Lafarge aims to be the undisputed leader in building materials.
Lafarge's core values of respect, care, and excellence have accompanied our success for more than 170 years.
Beyond product innovation, we have developed global and local integrated solutions.
These construction systems offer a solid package in terms of cost, durability, strength, insulation, appearance and ease of application.
We lead the evolution of building materials by listening intensely to you, our customers.
Our innovative background merges with our everyday work in project planning with customers to bring highly relevant solutions.
Innovation also means new services.
We are involved in the design phase of projects, working with architects and construction companies on solutions that have to meet an increasingly complex set of challenges, both technical and aesthetic.
We also work with our product contractors closely to ensure proper application for the end-user and at the very end of their life cycle, we recycle demolition products.
The innovative construction solutions that we introduce to the market do not happen overnight.
There is a massive amount of research and development (and funding) that happens first at LafargeHolcim Research Centre in Lyon, France - our “innovation hub”, in addition to local research and development being done at our Technical Centres in Canada.
