Two large entities, Grindwell Norton Limited (GNO), a publicly traded company, and Saint-Gobain India Pvt Ltd (SGI) and a few smaller entities house Saint-Gobain’s businesses in India.
“India has been an important market and investment destination for Saint-Gobain and, going forward, will be even more so. Saint-Gobain believes that it can play an important role in shaping the future by designing, manufacturing and distributing building and high-performance materials, which provide innovative solutions to meet the challenges of growth, energy efficiency and environmental protection. This is the core of Saint-Gobain’s strategy.
