Roofing has been one of Etex’s core businesses for over a century. We don’t just know the roofing industry – we helped shape it. The diverse roof systems we develop are suitable for many applications.

Brands and products

From clay and concrete tiles to roofing components, Etex has the experience to craft a portfolio tailored to today’s market needs. Our strong brands – such as Marley, Creaton and Umbelino Monteiro – stand for excellent and unique systems that we tailor to the specific needs of our customers.

Ambition

Etex aims to pioneer technologies for the future of the building industry. Our comprehensive roofing systems demonstrate the extent of our expertise, paving the way for global leadership in terms of end-to-end residential roofing.

Markets

Etex is Europe’s second-largest manufacturer and seller of pitched roofing, and has one of the broadest portfolios of roofing and associated solutions.

Main trends

Some of the major markets in which we are active are characterised by slow, adverse trends in the long run. Think of the longstanding preference for flat roofs over pitched roofs in western Europe, for example. Etex sees this as an opportunity to further consolidate our leadership based on operational excellence and system innovation. As the need for efficient construction methods is growing rapidly, roofing technologies are becoming increasingly important in all segments. After all, customers expect their roofs to perform in new ways by generating energy, collecting water, insulating spaces, supplying light, and more.
