Saint-Gobain acquires Kirson
Founded in 1963, and located in Bavaria, Germany, Kirson makes reinforcement scrim and combination products of scrim and nonwoven fabrics. These solutions primarily serve the waterproofing roofing markets as well as floor coverings and construction panels. In 2016, Kirson’s revenues reached 27 million euros.
The integration of Kirson into Saint-Gobain’s High-Performance Materials Activity will complete Adfors’ offer for the waterproofing membrane market and help develop the sales of its products worldwide.
This acquisition is fully aligned with Saint-Gobain’s strategy to consolidate its positioning on high performance solutions in the housing and construction sector.
This project is subject to the approval of the German antitrust authorities.
