CertainTeed Gypsum Canada, Inc.
Manufacturer/Supplier in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Through the responsible development of innovative and sustainable building products, CertainTeed has helped shape the building products industry for more than 110 years. Founded in 1904 as General Roofing Manufacturing Company, today, CertainTeed¨ is North AmericaÕs leading brand of exterior and interior building products, including roofing, siding, fence, decking, railing, trim, insulation, gypsum and ceilings. A subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, one of the worldÕs largest and oldest building products companies, CertainTeed and its affiliates have more than 5,700 employees and more than 60 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and Canada. CertainTeed and our parent company Saint-Gobain share the belief that Ôwe do well by doing good.Õ That concept drives our philanthropic decisions both as a corporation and in how we hope our employees will respond within their communities. Two of our favorite causes are: Homes for Our Troops Ð an organization that builds mortgage-free homes for severely injured veterans post- 9/11, and YouthBuild USA Ð a program that encourages low-income youth to unleash their positive energy and intelligence to rebuild their communities and their lives. Sustainability has long been a part of our value system and corporate culture. However, it is a journey, and our perspective and actions continue to evolve. Initially, the business drivers were resource conservation (waste, water, energy, raw materials) and quality. CertainTeed takes pride in providing the best products to meet todayÕs market needs, but we are also looking ahead to offer our customers innovations for tomorrow. Using our definition of sustainable products, CertainTeed focuses on creating value at the triple bottom line for all stakeholders. This means offering high performing, affordable products that enhance usersÕ comfort and well-being while reducing overall environmental impacts. As part of our pledge to product stewardship, our design teams use life cycle thinking to improve the sustainability of a product beginning with product inception.
