Since 2000 Calders & Grandidge have been a part of the Saint-Gobain group, supplying pressure treated timber materials into its supply chain network.
Saint-Gobain is the world leader in the habitat and construction markets. Designing, manufacturing and distributing building materials, and providing innovative solutions to meet growing demand in emerging economies, for energy efficiency and for environmental protection.
Since its beginnings in 1665, Saint-Gobain has consistently demonstrated its ability to invent products that improve quality of life. As one of the top 100 industrial groups in the world, it continues to deploy its technological know-how, often in partnership with the most prestigious universities and laboratories in the world.
To give an idea of the group’s commitment to innovation, 20% of Saint-Gobain products did not exist five years ago. Saint-Gobain’s businesses form a robust, integrated supply chain partner that has the strength and flexibility to support the most diverse range of customer requirements. This adds up to a unique capability that can support everything from the biggest landmark projects, such as St Pancras International Station and the O2, to ongoing repair and maintenance programmes.
Saint-Gobain works closely with its supply-chain to ensure that products produced and supplied to the Group not only meet legislative requirements but also consider important factors like, sustainability of raw materials, lowering the embodied carbon of the products, and ensuring that social conditions for workers meet internationally recognised standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact - which Saint-Gobain signed up to in 2003.
