Where To Find USG Boral Products In South East Queensland
When it comes to sourcing the very best materials for your new or existing home, then USG Boral products are often at the forefront of renovators minds.
Already individually recognised as global heavyweights, in October 2013 Boral Limited and the USG Corporation joined forces to become USG Boral Building Products - so what do they supply, and why are they regarded as world leaders within the construction sector?
The USG Boral Story
With the primary brand names behind USG Boral including Sheetrock, Elephant, Jayaboard, Fiberock and Durock, USG Boral has well established sales offices and manufacturing facilities all throughout Asia, Australia and the Middle East. While the company headquarters can be found in Malaysia, their extensive distribution network has allowed for localised expertise.
The combination of Boral Limited and the USG Corporation has thus far provided consumers around the world with state of the art materials that were built to last. While it may seem like a big claim, both entities had already solidified their reputations before the merger.
All the way back in 1901, 30 gypsum and plaster companies merged to form the United States Gypsum Company - or USG - resulting in the creation of the first nationwide gypsum company in the United States. The new company combined the operations of 37 mining and calcining plants producing agricultural and construction plaster, and quickly cemented their status as market leaders for gypsum panels, shaft wall systems and lightweight metal framing in the United States.
While considerably “younger” in comparison, Boral Limited was founded right here in Australia in 1946 as a bitumen and oil refinery. In the late 1960’s, the company changed direction into the production of building materials, and now manufactures a huge range of products such as quarry products, cement, fly ash, premix concrete, asphalt, clay bricks, clay and concrete roof tiles, concrete masonry products, plasterboard and even timber.
In 2020, USG Boral’s status as a global market leader isn’t looking to change anytime soon. With around 3500 employees world wide, the company is a key manufacturer and supplier of gypsum-based wall and ceiling lining systems, mineral fibre acoustical ceiling systems, metal framing, joint compounds, high-performance panels and accessories throughout Asia, Australia and the Middle East.
