Europe Building Products
In April 2018, we completed the acquisition of Fermacell, a market leader in fiber gypsum and cement- bonded boards in Europe. Similar to James Hardie’s fiber cement products, we believe Fermacell’s fiber gypsum boards deliver superior performance relative to competitive products, such as gypsum plaster and OSB boards.
Fermacell’s products comprise fiber gypsum and cement-bonded boards, two complementary products in the high-performance board space, mainly used in: (1) timber frame construction; (2) dry lining applications; (3) DIY; and (4) structural fire protection. Fermacell’s products are sold into the residential repair and remodel, commercial and residential new construction markets.
