Saint-Gobain has sold its regional glass business Glassolutions Norway and Sweden to Mimir Invest AB, a Swedish investment firm. The divestment will be effective January 11, 2019 and the divested businesses will continue to use the Glassolutions brand under a franchise agreement.


Glassolutions Norway and Sweden manufactures and distributes glass products. This business has delivered an annual turnover of around €35 million and employs 170 people. Saint-Gobain will remain present in the region as a supplier of float glass, insulated glass units and high performance glass.

They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change.
