The innovative fibre cement materials Etex produces strike a balance between aesthetics, authenticity, high quality and low maintenance. This combination meets the needs of future-focussed builders and architects who are increasingly concerned with sustainability and energy efficiency.

Brands and products

Constantly seeking to develop lighter, stronger and better materials, our Etex Exteriors division targets three segments. Architects around the world appreciate the dedication to form, functionality and eco-friendliness of our façade materials. Meanwhile, residential customers value the ease-of-use, diversity and flexibility of our façade, roof and terrace materials. Furthermore, our fibre cement corrugated sheets occupy a privileged position in agricultural roofing. Key brands are Equitone, Cedral, Eternit and Euronit.

Our Etex Exteriors division is growing steadily – and our strategy for the future is to pursue this track in every region where we are active. We aim to make our fibre-cement products top of mind in our target audiences: architects, homeowners and farmers.
