MUMBAI: Riding high on the India growth story, building materials manufacturer Saint-Gobain targets over Rs 10,000 crore in revenues from the country by 2019.

"India has been an important market and investment destination for Saint-Gobain and, going forward, will be even more so. We see a strong and profitable growth of all our businesses here. We expect to more than double our business in India and to exceed sales of Rs 10,000 crore by 2019," Saint-Gobain General Delegate for India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, Anand Mahajan told reporters here today.

Currently, the company has 20 manufacturing sites and about 4,900 employees in India. In 2014, Saint-Gobain registered sales of about Rs 4,800 crore, he said.
