About USG Boral


Company Overview


We believe that we can change the way buildings are designed and built.  

People living, working, shopping, learning and being taken care of need buildings that are safe, healthy, comfortable and beautiful.  Architects and construction companies need more efficient (safer, faster, less costly) ways to build.  Building owners need better running buildings with lower operating costs.  Everyone is more sensitive to sustainable construction to address the global environmental challenges.  

At USG Boral, we are committed to developing solutions for walls and ceilings that answer these needs across Asia Pacific and the Middle East.


The best innovations start with a purpose – a focus on what is needed and how it will benefit the industry. At USG Boral, our mission is to deliver innovation that helps our customers work smarter, do more and build better. 

Through an ever-growing portfolio of groundbreaking products backed by unparalleled service at USG Boral, we empower our customers to build their business – much the same way great cities and communities are built. And we’ve done so through investing in purposeful innovation, expanding into different markets and constantly searching for ways to increase performance and productivity.

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, USG Boral has sales offices and manufacturing facilities established throughout Asia, Australia and the Middle East to provide local expertise and support to an extensive distribution and sales network that has been operating for more than 25 years. Main brand names include: USG Boral, Sheetrock®, Elephant, Jayaboard, Fiberock®, Durock®, and Donn® DX®, the world’s most widely specified and installed ceiling suspension system.



At USG Boral, we are convinced that safety is paramount to all we do.  Being safe means zero harm – nobody getting hurt doing business for us or with us.  It is the prerequisite to performance.  It protects people, making them confident in working for us and with us.  It promotes discipline in what we do, because the only way to be safe is to be focused and to do the right things.  It means not taking any shortcuts.  It promotes individual engagement toward improving whatever we do.


When it comes to building, it’s more than just working with products that you can trust. It’s working with people whom you can trust too. That’s why when you work with USG Boral, you’ll soon realize our word is as rock-solid as our products. Being open, honest, respectful and authentic in all our dealings isn’t just good business. It’s a cornerstone of how we do business. 


USG Boral is built from an extensive history of innovation that includes more than 1,300 patents for industry-leading products. It’s this culture of innovation that drives us to constantly strive for new and better ways to serve our customers, while encouraging creativity and flexibility in everything we do.


USG Boral understands that when it comes to your work, you want the best possible results in the most efficient time possible. That is why we remain ambitious and disciplined in our pursuit of the highest standards of quality, efficiency and service. It’s about always improving, thinking outside-the-box and always striving to deliver you the results that you need, in the time you need it.


Construction involves many parties from the manufacture and supply of building materials to the application of those materials on the job.  Collaboration is critical to improving the way buildings are built. USG Boral works with our partners, stakeholders and other businesses to share best practices and find new ways to improve performance. It’s about opening new doors and being open to new ideas. Ensuring our customers have the best, most innovative products available. For today, tomorrow and well into the future.

History of USG Boral


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. 

Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Boral has been a leader in global building products and construction materials since 2000. With leading positions in Cement & Construction Materials in Australia, Plasterboard in Australia and Asia, and Cladding and Roof Tiles in the USA, Boral produces and distributes a broad range of materials and products including quarry products, cement, fly ash, premix concrete, asphalt, clay bricks, clay and concrete roof tiles, concrete masonry products, plasterboard and timber. 

Since USG Corporation and Boral Limited first announced this exciting joint venture, the difference can already be felt throughout the markets they serve. From Asia to Australia to the Middle East, USG Boral is enabling builders and contractors alike to build faster and build better for a greater tomorrow.
