Message from our Chairman, President & CEO Tom Nelson

We’re breaking ground at National Gypsum Company with the publication of Building Futures, our corporate sustainability report. Long a part of our overall business strategy, sustainability practices have evolved with our company. I want others to see National Gypsum as a company going beyond compliance and building a better future for our associates, our customers, our owners, the communities where we work and the environment.


Our Values

When you visit our plants and offices, just ask our associates what makes National Gypsum different. You’ll hear the same thing every time: It’s the core values we bring to work every day.

  • Customer satisfaction as our priority.
  • Honesty, integrity, fairness, and respect.
  • Communication and openness.
  • Teamwork, innovation, and continuous improvement.
  • Hold ourselves and each other accountable.
  • Work safe, work hard, have fun.

"Safety for ourselves and our teammates comes before productivity, before quality and service. That’s what it means to make safety our priority."

John Corsi, VP, Manufacturing Operations and Engineering

Our Focus

Putting our values into action is a responsibility shared by all associates as part of our One Team philosophy. We invest in several key sustainability areas:
