We are the leading North American distributor of wallboard and suspended ceilings systems. Our product offering of wallboard, suspended ceilings systems, or ceilings, and complementary interior construction products is designed to provide a comprehensive solution for our core customer, the interior contractor who installs these products in commercial and residential buildings. Since our founding in 1971, we have grown our business from a single location to over 185 branches across 41 states through a combination of both organic growth and acquisitions. Underpinning that growth is our entrepreneurial culture, which both enables us to drive organic growth by delivering outstanding customer service and makes us an attractive acquirer for smaller distributors whose owners are seeking liquidity. Over time, we have increased our market share in the distribution of wallboard and ceilings, which management currently estimates is 13% for wallboard, based on volume produced in the United States and Canada, and 14% for ceilings, based on sales dollars in North America.
