One in four Saint-Gobain products sold today did not exist five years ago. These products need experts in communication and marketing, as well as young, talented individuals with new ideas for how to promote them.

Saint-Gobain owns a multitude of brands that mainly target businesses, but also consumers. 

Our goal? To make our solutions and innovations more visible on the construction, healthcare, mobility, and industrial markets, and to switch from one sector to another thanks to our mobility program. 

So where does digital technology fit in?

Let’s take a look at how digital technology is used at Saint-Gobain. 

The Group is developing a range of services for specifiers on the construction market (general contractors, architects, engineering firms, building designers, etc.), as well as other targets. These services are part of a wider trend toward digitization in the sector, particularly with the development of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
