USG Boral won the Innovation of the Year Award at the recent Home Timber and Hardware Group National Conference held this year on the Gold Coast. Innovation was a big theme during the conference with The Innovation Zone becoming a popular destination for conference delegates.

USG Boral proudly accepted the prestigious honour for its SHEETROCK product. The award was given on the basis of votes from independent store owners in the Home Timber and Hardware network who chose SHEETROCK as their preferred innovation amongst a field of nine very worthy entries.

USG Boral National Hardware Manager Luke Holman said it was a great achievement for the company to receive the award from a major distributor of the product, especially against such high quality competition. Being a pioneering company where innovation is a key differentiator, USG Boral views the award as another important endorsement for their brand.

SHEETROCK offers several productivity advantages to builders and contractors over USG Boral’s standard plasterboard including a significantly lighter construction that can help reduce fatigue, load the job quicker, make installation faster, and achieve faster finishes, resulting in real cost savings. Additionally, SHEETROCK allows easy score and snap, reducing mess and waste.

The Innovation of the Year Award from the Home Timber and Hardware Group acknowledges that SHEETROCK has taken plasterboard to the next level.
