Bestwall Gypsum Company

The Bestwall Gypsum Company originated from a single product – the Bestwall gypsum board – that was later purchased by CertainTeed in 1928. Due to its success in the late 1950’s, a branched-off company came to life under the name Bestwall Gypsum Company. The company expanded its line of construction materials to spackling and compound products. In 1965, Bestwall Gypsum was acquired by Georgia-Pacific Corporation. The poisonous mineral known as asbestos was included in the manufacturing process of some of the construction materials Bestwall Gypsum produced and distributed. This went on until the year 1977 when the negative effects of asbestos use were becoming known more and more.
