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.
