An article published on this site entitled “Concerns raised by CSR Hebel Chinese imported AAC panel” raised questions about the origin and quality of some imported Hebel products.

The Institute has withdrawn the article because of inaccuracies pointed out by a manufacturer of Hebel products, CSR Building Products (NZ) Limited.

A statement by CSR Building Products (NZ) Limited appears below.
