SHEETROCK® Wins Innovation Award


USG Boral proudly accepts Innovation Award for SHEETROCK®

USG Boral was presented with the Innovation of the Year Award at the recent Home Timber and Hardware Group Australian National Conference. The Award was determined on the votes from independent store owners which made it even more pleasing for the company.

The Home Timber and Hardware independent store owners voted for SHEETROCK® as their preferred innovation amongst a field of nine very worthy entries.  Innovation was a big theme during the conference, held this year on the Gold Coast and The Innovation Zone was a popular destination for conference delegates.

USG Boral National Hardware Manager Luke Holman said it was a real coup for the company to receive the award from a major distributor of the product, especially against such high quality competition. 

“We are a company of firsts and our innovation is one of the main ways we differentiate ourselves from our competitors,” Luke said. “This is another important endorsement for our brand.”

SHEETROCK® is significantly lighter than USG Boral standard plasterboard and builders and contractors can quickly see the benefits to their productivity. It can help reduce fatigue,  load the job quicker, make installation faster and as a consequence, finish it sooner which can help achieve  real cost savings. Easy score and snap also means reduced mess and waste.

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

USG Boral continues to innovate, inspired by customers' needs and a vision of what is possible to support them in a job well done.
