USG, through its subsidiary L&W Supply Corporation, is also the nation's largest distributor of drywall and related building products. L&W serves the professional contractor through a network of more than 140 locations and strives to be their preferred source for all quality products and services they need to complete their projects â€” on time and on budget. USG has a rich history of innovation, with more than 1,100 patents granted for their industry-leading products. Most recently, their customers asked for lighter weight products and they responded by developing their award-winning ultra lightweight portfolio. Their culture of innovation â€” along with their commitment to all of their core values â€” drives us to constantly strive for new and better ways of serving their customers. USG has been committed to the safety of their employees, customers and the general public since 1902. They have developed and adhered to safety guidelines that exceed industry standards and regulations. In fact, 12 of their 34 U.S. manufacturing locations and three of their L&W Supply distribution facilities have applied and qualified for OSHA VPP Star status. To attain the Star designation, employees, management and OSHA work together to implement safety and health programs and processes that go beyond OSHA regulations to further protect employees and promote safe operations. Fewer than 2,500 worksites of the more than eight million in the U.S. have received the VPP Star designation. This ''safety first'' culture is what keeps their facilities more productive and it's why their employees are able to go home after every shift to see their families â€” many of whom work at USG for multiple generations. From the product formulations they choose, to the processes they employ, USG is committed to products that are designed, manufactured, distributed and used in a sustainable way and minimize overall environmental impact. And they have consistently led the industry in offering customers innovative products and services used in the construction of high-performing sustainable spaces. Their steadfast loyalty to the company's core business beliefs â€” safety, innovation, integrity, service, efficiency, diversity and quality â€” have helped us become the highly-regarded company they are today. USG's nearly 9,000 employees working in more than 30 countries are dedicated to helping their customers and partners achieve success. They are dedicated to the highest levels of customer satisfaction and quality in everything they do.
