Creating ourselves a better and easier life should be a goal for all of us and if we can help others to achieve the same, we should always to the best we can. USG Corporation, a leading company in building products, has just announced a four-year sponsorship to U.S. Olympic Team, U.S. Paralympic Team and also Canadian Olympic Team to make it easier for them to concentrate on the result and worry less about things that shouldn't matter on their way to the top.
USG's core values include efficiency, quality, innovation and the company feels that they are all also reflected in the Olympic and Paralympic Movements, and as such making the deal between them a perfect match.
“We are focused on things that matter to our customers: product innovations, expansion into key international markets, and making it easier to do business with us." said Chairman, President and CEO James S. Metcalf. He also added that "Olympic and Paralympic athletes are known for high performance, perseverance and a commitment to excellence – principles that align closely with USG’s own values. We are proud to support the athletes who devote their lives to achieving greatness. It inspires us to do the same as we embark on the next phase of our company’s growth.”
