Wienerberger today announces its acquisition of Struxura in Belgium. With the 
take-over of Struxura BV, a producer of prefabricated wall panels, Wienerberger 
continues to consistently and successfully pursue its sustainable development 
into a full-range system provider while, at the same time, offering its 
customers enhanced convenience in line with the Group's ambitious ESG targets. 
Struxura employs a total workforce of 25 employees at two locations and 
generates revenues of approx. EUR 8 million. 
 
Struxura is a manufacturer of ceramic loadbearing wall panels and concrete 
elements. The company operates two production sites in West Flanders. Through 
this acquisition, Wienerberger is broadening and optimizing its product 
portfolio, given that Struxura has a successful track record in prefabrication 
based on a scalable product range with fully integrated BIM (Building 
Information Modeling). With digital solutions of this type, which facilitate not 
only networking during the design phase, but also the construction and 
management of buildings, Wienerberger is supporting the trend toward faster, 
more precise, and more sustainable building construction. The prefabricated 
ceramic wall panels are produced by means of a computer-controlled and fully 
automatic process at a plant in Poperinge in West Flanders. In sync with these 
developments, Wienerberger is consistently advancing the drive toward 
digitalization with digital BIM solutions for its design and production 
processes. 
 
With Struxura, Wienerberger plans to further strengthen its position in the 
current sales markets. At the same time, additional opportunities for market 
growth are expected to arise in the context of public calls for tender for 
medium-sized buildings and inner-city projects, where speed and quality of 
execution are particular of importance. 
 
Heimo Scheuch, Chairman of the Managing Board of Wienerberger AG, says, 
"Struxura is a well-established company with a strong market presence and has 
recently opened a second production site. The company is a valuable addition to 
the portfolio of the Wienerberger Group and our digital range of services and 
solutions. We are thus consistently consolidating our position as a full-range 
provider in the new build and renovation segments."
