CSR Gyprock celebrates 70 years!
CSR Gyprock is celebrating 70 years of innovation and performance as Australia’s leading plasterboard manufacturer putting them at the forefront of the Australian building market.
It all begun with the first paper-faced plasterboard in 1947 and has expanded to their commitment to new technology and development. CSR Gyprock has continued its devotion to evolving its product range to meet the needs of the ever-changing industry.
“2017 is a very special year for CSR Gyprock and marks a time of reflection as we look back on many years of achievements in the Australian building industry,” says Gyprock general manager Najwa Khoury.
“We have continued to invest in new technology to meet the needs of the building trade, which is reflected in the widespread use of Gyprock plasterboard across a number of large-scale projects – such as the restoration of the Sydney Opera House, the Melbourne Recital Hall and more recently, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and Perth Stadium.”
Many Australian buildings feature CSR Gyprock which is a true testament to the company’s history and reputation among the industry.
“Our longstanding history in the industry shows the importance placed on the relationships we have cultivated with our customers and the professionalism, performance and reliability they have come to associate with the Gyprock brand,” says Najwa.
Commonly known as a plasterboard pioneer, CSR Gyprock led the industry in 1968 with its brand new product GB175 or as it’s known today as the Base Coat 45. A couple of decades later they followed it up with its Perforated and Flexible plasterboards and Wet Area Base Coat.
Gyprock has always been environmentally conscious and has committed to sustainable building practises which in-turn has driven standards higher. Notably, in 2008, Gyprock launched the first Australian-made plasterboard to be certified by Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA), the original EC08 with ReCore technology.
Gyprock will continue to move towards more efficiency across installation, delivery and energy usage as it continues to provide solutions for the industry.
In 2017, it decided to release the Red Book which details Gyprock’s latest products and solutions which is also supported by other CSR brands like Cemintel, Ceilector, Bradford, Hebel and AFS.
Najwa says that she is incredibly proud of all the efforts put into making the company a successful one.
“CSR Gyprock is proud of its 70 year history in the Australian building industry, documented by the consistent innovation among our product range and by our longstanding relationships with plasterers, builders, architects and designers,” says Najwa.
“As the past 70 years has shown, we are well positioned to meet the challenges and needs of the Australian building and construction industry and look forward to supporting the building trade for the next 70 years and beyond.”
