Saint-Gobain and Dalsan merge their activities in Türkiye
Saint-Gobain and Dalsan have obtained the necessary approval from competition authorities to merge their plaster and plasterboard activities in Turkey.
Together, Saint-Gobain Rigips and Dalsan Alçi generated revenues in excess of €160 million in 2022. They will benefit from a leadership position with an annual production capacity of 100 million square meters for plasterboard, 2 million tons for plaster and 50 million meters for metal profiles, following the completion of a capital expenditure project at the new plant in Turgutlu (near Izmir) later in 2023.
They will benefit from a combined know-how, an enlarged production capacity and an optimized modern industrial footprint in plasterboard and plaster. Their customers in Turkey or export clients with growing needs in the Eastern Mediterranean will have access to the most innovative and complete portfolio of light and sustainable solutions for the construction and renovation of the building envelope as well as internal partitioning.
Present in Turkey since 1998, Saint-Gobain is currently operating 16 plants across the country and holds leadership positions in insulation, gypsum and construction chemicals. Saint-Gobain employs around 1,300 people in Turkey.
This partnership is in line with Saint-Gobain’s “Grow & Impact” strategy aiming to both strengthen the Group’s leadership and accelerate its growth by enriching its range of solutions for light and sustainable construction.
