Americas Distribution strategy is focused on being the supplier of choice to specialty contractors of Exterior Products, (roofing and siding), and Interior Products, (ceilings and walls), as well as primarily residential Solar Roofing panels. Demand in the Exterior Products business is largely influenced by residential and commercial replacement activity with the key products having an average lifespan of 25 to 30 years.
Demand for Interior Products is primarily driven by the new residential, multi-family and commercial construction markets.
Through CRH’s commitment to continuously making businesses better, we employ state-of-the-art customer facing IT technologies, disciplined and focused cash and asset management, and well established procurement and commercial systems to support supply chain optimisation and enable us to provide superior customer service.
