Wienerberger has announced the acquisition of UK-based BPD Holdings to further expand its roof accessory offering and complement its existing roof product portfolio in the UK and Europe.
As a prominent producer of roof underlays, wall and construction membranes, building ventilation systems and specialist roof products, Wienerberger says BPD will become a centre of excellence for innovative roofing solutions within the company. BPD will be tasked with developing innovative solutions designed to be implemented and sold across the broader Wienerberger network, leveraging the combined regional strengths and product expertise. With a large product offering including the Protect, Passivent, Glidevale and Kingfisher brands, as well as a tailor-made solutions service, BPD operates two UK production sites in Nottinghamshire and South Wales.
Wienerberger AG CEO Heimo Scheuch commented: “The UK is one of the strongest and most innovative markets for roofing products, and a key growth area for us as a business. The acquisition of BPD will strengthen our own position as a full-range roof systems supplier thanks to their reputation for innovation and production expertise. BPD’s specialist roof accessories are a perfect fit with our existing roof portfolio and we look forward to being able to promote them throughout the UK and Europe.”
Wienerberger’s says its growth strategy is focused on advancing its market position in the roof, façade, wall and paver sectors, bringing building materials solutions for the whole building envelope to the construction industry. Growth is to be generated through innovation, new product development and selective bolt-on acquisitions.
