Georgia Pacific

Georgia Pacific - Savannah Port Journal

In 2008, Georgia Pacific completed a $100 million upgrade to its wallboard facility that improved their handling of gypsum rock shipped to the facility, added a new wallboard manufacturing line, and a new state-of-the-art loading system.

Gypsum is a mineral compound more technically know as calcium sulphate dihydroxide, or sulphate of lime. It is used for construction, repair and remodeling in wallboard and other products like fire door components, plaster, sheathing, tile backer, roof board and joint systems.
