Saint-Gobain´s roots can be traced back to 1665, when Colbert, the Industry Minister of King Louis XIV, was directed to produce glass for the palace of Versailles. Since then, keeping its deep industrial tradition, the Group has evolved beyond its initial business and national frontiers into a global leader in functional materials. Today, the Saint-Gobain Group develops, produces and distributes functional materials (glass, ceramics, plastics, cast iron etc.) for professional clients in the building and industrial sectors.
