Is Forever Board the future of drywall?

leave a comment »



Ronald J. Voit sees gypsum boards used everywhere in construction as drywall building material.

But he remains undaunted about bringing a mold-resistant alternative called Forever Board to the market.

“It’s just a matter of getting everybody familiar with the product,” Voit said of his invention.

Buffalo is the hub for his hopes. A few years ago, Voit bought a vacant factory near the Buffalo River in South Buffalo and moved in production equipment he acquired from a defunct plant in Ohio.

Now Voit has launched manufacturing, aiming to get his product used in commercial and residential projects. Voit said he uses a proprietary process to strengthen the chemical bonds in production of his magnesium oxide boards. “I use the Coca-Cola, Kentucky Fried Chicken theory: Nobody knows my secret recipe, not even my investors,” he said.
