PABCO Building Products, LLC

Why Work Here?

The test of our company's values is not what is written or said, but by the actions and decisions made every day.

The divisions under PABCO Building Products, LLC manufactures gypsum wallboard products and asphalt roof shingles for the building industry. We have the product to serve your needs. PABCO Gypsum began manufacturing gypsum board after its 1972 acquisition of an idle gypsum plant Newark, California that was built in 1955. Five years later, PABCO expanded its gypsum manufacturing capabilities with the acquisition of a Johns-Manville gypsum plant and quarry north of Las Vegas, Nevada. The acquisitions continue with the purchase of Quiet Rock in 2013, which brought the world's first sound reducing drywall panel into the PABCO family. Our complete line of gypsum products is used in virtually all types of construction from residential to high-rise structures. PABCO Paper joined the PABCO family in 1984. The plant however, began making paper in 1912, over one hundred years ago as Southern Board and Paper Mills in the industrial city of Vernon, California, southeast of Los Angeles. In the 1920's it became a division of Fiberboard Products and sold again in 1977 to Pacific Coast Packaging Company. Today in our historic building, PABCO paper turns pre-and post consumer recycled content into new paper products used as gypsum board facing and backing paper, packaging paper for bakery boxes and other paper goods. PABCO Roofing Products got its start as another acquisition of idle plants. The 1984 roofing products acquisitions included a plant in Richmond, California, whose production dated back to before WWI and a Tacoma, Washington plant dating back to 1955. Both plants were operated and eventually made idle by the CertainTeed Corporation. Within 24 hours of the acquisition, the Tacoma facility was back online producing shingles. We made the swtich from organic felts to fiberglass core to laminated shingles. Today the Tacoma plant produces 10 different lines of asphalt shingles including our patented Cascade shingle.
