SAINT GOBAIN was created in 1665 as a part of the plan devised by King Louis XIV & Jean ? Bapptiste Colbert (Finance Minister) to restore the French economy. As a result the Royal Glass works came in to existence. Saint Gobain established a near monopoly in 17th century and Ousted Venice, which was then the leader in this sector. In the 19th century, an environment of new-found economic freedom and open international competition prompted the Saint Gobain Company to cross the French borders and organize its glass production on a European basis. This strategy led the company to establish units in Germany (1857), Italy (1889) and Spain (1904). Now Saint Gobain has a global presence.

In 1970, Saint Gobain merged with ?Point-a-mousson', a company that specialized in manufacturing Cast iron pipes. In 1990, Saint Gobain acquired Norton, U.S.A. With the first half of the 20th century came the diversification of glass applications (Glass wool, Glass fiber, Hollow glass). In 1970, Saint Gobain's merger with ?Point-a ?mousson', the world leader in cast iron piping, gave birth to a producer of materials and capital goods geared to the global dimension of its markets. Since 1997, the group focuses on business a sector in which holds strong positions and the assets necessary for growth. The acquisition of ?Polier' in 1996 completed its expertise in distribution.
