Saint-Gobain PAM is the pipeline activity within the Saint-Gobain group. It offers comprehensive ductile iron pipeline solutions for water and sewerage.
As part of its sustainable development approach, Saint-Gobain PAM is today developing innovative systems that comply with international standards and can be adapted to customer requirements, in order to invent the materials of the future.
The origins of Saint-Gobain PAM spring from the foundation of the Pont-à-Mousson factory in 1856, the beginning of a history rich in development.
The rise of the company was founded on two principal factors: leaps in technological advancement and a strong internationalization of its industrial and commercial developments. From 1887, the company's exports grew and the first factory in Brazil was founded in 1937.
The adoption of centrifugation in 1928 followed by the discovery of ductile iron at the end of the 1940's contributed to the mass-production of high-quality pipes.
Strengthened by its technological expertise, the brand has become a global leader in its field. Today, ever responsive to the needs of its clients, Saint-Gobain PAM is continuing its development in the same spirit of innovation, growth and industrial excellence.
