Gypsum wallboard is a key component in the construction of walls and ceilings in residential and commercial buildings. Eagle Materials' gypsum wallboard division, American Gypsum Company, currently operates four manufacturing facilities in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and South Carolina. A companion facility in New Mexico has been idled awaiting recovery in the Arizona and Southern California construction markets. With annual wallboard production capacity of nearly 4 billion square feet, Eagle is the nation's fifth largest wallboard producer.
Much of American Gypsum's competitive advantage lies in its access to Republic Paperboard facing paper, in its modern efficient dryers and its energy efficient calciners. In addition, the company has improved the strength, reduced the weight, and improved the quality of its gypsum wallboard, while at the same time reducing the amount of waste generated. Because of attention to detail and focus on continuously improving the low-cost production of gypsum wallboard, American Gypsum has been able to remain profitable through cycles.
