Saint-Gobain acquires panelised roofing company


Saint-Gobain has acquired SIG Roofspace Ltd to deliver more offsite manufactured solutions for the housebuilding sector

Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland completed the acquisition of offsite manufacturing specialists SIG Roofspace Ltd on 14 December 2018.

The business, set-up in 2008 provides a turn-key panelised roofing and room-in-roof solution to housebuilders.

Mike Chaldecott, Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland CEO said: “We’re delighted to welcome Roofspace to Saint-Gobain.  They are a great business that provides solutions to customers that saves them time and streamlines the construction process.

“We know that the construction industry has to be more efficient, more productive, more innovative and embrace offsite manufacturing. Roofspace are already offering customers these benefits and have delivered roofs for over 2,500 new build homes in the last year”.

“Roofspace manufacture their off-site solutions within factory conditions before delivering to their customer’s site.  This service means that Roofspace can install multiple roof packages a day rather than one roof taking 10-12 weeks. This type of construction, manufactured offsite, ensures greater control and accuracy of the finished roof solution and ultimately enhances the performance and comfort of the home for the home owner”.

“Roofspace further accelerates our capability to serve the rapidly expanding offsite manufacturing sector adding to our expertise which already includes our Pasquill business, and their timber roof-trusses, Scotframe’s timber-frame houses and Saint-Gobain steel-frame systems”.

“I look forward to working with Roofspace to develop their business and services over the years ahead”.

SIG Roofspace Ltd will now be known as Roofspace.
