In October 2013, an announcement was made that would forever change the landscape of the building industry in Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Two major companies—USG Corporation and Boral Limited—would embark on an exciting joint venture.
The name of this joint venture: USG Boral Building Products. This was the perfect marriage of a leading manufacturing and distribution network across Asia Pacific and a technology leader with world-class innovation capacity.
For more than 110 years, the USG Corporation has been a leader in producing innovative products and systems that build the environments in which we live, work and play. From USG Sheetrock® Brand Gypsum Panels in the early 1900s, Fire Resistant (Type X) Gypsum Panels in the 1940s, Lightweight Metal Framing and Shaft Wall Systems in the 1960s, and USG Durock® and Fiberock® Brand Panels in the 1980s and 1990s to the USG Sheetrock® Brand UltraLight Gypsum Panels of today, these USG products have shown themselves to be leaders in moving the residential and commercial construction industry forward.
