Etex Roofing

Providing slates, tiles, corrugated sheets and roofing components both for the residential and agricultural segments, Etex Roofing – which became Etex Residential Roofing in January 2019 – is active mainly in Europe.

In the face of challenging market conditions, we prioritised brand recognition and service levels in 2018.

Paul van Oyen,
CEO of Etex and Interim Head of Etex Residential Roofing

In 2018, Etex Roofing prepared for a new divisional structure. Can you provide more background for this decision?

Residential roofing in Europe has been undergoing a consolidation in the last few years. As a major player in this sector, Etex explored several options for addressing this trend, with a new organisational structure emerging as the best choice for a sustainable future. Beginning in January 2019, Etex Roofing became Etex Residential Roofing.

This new division combines clay and concrete tiles and components for residential roofing. The fibre cement activities of Etex Roofing and Etex Façade are now gathered under a new business unit, Etex Exteriors.

Which impact will the new structure have on Etex Residential Roofing’s operations and performance?

The division is now split into two main business regions: the UK, Portugal and South Africa on the one hand, and Central and Eastern Europe, the Benelux and South East Europe on the other. The overarching objective for these changes is to give Etex the sharp focus we need to drive innovative developments in our different markets while maximising the benefits of our global leadership position. Etex Residential Roofing will focus mainly on operational excellence, to make sure we can reach optimal performance in changing market conditions.

Our adaptability has already been proven by the flexibility and strong leadership that were shown these last few years in our Spanish business, and more recently in Germany, and we intend to pursue our efforts.

Product spotlight: Tecta

Tecta responds to the market’s most urgent demands – but it also goes beyond them. Tecta slates are six to ten times more resistant to scratches and impacts than standard slates. The water-repellent effect prevents moss growth by keeping moisture from standing on the slate. At the same time, the Tecta UV-cured coating prevents discolouration and white efflorescence effect. It also protects against dirt and dust.
