USG Corporation is a leading manufacturer of building supplies and innovative solutions across North America, with 38 plants and several offices in the United States. We were founded in 1902 when about 20 gypsum rock and plaster manufacturing companies merged to consolidate their resources and form the United States Gypsum Company, which ultimately became USG Corporation.
Our products have enabled the built environment as we know it today, allowing buildings to be safer, taller and more sustainable. Our iconic Sheetrock® brand drywall is among the most well-known building supplies around the world. Our products are all around you – in your walls, ceilings, floors and roof. We’re an important part of homes, offices, schools, hospitals and all the spaces where we live, work and play. You can find our products in some of our country’s most significant buildings, like:
Daytona International Speedway®, an American icon of entertainment and achievement
One Word Trade Center in New York City, the tallest building in the U.S. at 105 stories and a powerful tribute to our country’s resiliency
The Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, which gives our Olympic and Paralympic athletes access to the highest-quality training to fulfill their dreams
We employ around 6,750 people in North America and take our commitment to our employees very seriously. On average, our plants operate 16 times safer than the industry, and in 2017, the Detroit Free Press named USG one of its “Top Workplaces” for the fourth year in a row.
Our Alabaster quarry produces gypsum rock, an essential raw material used in a long, wide-ranging list of products from drywall and cement to fertilizers, food and much more. The Alabaster quarry not only supports USG’s other Michigan plants in Detroit and Otsego, it supplies gypsum to dozens of other manufacturers across the state. Our quarry is integral to thousands of jobs in Michigan construction trades, agriculture, food processing and more.
