Our products are supplied to more than 45 countries through 4 regional manufacturing plants via a wide network of sales and technical offices and distributors. Our product range is trusted for use in homes, offices, hospitals, schools, universities, cinemas, and retail spaces, as well as in many of the world’s most iconic projects.

Our mission is to deliver innovation that helps you work smarter, do more, and build better. Architects and construction companies need safer, faster, and less costly ways to build. Building owners need better- running buildings with lower operating costs. And the need for sustainable construction to address global environmental challenges is growing fast.

INNOVATION AND SUPPORT YOU CAN TRUST

USG Middle East’s ever-growing portfolio of groundbreaking products and end-to-end solutions is backed by unparalleled quality service. With an extensive distribution and sales network operating for more than
25 years across the MENA Region, our dedicated teams provide local expertise and high levels of support in finding the right solutions for your needs. USG Middle East’s main product categories are:

Ceilings

With over 50 years of experience, we are a premier acoustic panel and specialty ceilings innovator that also enhances overall aesthetics. Our portfolio includes acoustical, gypsum tile, metal, and specialty ceilings as well as both standard and seismically rated suspension systems.

Plasterboards

Used to make interior walls and ceilings, our plasterboards are the result of over 100 years of scientific experimentation and innovation success. Cleaner, faster and easily handled by fewer workers, we have installed more than 725 million square meters of plasterboards worldwide.

Substrates

Compared to traditional wet wall solutions, our substrates are lightweight (thereby reducing installation costs and speeds up construction) and versatile - making it ideal for unique building designs as they are able to be curved and applied on different finishes including paint, tile, stone and texture.

Metal framing

Our range of metal components and profiles allows construction of drywalls and ceilings to be done faster, more accurately and cleaner than conventional methods. Also, this innovative framing can be engineered to suit a job site’s requirements while achieving global construction standards.

Interior finishes

Used for jointing, bonding, skimming, and creating textured finishes for building interiors. We boast a broad range of products for compounds, along with our extensive capability to formulate solutions according to your needs.

INNOVATION CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE

Behind every build is a place dedicated to innovation staffed by leading experts in the fields of material science, engineering (chemical, mechanical and civil), chemistry (physical, inorganic and analytical), and architecture.

It’s their expertise and commitment to the most stringent manufacturing processes at our Research and Development Centre as well as Products and Systems Testing Center in Libertyville USA, Thailand and Australia that enables us to customize our products and solutions according to your market needs and regulations, whilst setting the standard for industry innovation.
