Our all-encompassing transformation will drive sales, efficiencies, customer satisfaction and enhance employee and community support."

Offering a comprehensive product portfolio that will continue to go to market through their existing brand names, Cornerstone Building Brands said it is the trusted leader in windows, vinyl siding, insulated metal panels, metal roofing and wall systems and metal accessories, serving as a one-stop shop for customers.

With its manufacturing facilities strategically located across North America, Cornerstone Building Brands brings a commitment to advanced manufacturing, innovation and research and development, the company said in a release.

"The combined strength and balance of our residential and commercial sectors uniquely positions us to lead the market," adds Metcalf.  "We are dedicated to delivering an unmatched portfolio of products and look forward to the positive impact Cornerstone Building Brands will have not only on our customers but also in the fabric of the communities we call home."
