Saint-Gobain North America

MALVERN, PASaint-Gobain, through its building products subsidiary CertainTeed Inc., has formed a new partnership with TimberHP, a Maine-based manufacturer of insulating wood composites. This collaboration will enable CertainTeed to distribute TimberHP’s wood fiber insulation products across North America, and exclusively in Canada.

Executed with the support of NOVA by Saint-Gobain, the company’s venture arm, this partnership aims to enhance Saint-Gobain’s leadership in light and sustainable construction. The alliance is expected to bolster Saint-Gobain’s sustainable offerings and improve its ability to meet customer needs.

TimberHP was founded by two entrepreneurs: Matthew O’Malia, an award-winning architect known for high-performance, cost-competitive designs; and Dr. Joshua Henry, a materials chemist with extensive experience in energy conservation and renewable energy solutions. The company produces sustainable insulation solutions from residual wood chips and hydroelectricity, aligning with Saint-Gobain’s global sustainability goals. The product line will include loose fill, batt, and rigid board insulation.

“Driven by our Purpose of Making the World a Better Home, this exclusive partnership with TimberHP enhances the sustainable solutions we are bringing to our stakeholders throughout Canada,” said Julie Bonamy, Chief Executive Officer of Saint-Gobain Canada. “This is a welcome addition to Saint-Gobain Canada’s light and sustainable construction portfolio, which will further our vision to provide a full offering of building materials and solutions to our customers.”

Joshua Henry, Chief Executive Officer of TimberHP, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership. “It is a huge vote of confidence in our technology and our team at TimberHP to partner with a brand as innovative and impactful as CertainTeed,” Henry said. “It is essential that we mold the future of construction to be exceptionally easy, effective, energy-efficient, and sustainable, and we look forward to addressing those industry needs together.”

This collaboration represents a significant step towards enhancing sustainable construction materials in North America, promising to deliver efficient, eco-friendly insulation solutions to a broader market.
