G-P To Expand Gypsum Production

November 7, 2005

The board of Georgia-Pacific has approved capital funding of more than $100 million for the expansion of its Savannah, GA gypsum facility. This expansion, along with other modernization programs across the company's gypsum division, will support the growing, proprietary Dens product lines as well as its overall ToughRock gypsum business. The project will include improvements to the gypsum rock handling system, a new mill and related systems and a new wallboard manufacturing line. Capacity of the new wallboard line is approximately 650 million square feet of 1/2-inch wallboard, which will be used to help meet growing demand in the region in both the retail and commercial markets. The project, which will more than double production at the facility, is expected to be completed in early 2007.
