Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Completes Integration with Temple-Inland Building Products

Thanks to Georgia-Pacific LLC’s acquisition of Temple-Inland Building Products, its Georgia-Pacific Gypsum division is bigger - but more importantly, better.

With integration of two of the industry’s most experienced building materials manufacturers now complete, a larger and even more experienced team of employees is offering customers a broader range of products, more convenient distribution and - soon -- new systems designed to improve customer service.

Among the highlights of the “new” Georgia-Pacific Gypsum are:

• More Products- The company’s enhanced portfolio of products offers customers more UL approved fire-rated assemblies; a growing family of lightweight products; the addition of paper-faced sheathing, shaftliner and soffit boards to the ToughRock® family; and wider availability of the trusted Dens® line of fiberglass mat gypsum panels.

• More Convenient Distribution - With the addition of high-quality assets, we’ve added 40 percent more capacity and a wider geographic footprint, giving customers added peace of mind when placing an order for any of the numerous products in the Dens and ToughRock product families.

• Improved Customer Service - By adding 350 talented employees, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum now has an experienced and trusted 2,000-person workforce determined to make doing business with the company easier than ever.

“Georgia-Pacific Gypsum is now bigger and better than ever, offering customers products, distribution and service unparalleled in the industry,” said Mike McCoy, vice president of marketing for Georgia-Pacific Gypsum. “We are delighted with the swift integration of Temple-Inland Building Products’ talented people, high-quality plants and products, allowing us to further optimize the customer experience.”

Georgia-Pacific completed its $710 million acquisition of Temple-Inland Building Products assets from International Paper Co. in July 2013. The purchase included facilities that manufacture the following building materials: fiberboard, gypsum products, lumber, medium density fiberboard (MDF) and particleboard.

Georgia-Pacific Gypsum will display its expanded product line in Booth 315 at the AWCI Convention & INTEX Expo, taking place in Las Vegas, March 30 to April 3.
Headquartered at Atlanta, Georgia-Pacific is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of building products, tissue, packaging, paper, cellulose and related chemicals. The company employs nearly 35,000 people worldwide.
