350 REASONS TO BELIEVE IN THE FUTURE!
"We are celebrating Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary. The history of the men and women who together have built the oldest company included in the CAC 40 French stock market index and one of the oldest manufacturing companies in the world. We have decided to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to promote our strategy, values and the bonds that link us to our stakeholders. In particular, this is an opportunity for us to remind our customers of our commitment to working at their side and at their service. Indeed, we have been fulfilling our customer-sensitive mission for more than 15 generations by finding solutions to the problems they encounter and by helping them build long-lasting successes.
This anniversary is an opportunity and an occasion to remind everyone of the strength that is acquired through 350 years of history and 350 years of ongoing innovations. Our experience means we understand and focus on the long term. It also gives us the composure and agility to adapt to the ever-changing world. Our history is proof that we are a company that has consistently pushed back boundaries and taken up technological challenges. As we look back over our past and examine today’s world and what we do, we are convinced that there are many reasons to believe in the future. So, it is with our sights set on the future and innovation that we are celebrating this anniversary. It is our optimism that we want to share with you in 2015."
