Braas Monier, Schiedel’s mother company, has been acquired by Standard Industries in May this year and subsequently joined forces with Icopal, the European leader in flat roofing. With Braas Monier and Icopal, Standard Industries brings together two strong, highly complementary roofing businesses to build a world-class solution provider, featuring a diverse product portfolio of pitched and flat roofing technology.

The new name for the combined European leader in roofing, BMI Group, incorporates elements from both Braas Monier and Icopal and symbolises their joint future. While the roofing businesses of the former Braas Monier and Icopal groups currently undergo an integration process to realise the benefits of a truly combined roofing business, Schiedel is not affected by this merger in its operating business or management structures. Unchanged, we will support you with durable and highly sophisticated complete chimney and energy systems, intelligent assembly solutions and customized service.

I strongly believe that the newly created BMI group will benefit from the stability of a privately held business with similarly aligned values and be more resilient in the face of market uncertainties. BMI’s enhanced scale will furthermore support investment in new product technology and innovation.

“I hope you share our enthusiasm for the significant opportunities that lie ahead of us, driven by our ambition to be your preferred business partner in the industry.”

Warm regards, Alessandro Cappellini
Alessandro Cappellini, MBA / President Schiedel International
