Leading building solutions manufacturer Wienerberger has announced the acquisition of Building Product Design Group (BPD) – a company with a substantial presence in the East Midlands – to further expand their roof accessory offering and complement their existing roof product portfolio in the UK and Europe.
As a prominent producer of roof underlays, wall membranes, building ventilation systems and specialist roof products, BPD will become a centre of excellence for innovative roofing solutions within Wienerberger.
BPD will be tasked with developing innovative solutions designed to be implemented and sold across the broader Wienerberger network, leveraging the combined regional strengths and product expertise. With a large product offering including the Protect, Passivent and Glidevale brands, as well as a tailor-made solutions service, BPD operates two highly advanced and efficient UK production sites in Nottinghamshire and South Wales.
A growing business, BPD most recently generated annual revenues of some £30million and has over 200 employees.
Heimo Scheuch CEO says: “The UK is one of the strongest and most innovative markets for roofing products, and a key growth area for us as a business.
“The acquisition of BPD will strengthen our own position as a full-range roof systems supplier thanks to their reputation for innovation and production expertise.
“BPD’s specialist roof accessories are a perfect fit with our existing roof portfolio, helping to fuel future growth throughout the UK and Europe. There is also a great synergy between the core values we share as companies, such as a focus on innovation, technical expertise and quality of customer service.”
