Unlike companies that wait until the last minute, Saint-Gobain's website already has a 350th anniversary section that features:
- an English-language version (if only more US companies were similarly bilingual!)
- a nonverbal video (thundering music, no words--makes sense for a global company)
- cool historical art like the images shown here (though the timeline navigation is a little clunky)
Here in the US, the year 1665 was notable for a visit from a British royal retinue, which demanded that the colonies pledge allegiance to the King. Plymouth (then a colony), Connecticut, and Rhode Island did so; Massachusetts refused. I knew there was a reason I love MA. Anyhow, here at CorporateHistory.net, we look forward to following Saint-Gobain's history site into its anniversary year, and we wish everyone a happy, historic 2015!
