SAINT GOBAIN GYPROC - Leading Interior Building Solutions Group

In December 2005, Saint-Gobain purchased BPB Gypsum, and the company was given a choice of names that are used by similar activities in the umbrella company’s portfolio. The local team chose Gyproc (over Rigips, Plako, British Gypsum and Certainteed) because it emphasises the gypsum element used in the company’s products, and echoes the solid nature of a rock.

In early 2007, Gyproc acquired Tylon Holdings, now known as Saint-Gobain Weber, and 18 months later it purchased Owens Corning, the insulation manufacturer now known as Saint-Gobain Isover. These two businesses were uncoupled from Gyproc in 2008, and all three companies now operate as divisions of Saint-Gobain Construction Products inSouth Africa. They collaborate in bringing innovative through-the-wall lightweight construction systems to the local market.

The high demand for RhinoLite produced in the company’s Germiston plant led to the commissioning of a plasters plant inCape Townin 2009. This plant produces RhinoLite Natural Plus, a product that has been received with great success by the coastal markets.

2009 also saw Gyproc and Donn celebrate special anniversaries: Donn marked 40 years of producing steel frame products, and Gyproc, marked its 80th year in business.

As leaders in building innovation, the construction industry can look forward to 12 new innovations from Gyproc in 2012.
