CGC Inc. is a leading marketer, manufacturer and distributor of
gypsum wallboard products, interior finishing materials and
suspended acoustical ceilings in Canada. CGC began in Nova Scotia,
Canada in 1907. It was first known as Canadian Gypsum Company and
concerned itself primarily with the quarrying and exportation of
gypsum rock to the United States.
Today, after decades of product development and market
expansion, CGC is recognized as a key player in Canada's dynamic
building materials industry, supplying innovative wall and ceiling
products to the new construction and repair and remodel markets of
the residential, commercial and institutional sectors. The company
also supplies materials for industrial uses. These include plasters
and cements for art and casting markets, gypsum fillers for the
chemical and plastics industry, agricultural gypsum, and mineral
fibre products for industrial insulation. CGC operates three mines,
five plants and several distribution and customer service centres
across the country.
CGC benefits from global affiliations and state-of-the-art
research and development facilities through its parent company USG Corporation, the
leading drywall manufacturer in North America and a world leader in
suspended acoustical ceilings. USG has manufacturing, sales and
distribution facilities in several international markets, and its
products are sold throughout the world.
