Americas Products' strategy is to build a national footprint of an optimised portfolio of businesses which offer regional leadership positions across a full range of Building Products (precast and architectural concrete, clay and fencing products, packaged lawn and garden products, and packaged concrete mixes) and BuildingEnvelopeTM solutions (glass and aluminium glazing systems) under the Oldcastle brand name. A coordinated approach at both a national and regional level achieves economies of scale and facilitates sharing of best practices which drive operational and commercial improvement. Through Oldcastle’s North American research and development centre, a continuous pipeline of innovative value-added products and design solutions are maintained.
Operating in 40 states, CRH has the breadth of product range and national footprint to provide a national service to customers with the personal touch of a local supplier. Focussing on strategic and national accounts, the new Oldcastle Building Solutions initiative provides an additional platform for growth as it is uniquely positioned in the industry to offer solutions to customers across all phases of building construction. Employees total approximately 15,500 at over 400 locations.
