The Allied Building Products Corporation was setup in Jersey City, N.J. more than half a century ago in 1950. The company was a roofing and custom sheet metal fabrication business. This firm started out servicing the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area with a work force of just five employees, a fleet that consisted of two small trucks and 700 square feet of office space, 5000 square feet of warehouse space and a dedication to establish a company that would be in business for years to come. That dedication has made Allied the successful leader it is today with  operations in more than 130 locations coast to coast with over one million square feet of warehouse and office space. Its modern corporate headquarters is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Today the Allied has a workforce of more than 3,000 dedicated individuals, from various fields and this work force consists of sales professionals, warehouse, dispatch personnel and equipment operators to product, marketing, credit and architectural managers. Allied maintains a modern, efficient fleet of more than 850 cars, trucks and tractor-trailers. All of these resources are effectively brought to bear in Allied's commitment to service.

Allied Building Products Corp. is a subsidiary of Oldcastle, Inc., the North American holding company of CRH Plc. Other than Allied, Oldcastle is mainly involved in manufacturing, and has major positions in the U.S. The products the company deals in include asphalt, aggregates, ready mix concrete, clay and concrete masonry products, under- and above-ground precast concrete products and custom-fabricated glass. CRH is one of the largest building material companies in the world with operations in Europe, America, Asia and Africa.

As part of their commitment to the industry, the company maintains relations with many large and small architectural firms. From the very start Allied has maintained high standards of integrity and service. Dedication to their ideals is the key to Allied's past and future in the building industry.
