Saint-Gobain Expands in Canada with Acquisition of The Bailey Group

Saint-Gobain North America

MALVERN, PASaint-Gobain has completed its acquisition of The Bailey Group of Companies, a Canadian manufacturer of metal building solutions. This purchase, announced on April 3, adds approximately 690 employees working across twelve manufacturing sites in Canada. Bailey will contribute more than C$500 million in revenues to Saint-Gobain.

This marks Saint-Gobain’s third major Canadian acquisition in three years. Previous acquisitions include Kaycan in 2022, a leader in siding and exterior solutions, and Building Products of Canada in 2023, a major manufacturer of residential roofing shingles and wood fiber insulation panels. These additions complement CertainTeed Canada’s extensive portfolio of interior building materials. Bailey will further enrich Saint-Gobain’s range of interior and exterior solutions.

The Bailey Group will continue operating under its current brand name, joining Saint-Gobain’s North American construction business within the Americas region.

Saint-Gobain has also made several other growth investments in Canada recently. In February, the company installed a recovery system at its gypsum facility in Vancouver, reducing Scope 1 carbon dioxide emissions by 15%. Last September, Saint-Gobain completed the $1.325 billion acquisition of Building Products of Canada Corp., reinforcing its leadership in light and sustainable construction.

In 2022, Saint-Gobain strengthened its position in Canada and the U.S. with the acquisitions of Kaycan and GCP, enhancing its portfolio in siding and construction chemicals. Additionally, in June 2022, Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed Canada announced an upgrade to their gypsum facility outside Montreal. This upgrade aims to increase production capacity by up to 40% and transition the plant to renewable electricity from Hydro-Quebec, making it the first zero-carbon wallboard plant in North America for scopes 1 and 2 emissions.
