Gyproc celebrates Saint-Gobain’s 350th Anniversary at Shanghai

ยิปรอค ร่วมเฉลิมฉลอง 350 ปี แซง-โกแบ็ง ณ เซี่ยงไฮ้

Bangkok – Thai Gypsum Products Public Company Limited, the manufacturer of gypsum innovations for 45 years and of the leading brand “Gyproc” under Saint-Gobain Group, celebrated the 350th Anniversary of Saint-Gobain Group. Gyproc’s executives, staff, partners and guests joined the ‘Saint-Gobain History and Innovation Exhibition’ and visited the Saint-Gobain Research and Development Center in Shanghai.

The exhibition and field trip in China formed part of Saint-Gobain’s 350th anniversary celebration series under the theme “350 Reasons to Believe in the Future.” Executives and guests will tour the world and experience a sensory and artistic journey through four cities, beginning on the 9th of January in Shanghai (China), then proceeding to São Paulo (Brazil) in April, Philadelphia (United States) in June, and Paris (France) in October 2015.

Saint-Gobain will offer an opportunity for people across the world to witness its virtual exhibition in five languages (French, English, German, Spanish, Brazilian and Portuguese), to be published online in February. With more than 700 archival documents, Saint-Gobain invites everyone to explore and rediscover its history via previously unseen documents and personal accounts.

The exhibition will allow visitors to enter a gallery of habitat innovations, to discover six in-depth thematic sections (Transformation of Material; From Advertising to Marketing; Saint-Gobain throughout the World; Major Achievements; The Word of Work; Corporate Governance and Culture), and to experience, thanks to a spectacular 3D reconstruction of the Manufacture des Glaces, mirror glassworks as they would have been on the eve of the French Revolution.

Connected to the virtual exhibition with QR codes and translated into five languages (French, English, German, Spanish, Brazilian and Portuguese), a Saint-Gobain anniversary book will be published by Editions Albin Michel in the spring. Around this time, the group’s “World 350” game will be available (in March) as a free download for smartphones and tablets.

Thompson Reuters reports that Saint-Gobain Group is present today in 64 countries with nearly 190,000 operating staff worldwide. The company is ranked in the World’s 100 Most Innovative Companies; this recognition shows the company’s tradition of innovation is embedded in its history and its identity, and the products can improve everyday life of both employees and consumers.
