USG Corporation and Boral Limited to Enter into Joint Venture

USG Corporation and Boral Limited announced that the Commission has granted clearance to USG Corporation (USG) and Boral Limited (Boral) to enter into a joint venture. The proposed joint venture relates to the two parties operations in Asia, India, the Middle East and Australasia for the supply of plasterboard, ceiling tiles and ancillary building products such as metal studs and tracks, metal ceiling grids and metal ceiling battens. The Commission found no significant overlap between USG and Boral in the plasterboard and ceiling tile markets, therefore focused its investigation on the supply of metal building products because the proposed joint venture would give USG Corporation an interest in Rondo Building Services Pty Limited. At present, both USG and Rondo supply a range of metal building products in New Zealand.
