USG Corporation (NYSE: USG), a leading building products company, was named Innovator of the Year today by The Executives’ Club of Chicago. The award, which is given to a company whose new product, service, process or business model has resulted in organic growth and measurable economic benefit to the region, was presented to USG for its development of USG Durock™ Brand EcoCap™ Self-Leveling Underlayment, a product that offers a significant reduction in several environmental impacts.
