It is an exciting time to be a part of Firestone Building Products (FSBP) as it announced its acquisition by LafargeHolcim, a global leader in building solutions with a focus on sustainability.

The transaction, worth an estimated $3.4 billion has now been completed and all 1,900 FSBP jobs safeguarded at the Tennessee headquarters.

Global leaders in flat roofing

LafargeHolcim has big plans for Firestone Building Products, particularly in the European and Latin American flat roof markets. This leverages the already strong position held by FSBP since the 1980s.

Jan Jenisch, LafargeHolcim CEO said: “I warmly welcome the Firestone Building Products team into the LafargeHolcim family. Together, we will lead this iconic company’s next era of growth to become the global leader in flat roofing systems.

“As we expand its leadership in the US to Europe and Latin America, I want the world to know that ‘NOBODY COVERS YOU BETTER’ than Firestone. I am excited about the strong growth prospects, accelerated by the many opportunities from President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan. With its leading roofing systems, Firestone Building Products makes us a partner of choice from rooftop to foundation. This truly is a milestone for LafargeHolcim as we become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions.”
