American Building Components’ Parent Company, NCI Building Systems, Merges with Residential and Renovation Construction Leader, Ply Gem

American Building Components’ (ABC’s) parent company, NCI Building Systems (NCI) and Ply Gem Parent, LLC (Ply Gem) announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement Tuesday, July 17, 2018.

As a leading manufacturer of exterior building products—including the metal roof and wall panels, trim and accessories produced by ABC—NCI is excited about incorporating Ply Gem’s commercial and residential new construction and repair & remodel solutions into the building solutions portfolio we can offer our customers.

Joint Synergies and Strength

The combined Company will leverage shared strengths and best-in-class manufacturing capabilities to become a one-stop solution for exterior building envelope needs. This market-leading combination provides an improved ability to deliver a more diverse product portfolio across multiple end-markets, enhanced product innovation and continuous improvement opportunities, as well as manufacturing, procurement and near-term cost synergies. As a result, ABC customers will be able to attain a wider variety of high-quality building products and solutions from their trusted ABC teams while continuing to benefit from our commitment to providing exceptional customer experiences every step of the way.

Customer and Business Impact

ABC will continue to operate in the same way we do today during and after the merger transaction, and you can continue to work with your existing ABC contacts as you have always done. This includes ordering online anytime via Because both companies traditionally serve different end-markets, ABC expects no changes to our operations as a result of the merger.

Thank you for your continued partnership. Our priority is to continue to provide the high-quality products and service you expect, and our team is excited about the opportunity this change has to improve upon those expectations and better support your businesses.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me or a member of our ABC leadership team.
