With origins dating back to 1888, James Hardie Industries plc (ASX:JHX) has over 100 years’ experience in the development, manufacture, and distribution of fibre reinforced cement building products. James Hardie Industries pioneered the modern fibre cement product that is used throughout the global building industry today.

James Hardie employs nearly 5,000 people worldwide and has operations across Australia, New Zealand, the United States, the Philippines, and Europe. The company’s broad portfolio of building products encompasses external cladding, wall linings, weatherboards, flooring, renders, wall systems and decking, to name a few. Its products are used across new housing constructions, renovations, manufactured housing and a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. James Hardie pioneered the use of asbestos-free fibre-cement products in the 1980’s.

James Hardie’s Australian head office is located in Sydney and the company’s global headquarters is situated in Dublin, Ireland after redomiciling from The Netherlands in 2010. The original James Hardie organisation first listed on the ASX in 1951 and, today, is also dual listed on the New York Stock Exchange. 

The James Hardie share price was trading at record highs in early 2020 prior to falling significantly during the March bear market. Since then, however, the company’s shares went on to regain their losses over the following five months.
