Saint-Gobain & Dalsan to merge their plaster and plasterboard activities in Turkey

LONDON, UK: Saint-Gobain and the Turkish group Dalsan have entered into a joint-venture agreement pursuant to which they will merge their plaster and plasterboard activities in Turkey.

Together, Saint-Gobain Rigips and Dalsan Alçi generated revenues in excess of €100 million in 2021. 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 (Manisa) in 2023.

Thanks to its combined know-how and an enlarged production capacity of plasterboard and plaster, this partnership will offer Turkish customers 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. Saint-Gobain and Dalsan will also benefit from an optimized modern industrial footprint ready to serve local developers as well as export clients in neighboring countries.

Present in Turkey since 1998, Saint-Gobain is currently operating 17 plants across the country and holds leadership positions in insulation, gypsum and construction chemicals. Saint-Gobain currently employs around 1,300 people in Turkey.

This transaction is fully in line with Saint-Gobain’s “Grow & Impact” plan. It will strengthen the Group’s presence and accelerate its growth in the region.

Closing of the transaction is subject to antitrust approvals and other customary closing conditions that are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
