Trend-setting dry lining solutions

Fermacell GmbH produces and distributes high-quality building materials for the dry lining boards market and is the market leader with gypsum fibre boards. The company stands for the dry construction business unit in the Xella group. With a sturdy brand awareness of 97 percent Fermacell is one of the best known construction material brand today, and virtually a synonym for gypsum fibre boards.

For more than 40 years Fermacell has been the industrial brand name for quality construction materials for dry construction. Fermacell gypsum fibre boards were first introduced on the German market in 1971. Until 2002 production and distribution of Fermacell gypsum fibre boards were one of the business units of the Fels group. After the take-over by the Xella group the brand Fermacell first belonged to the business unit Xella Dry Lining Systems GmbH. In 2009 the product name was supplemented by the company name: Fermacell GmbH. This uniform product and company name support further international expansion of the company, because the brand Fermacell is also quite well established in other countries.

The main business segments of Fermacell GmbH are the Fermacell gypsum fibre range for dry lining and interior work of walls, ceilings and floorings as well as Fermacell Powerpanel for wet rooms and semi-exposed external wall areas. The fire protection boards of Fermacell Aestuver complete the range.

The Fermacell gypsum fibre range is suitable for use in new construction as well as renovation. Wall and flooring elements offer professionals as well as do-it-yourselfers economic solutions for all areas of dry interior work. The gypsum fibre boards are made up of gypsum and cellulose paper fibres, which are mixed with water and pressed into stable boards, then dried and cut to size. The ecological product composition is a strong trend today – the boards are biologically tested.

Fermacell gypsum fibre boards and accessories are marketed in many European countries and the rest of the world. The head office of Fermacell GmbH is located in Germany, Duisburg, North-Rhine Westphalia. In Germany the product range is manufactured in a factory in Lower Saxony as well as in a factory in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Further production locations are in the Dutch town of Wijchen and in Orejo in northern Spain (situated near the Cantabrian capital of Santander). The organisation in Germany has five sales offices. Across Europe there are nine more sales and marketing offices: in Denmark, France, Great Britain, Austria, Poland, Czech, Italy, the Netherlands as well as Switzerland. In addition, Fermacell has founded a sales organisation in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, at the beginning of 2011.

The product range is complemented with a cement-bonded, fibreglass-reinforced building board: Fermacell Powerpanel. Fermacell Powerpanel HD is a special external wall board. Their prominent qualities are the strong and durable weather protection beside the static effectiveness. Fermacell Powerpanel H2O and Powerpanel TE offer solutions for wet rooms and areas of high humidity. While the Powerpanel H2O is used for applications on walls and ceilings, Powerpanel TE and Powerpanel SE are used on the floors.

Fermacell Aestuver products are high performance boards for fire prevention. Aestuver fire protection boards are class A1 rated, the highest possible classification. Beside the non-combustibility the cement-bonded, fibreglass-reinforced board is at the same time water and frost resistant, extremely durable, impact resistant and is easy to install. The board is perfectly suited for the protection of escape routes and emergency exits in the event of fire as well as for tunnel, plant room and underground construction. Both Fermacell Powerpanel and Fermacell Aestuver are produced in a factory in Saxony-Anhalt.

Xella produces and sells construction materials and raw materials. With its three divisions of wall construction materials, dry construction materials and lime, the company is the world’s largest manufacturer of aerated autoclaved concrete and calcium silicate blocks and the leading manufacturer of gypsum fibre boards. Xella bundles the competencies and know-how of the traditional brands, Ytong, Silka, Hebel, Fermacell and Fels, advancing them even further. The Xella group (Xella International S.a.r.l) has achieved a turnover of 1.3 billion euros in 2012 with 7,300 employees. Owners of Xella are the private equity companies PAI Partners and Goldman Sachs Capital.
