History    
     

New NGC, Inc., was formed in 1993 to focus on the core business of producing, marketing, and selling gypsum wallboard and interior finishing products. Part of the purchase was the name National Gypsum Company. The company became privately held in 1995.

The original National Gypsum was founded in 1925 by Melvin H. Baker, Joseph F. Haggerty, and Clarence E. Williams, who developed a process to make gypsum wallboard lighter and more flexible and cause the gypsum to adhere to the paper backing. Their product was what we know as modern wallboard.

 

Since becoming a private company, New NGC has invested over $1 billion in the business. That investment has included new plants, equipment, and technology, and has created the industry leader for service, quality, and innovation. One of these investments was the acquisition of its PermaBase cement board business in 1998.
