Americas Distribution’s strategy is focussed on being the supplier of choice to the professional roofing and siding contractor and to applying this successful distribution model to the Interior Products demand segment. Demand in the Exterior Products business is largely influenced by residential and commercial replacement activity with the key products having an average life span of 25 years. The Interior Products division has less exposure to replacement activity as demand is largely driven by the new commercial construction market. State-of-the-art IT, disciplined and focussed cash management and well-established procurement and commercial systems support supply chain optimisation and enable CRH to provide superior customer service.
Operating in 31 States, growth opportunities include investment in new regions, in complementary private label and energy-saving product offerings, and in other attractive building materials distribution segments that service professional dealer networks. Employees total approximately 3,500 at over 180 operating locations.
