USG Boral won three awards at the 16th Annual Global Gypsum Conference and Exhibition held recently in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Global Gypsum Conference is the largest and most established event in the gypsum industry. The awards are presented each year to recognise outstanding companies and products within the gypsum industry. Winners are chosen based on the opinion of a judging panel as well as public voting.
USG Boral was nominated in three different categories this year, including two nominations within the ‘Global Gypsum Plant of the Year’ category. The leading building materials supplier swept three out of six awards with ‘Global Gypsum Company of the Year’, ‘Global Gypsum Plant of the Year’, and ‘Global Gypsum Product of the Year’.
