Acquisition of Lafarge Gypsum South Africa is now completed - 28/01/2016

A few months ago, Etex announced the acquisition of the South African gypsum business of Lafarge. On 19 January 2016, the global building materials group successfully completed the acquisition, once all customary closing conditions were met.

As a result, Lafarge Gypsum South Africa becomes part of Marley Building Systems – Etex’s local South African company. By combining the product portfolios of both companies, Etex will be able to offer a full scope of building solutions. This unique and competitive offering meets the changing demand in the Southern African market, characterised by a gradual shift from traditional to dry or lightweight construction.
