Saint-Gobain team in Lebanon to provide assistance to construction specialists
Following last week explosion that hit Beirut- Lebanon on August 4th, leaving the city with tremendous loss of lives and destruction of part of the Capital. Saint-Gobain Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East team took immediate action to provide support in supplying the Lebanese market with building Glass from their glass float in Egypt.
200 containers of clear glass are loaded from Ain Al Soukhna to Lebanon (+120 to follow) to make sure that supply goes uninterrupted to its distributors and glass processors so that there will be no shortages that may cause unjustified price hikes on materials given the inflationary environment Lebanon is going through due to the economic crisis.
On the other hand, Saint-Gobain in France answered the call of solidarity such as POINT-P- SGDB France and SFIC- SGDB France by mobilizing their teams and delivered 9 semi-trailers and a 19-ton truck of plasterboard, glass wool and slabs that were loaded onto a helicopter carrier in the port of Toulon that was heading to Lebanon the night of Saturday August 8, 2020.
Other relief and support action will be announced in due course.
The Saint-Gobain team members in Beirut are fully mobilized to support their customers; engineers, architects, building distributors and contractors in providing technical advice around products and solutions they may require.
