Formerly Lafarge Gypsum, Continental Building Products is a North American leader in wallboard and joint compound materials. Lafarge entered the drywall market in the 1990s and began embracing synthetic gypsum as a primary raw material near the decade’s end, as synthetic gypsum offered a new level of product consistency and environmental sustainability.
In 2013, Lafarge Gypsum transformed into its own company – Continental Building Products, a name that honors their renewed focus on North America. Continental Building Products combine operational excellence, sustainable practices and personalized service to deliver solutions as straightforward as they are sincere, as proactive as they are flexible and as fast as they are safe.
