Building solutions provider Wienerberger has successfully acquired BPD Holdings Limited, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of roofing and construction membranes, natural ventilation and specialist building products. The acquisition agreement was signed on 1 April 2019 and closed on 7 May 2019.

Wienerberger is the UK’s leading provider of wall, roof and landscaping innovations, offering one of the broadest product portfolios in the construction business. Through the acquisition of BPD Holdings Limited, Wienerberger will further enhance their roof product offering with the availability of a collection of market-leading, cost-effective, sustainable and energy efficient solutions.

BPD Holdings Limited is the parent company of a group of businesses including Building Product Design Ltd and BPD Manufacturing Solutions. Established in the UK 35 years ago, BPD offers a diverse and high-quality range of over 2,200 products to the UK and international housebuilder market through the recognisable Protect, Passivent and Glidevale brands.

Operating from seven UK sites with a workforce of over 200 people, most of BPD’s products are manufactured at their facilities in Pinxton, Nottinghamshire and Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. BPD will be operating as an independent business, with their existing Board in place and support from Wienerberger.

BPD shares Wienerberger’s track record of product innovation and commitment to new product development, with a pioneering Research & Development team and impressive manufacturing capabilities.

Keith Barker, Managing Director of Wienerberger UK, commented, “We are delighted to announce that BPD has become part of the Wienerberger family. I believe that their high-quality solutions are an excellent fit with our current product portfolio and will strengthen our position in the market as a full-range supplier. There is also a great synergy between the core values we share as companies, such as a focus on innovation, technical expertise and quality of customer service. We are looking forward to the future opportunities that the investment in this highly-regarded and growing business will bring and intend to continue building on the success that BPD has already achieved.”
