Imagine a company capable of providing the modern building materials needed to build a community, even the bridges and highways to get you there. You have just imagined Oldcastle. Surprised? We are North America’s largest manufacturer of building products. Yet we do more than manufacture products. We’re partnering with national accounts, design-build firms and construction professionals to simplify the way buildings become. So why has no one done this before? Simple, no one else can. Oldcastle has the largest manufacturing footprint, the greatest product breadth, and we are not in a category that we do not lead. If you are looking to simplify the construction process—welcome to Oldcastle.

Our operating companies retain their local 

identity, which allows them to utilize area market position while leveraging the 

technology, best practices, talent pool, purchasing power and financial resources 

of a larger organization. Oldcastle Materials has one of the best safety records in 

the industry and provides comprehensive training. Our employees have many 

exciting opportunities available to them in a wide variety of fields throughout the 

entire Oldcastle Materials Group of companies.

Company outlook

Finally there is one integrated system where all the elements necessary to close the 

building envelope are engineered to work together seamlessly. Goodbye individual 

components. Instead, we design, engineer, test and manufacture curtain wall, windows, 

storefronts, skylights and glass as one seamlessly integrated unit.

Why do we do it? 

Everyone in the design and construction chain is asking for it—from visionary architects 

to owners, engineers, consultants and construction managers. So what are they looking 

for? Better buildings, a simplified process, less risk and fewer delays. And that is exactly 

what we’ve done. The future of the building envelope is here.

Company Culture

Corporate meetings infused with political discussions on divisive issues. Expression of contrary opinions regarding product development, marketing, quality control is discouraged.

Support from management

While workloads are reasonable, support and direction from management is sporadic. Management often seems more interested in new product development and corresponding marketing strategies over supporting core products with careful quality control and adequate marketing efforts.
