A Family of Companies
PABCO Roofing Products, along with PABCO® Paper and PABCO® Gypsum Products, are divisions of PABCO® Building Products LLC servicing the building product manufacturing industry in the United States and Canada. For over 65 years, PABCO Building Products has been building a family of companies, a culture of caring and creativity, trusted partner and customer relationships. PABCO Building Products is committed to helping people build something special that lasts—whether relationships, structures, or businesses.
In addition to asphalt shingle products, PABCO Building Products offers a broad portfolio of premium gypsum through itsPABCO® Gypsum Division. PABCO® Paper is a 100% recycled content paper mill that manufactures the gypsum liners for PABCO Gypsum and produces liner board and chip paper grades.
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 Las Vegas facility was expanded and modernized in 1998 and again in 2005; and Newark was updated in 2009. The acquisitions continue with the purchase of QuietRock® 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. After sitting idle for several years, the plant was acquired and upgraded to enable production of high quality paper initially for our gypsum board products. 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 has developed a reputation of exceptional people and remarkable products since our inception in 1984. The plant has been modernized throughout the years, and we are recognized for our leadership in environmentally responsible manufacturing practices and products. We currently offer a full line of asphalt shingles - from traditional 3-tab, to best-in-class laminated, to our top-of-line Signature Cut open-tooth laminated shingles. Our unique Cascade™ diamond-shaped shingle has an exclusive U.S. patented design and is often specified on historic homes and buildings. PABCO® shingles with our exclusive Algae Defender® technology help to protect roofs from unsightly black stains caused by algae.
