Holcim expands presence in US roofing market
25 January 2023

Holcim has acquired a state-of-the-art fibreglass mat facility in Maryland, USA, from an affiliate company of Maryland Paper. This transaction expands Holcim’s technology platform for high-performing and durable roofing systems. By integrating fibreglass mat into its business, Holcim aims to deliver more value for its customers with an enhanced supply chain. According to the company, this investment supports Holcim’s expansion in the fast-growing US$45bn North America roofing market.

Jamie Gentoso, global head, Solutions & Products, said, “This acquisition is a perfect fit for our building envelope business. Fibreglass mat is a key component in Malarkey’s sustainable shingles and Elevate’s highest performing ISOGARD insulation boards. It enables us to deliver more value for our customers from an innovation, performance and supply chain perspective. I look forward to welcoming the fibreglass team to our Holcim family to accelerate green growth together.”

The new facility, based near Hagerstown, Maryland, will start by enhancing Malarkey’s range of sustainable and resilient shingles in the US residential roofing market. As of next year, Holcim will further leverage this facility to advance its range of ISOGARD insulation boards, delivering the highest level of energy efficiency in the US commercial roofing market.
