CGC To Build Alberta Plant

CGC Inc., the Canadian division of USG Corporation, plans to build a state-of-the-art wallboard manufacturing plant in Wheatland County, AB. This $210 million investment reinforces the company's commitment to the Canadian market and will allow it to better serve its customers in Alberta and the west. “Our customers in western Canada have said they want a more efficient way to access our CGC wallboard products they've been buying for over 100 years. Shipping our products from eastern Canadian or American manufacturing plants no longer meets their growing demand,” says Chris Griffin, president and CEO of USG Corporation. Construction on the plant is projected to begin in 2023. The build is a result of a collaboration between CGC, Wheatland County, the government of Alberta, and Invest Alberta Corporation to fuel regional economic development.
