We are a leading, vertically integrated manufacturer and distributor of exterior residential building products in the United States and Canada. We produce a comprehensive offering of exterior building products, including vinyl windows, vinyl siding, aluminum trim coil and aluminum and steel siding and accessories, which we produce at our 11 manufacturing facilities. We also sell complementary products that are manufactured by third parties, such as roofing materials, insulation, exterior doors, vinyl siding in a shake and scallop design and installation equipment and tools. We distribute these products primarily to professional contractors through our extensive dual-distribution network. Our dual-distribution network consists of over 120 company-operated supply centers, through which we sell directly to our contractor customers, and our direct sales channel, through which we sell to approximately 250 independent distributors and dealers, who then sell to their customers.
On October 13, 2010, we became an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of AMH Investment Holdings Corp, of which approximately 98% of the capital stock is owned by investment funds affiliated with Hellman & Friedman LLC ("H&F").
