Message from our CEO

‘Inspiring ways of living’ is Etex’s promise to people around the globe. Etex offers comprehensive solutions for big buildings and small houses, modern apartments and historic buildings, small city compounds and countryside shelters. With ‘Inspiring ways of living’, our company transcends cultural and historical differences — crossing borders and continents — to offer people one of life's basic necessity, shelter, and beyond.

We want to inspire builders, architects, building companies, as well as distributors and specifiers. Our standards are very high, as our quality products have to last for decades. We continuously improve our production processes to further enhance quality, using fewer raw materials and consuming less energy along the way.

We continuously drive innovation efforts to generate new products and solutions, while offering the best value for money. In construction — a tightly regulated market — we make a commitment to improve existing materials, study best practices and apply ideas from one continent to the other. With our portfolio, we endeavour to provide affordable, sustainable, comfortable and beautiful living spaces that contribute to a better world.

Our promise ‘inspiring ways of living’ also impacts the way our group does business and how we organise our activities. Our employees’ well-being is our number one priority. We go to great lengths to create a healthy and safe working environment. Through our high-performance culture, developed based on our Etex values, Passion for Excellence, Connect and Care and Pioneer to Lead, we strive for the best in everything we do. What is more, by supporting numerous projects around the globe, we aim to give a home to those who cannot afford any shelter.

To invest in quality, innovation and safety, we can rely on our strong financial backbone. Year after year, our dynamic performance delivers consistent results. We can look back on over 100 years of experience : a long history of stable growth in our diversified activities, within a wide geographic reach. In short, we are a solid group with a long and colourful history and a promising future!
