With almost 16,300 employees at nearly 350 locations, our breadth of product range and footprint provide national service to customers with the personal touch of a local supplier.

How we create value:

Americas Products’ strategy is to build a portfolio of networked and scalable businesses with leading market positions across a balanced range of products and end-use markets. We consistently invest in commercial and operational excellence processes, innovation and technology to ensure continuous improvement. Our commitment to building better businesses is demonstrated in our approach at national and regional levels to facilitate best practice sharing. We leverage our unique scale, breadth and capabilities to build competitive advantage in key segments and channels. We maintain a pipeline of value-added products and design solutions through our research and development centres.

Focusing strategic accounts and influencers in the construction supply chain on CRH’s product portfolio, the Oldcastle Building Solutions group provides an additional avenue for growth as it is well positioned to create value for stakeholders across all phases of construction.

How we are structured:

Americas Products is organised into three strategic business product groups, Architectural Products, Precast and BuildingEnvelope® which maintain distinct organisations for their business-specific strategies, with the centre supporting finance, business development and strategy, strategic account development and procurement. Each group has smaller national or regional positions in product lines that support and complement its core businesses.
