Drywall manufacturer United States Gypsum Co. celebrated its 100th anniversary on May 24. To mark the occasion, company plants, distribution facilities and offices throughout the country, as well as USG Corp. subsidiaries, hosted special events for employees, retirees and customers.

In Chicago, a portion of Franklin St. near the company's headquarters will be renamed USG Way by proclamation of the Chicago City Council.

"This is truly a special day for United States Gypsum," said William C. Foote, company chairman, president and CEO. "Not too many businesses are successful enough to last for 100 years."
