CertainTeed hiring after drywall ruling

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — CertainTeed has come out in support of the federal Western Economic Diversification office’s Drywall Support Program, following on the resolution of CertainTeed’s anti-dumping complaint against U.S. gypsum manufacturers. The Canadian International Trade Tribunal agreed earlier this year with the substance of CertainTeed’s complaint, but sought to inoculate rebuilding efforts around Fort McMurray from the effects of tariffs. “Since the government’s ruling for the imposition of duties on US imports, we have increased hiring at our Western plants and re-established shifts which were cut over recent years due to domestic share loss,” said CertainTeed GM Matt Walker.
