Commissioners Approve Industrial Revenue Bonds for Local Company


Bernalillo County commissioners have approved up to $22 million in taxable industrial revenue bonds (IRBs) for American Gypsum Company in the northern part of the county.

The company will use the industrial revenue bonds to make improvements and modernize its plant near Jefferson and Paso del Norte.

The Dallas-based company produces some 430 million square feet of wallboard annually using premium quality gypsum.
“Bernalillo County always works diligently to attract new business, but it’s just as important to back existing companies,” says Commissioner Debbie O’Malley.  “American Gypsum has been a part of the county skyline for more than 35 years and it’s time for an upgrade.”

Industrial revenue bonds can be taxed or untaxed to be used for improvements and expansion within the county.  Industrial revenue bonds are not funded or repaid with taxpayer money.

The IRBs were approved by commissioners on a 5 to 0 vote.
