James Hardie Europe GmbH is a subsidiary of the worldwide operating James Hardie Industries plc (JHIplc), which was founded in Australia in 1888. Today James Hardie Industries plc is an international market leader for fibre cement building materials with enormously strong market positions in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines.

James Hardie

Since the first Hardie® fiber cement product was launched in Australia and the USA in the mid-1980s, the global player has continued to develop its innovation with its own research and product development teams. As a result of decades of research work, Hardie® Plank and Hardie® Panel facade claddings are now available to the market - some 6 million houses worldwide later - as a building material that is slim but particularly stable and impact-resistant, does not shrink or swell and does not crack when used for years under the most extreme climatic conditions. 



fermacell® gypsum fibre boards are the ideal complement to the product portfolio of James Hardie. The first gypsum fiber board - and thus the first gypsum fiber board in Germany - rolled off the production line at the fermacell® plant in Münchehof near Goslar in the early 1970s. This laid the foundation for the success of the fermacell® brand. Pioneering innovations have made fermacell® one of the best-known building material brands in the industry and the European market leader for high-quality gypsum fibre and cement-bonded boards.


The Aestuver® brand has been around since 1989 and has developed into one of the leading German brands in the field of glass fibre lightweight concrete technology. Today, Aestuver® fire protection panels stand for high-quality fire protection solutions in the field of electrical installations and underground traffic systems. A wide range of products for bulkheads, fire protection coatings and fire protection joints is also available under the brand.
