Employees from Saint-Gobain, the world’s largest building materials company, participated on Nov. 3 in a hands-on bike building exercise to build team camaraderie. Employees were divided into 11 groups and tasked with working together to build a bike. After employees completed the building activity, the bikes were donated to children from the Boys & Girls Club of Chester. The children arrived at the Saint-Gobain and Certain-Teed North American Headquarters to test out their new bikes and take them for a spin.
Saint-Gobain designs and manufactures high-performance building materials. Some of the notable projects their products have been used in: the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, the glass pyramid at the Louvre, the Statue of Liberty, the World Trade Center, and components on the Mars Rover Curiosity.
The bikes were built at the company’s North American headquarters near Malvern. Saint-Gobain has more than 150 locations in North America and approximately 14,000 employees. In the United States and Canada, Saint-Gobain reported sales of approximately $5.7 billion in 2015.
