James Hardie Industries NV (JHINV) was created in December 2001, after shareholders voted to accept a unanimous recommendation by the board of James Hardie Industries Limited (JHIL) to restructure the company and establish a new parent company (JHINV) incorporated in the Netherlands.
The new structure is designed to position the company for further international growth, and generate higher returns for shareholders than were possible under the previous structure. James Hardie Industries NV now heads the James Hardie group of companies, with operations around the world.
