With its Ytong, Silka and Hebel brands, Xella is one of the world's largest manufacturers of autoclaved aerated concrete and calcium silicate units.

Fermacell and Fermacell Aestuver provide dry lining and fire protection solutions.

The Xella group bundles the expertise and know-how of Ytong, Silka, Multipor, Hebel, Ursa, Fermacell and Fermacell Aestuver and is continuously developing these brands. Xella is one of just a few European building materials companies to operate its own Research and Development Center which focuses its work on three main areas: Product and process research, applied research and construction physics.

Xella products are sustainable both in manufacture and use. They also undergo a process of continuous development. Our products therefore make an important contribution to the construction of energy-efficient, high-quality buildings and consequently also to environmental protection and the conservation of resources. Our products have received numerous awards and certificates for their environmentally friendly characteristics.
