now uniquely positioned to provide you with:
- a convenient, one-stop shop for
exterior building needs
- a wider range of high-quality
exterior building products
- additional expertise that
supports the development of innovative products and solutions
With any merger transition comes significant milestones. We’re
excited to share that the combined company has outlined its shared purpose—one
that reflects the combination of strengths both NCI and Ply Gem bring to the
table. For an update on the new combined company (including the announcement of
its new name), please read the below letter from Chairman and CEO Jim Metcalf.
We are continuing to work toward leveraging the shared strengths
and best-in-class manufacturing capabilities of both legacy companies to

Dear Valued Customer,
I’m excited to share news with you today about the future of our company. In November 2018, Ply Gem Building Products and NCI Building Systems merged together to create a transformational company to service your needs. Today, we are the largest manufacturer of exterior building products in North America servicing both the residential and commercial markets and are uniquely positioned as a market leader.
For the past several months, our company’s leadership team has been working together to create a shared purpose that combines the strengths of both NCI and Ply Gem. The purpose is grounded in the belief that every building we create with our products and every part of that building, positively contributes to communities where people live, work and play. Our building solutions are the cornerstone of the communities we serve.
This is who we are. And with that purpose in mind, I’m proud to announce that the new name of our company is Cornerstone Building Brands. A cornerstone is the foundational part or principle upon which something greater is built. The name emphasizes the essential role our buildings play in communities throughout North America and strongly supports our vision for future growth.
The combined leadership team of Cornerstone Building Brands is passionate about offering a broad portfolio of products and solutions to meet your needs and is committed to efficient operations, best-in-class service, and product innovation. As we move forward, you can expect all our primary brands on the commercial and residential sides to remain and go to market using their existing names.
Our main focus is to exceed your expectations and leverage the unique strengths of our combined organization. We are committed to being the most reliable company in the building products industry and have prioritized delivering innovative products and services with first class customer service every day. We appreciate your business and continued support and look forward to growing our business together.
James S. Metcalf
Chairman and CEO
