Pierre-Andre de Chalendar, the chief executive officer of Saint-Gobain, said the company will have a better year in 2010 than 2009. Chalendar predicts that the stimulus packages in China, the U.S. and Europe will boost sales at the French building materials group. Chalendar implemented a cost-savings plan this year and plans to hold off on any acquisitions in 2009.
