Saint-Gobain ADFORS is Investing Strongly to Support its Customers
Worldwide leader in mesh fabrics for construction applications, Saint-Gobain ADFORS accelerates its investments to anticipate market growth. The target is to accompany the growth of its customers.
Since the beginning of 2011, Saint-Gobain ADFORS has already increased capacities by 20%. To be ready for the expected growth of the ETICS market in coming years, the company has decided an additional capacity increase of 40% over the next two years, of which the first half will be fully operational for January 2012.
Saint-Gobain ADFORS has continuously supported the growing mesh fabrics market over the past 20 years. The company operates its own glass furnaces for mesh fabrics and has strongly invested in furnaces, weaving and coating equipment especially during the last decade. As a result, it disposes of state-of-the art technology in all important steps of mesh production and offers a wide range of innovative products for high-end quality applications. Product and technology developments in the Czech plant are supported by the Saint-Gobain R&D centres.
Drawing on its extensive know-how, Saint-Gobain ADFORS has developed a broad product range that is recognised for its intrinsic quality including, non-flammability, rot resistance, high-mechanical strength and excellent performance in an alkaline environment.
Mesh fabrics from Saint-Gobain ADFORS are the best protection for external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS). The products guarantee the durability of the whole system through high-mechanical resistance by preventing cracks from appearing in mortars and avoiding any possibility of infiltration.
