NCI Building Systems, which recently merged with Ply Gem Building Products, will operate as Cornerstone Building Brands, effective May 24, 2019, according to a news release. Cornerstone Building Brands makes and sells windows, vinyl siding, insulated metal panels, metal roofing and wall systems, and metal accessories.

The Cornerstone Building Brands name represents a “unified commitment to business transformation that will drive future growth and effectively serve customers and communities across North America,” according to the news release. The term Cornerstone “emphasizes the essential role the company’s products and solutions play in residential and commercial projects.”

"We are dedicated to our customers and well positioned to lead the residential and commercial markets as Cornerstone Building Brands, and to make positive contributions to the places where people live, work, and play," said James S. Metcalf, chairman of the board and CEO. "Through continued operational excellence and innovation, Cornerstone Building Brands is creating industry solutions that will become the cornerstone of countless communities. Our all-encompassing transformation will drive sales, efficiencies, customer satisfaction and enhance employee and community support."

The company said it is also dedicated to implementing and executing several community-focused programs including the Home for Good project, a campaign that will continue to serve as a key corporate initiative and has helped build and remodel more than 500 homes in 90 communities across the United States since 2016.

NCI Building Systems and Ply Gem first entered an agreement to combine in a stock-for-stock merger on July 17, 2018. The merger was completed on November 19, 2018 with each entity preserving its existing established brands. The new Cornerstone Building Brands is headquartered in Cary, N.C., but upon merging the combined company said it would continue to have a significant presence in Houston, Texas, the previous headquarters of NCI Building Systems.
