9 Dec 2016
NCI Building Systems, Inc., incorporated on December 23, 1991, is a manufacturer and marketer of metal products for the nonresidential construction industry. The Company provides metal coil coating services for commercial and construction applications, servicing customers. The Company design, engineers, manufactures and markets metal components and engineered building systems in the industry. The Company operates in three segments, including metal coil coating, metal components and engineered building systems. The metal coil coating segment consists of cleaning, treating, painting and slitting continuous steel coils before the steel is fabricated for use by construction and industrial users. The metal components segment products include metal roof and wall panels, doors, metal partitions, metal trim, insulated panels and other related accessories. The engineered building systems segment includes the manufacturing of main frames, Long-Bay Systems and value-added engineering and drafting. The Company consists of a family of companies operating 38 manufacturing facilities spanning the United States and Mexico.
Metal Coil Coating
The Company’s Metal coil coating segment consists of cleaning, treating and painting various flat-rolled metals, in coil form, as well as slitting and embossing the metal, before the metal is fabricated for use by various industrial users. The Company cleans, treats and coats both heavy gauge (hot-rolled) and light gauge metal coils for its other operating segments and for third party customers, who utilize them in applications, including construction products, heating and air conditioning systems, water heaters, lighting fixtures, ceiling grids, office furniture, appliances and other products. The Company provides toll coating services under which the customer provides the metal coil and provides only the coil coating process.
The Company operates six metal coil coating facilities located in six United States. Two of its facilities coat hot-rolled, heavy gauge metal coils and four of its facilities coat light gauge metal coils. The Company process metal coils to supply substantially all the coating requirements of its own metal components and engineered building systems operating segments. The Company also process metal coils to supply customers in different industries.
The Company sells its products and processes to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers who utilize pre-painted metal, including other manufacturers of engineered building systems and metal components. The Company’s customer base also includes steel mills, metal service centers and painted coil distributors who in-turn supply manufacturers of engineered building systems, metal components, lighting fixtures, ceiling grids, water heaters, appliances and other manufactured products.
The Metal components segment include metal roof and wall systems, metal partitions, metal trim, doors and other related accessories. These products are used in new construction and in repair and retrofit applications for industrial, commercial, institutional, agricultural and rural uses. Metal components are used in construction applications, including purlins and girts, roofing, standing seam roofing, walls, doors, trim and other parts of traditional buildings, as well as in architectural applications and engineered building systems. The Company’s metal components consist of individual components, including secondary structural framing, metal roof and wall systems and associated metal trims. The Company sells directly to contractors or end users for use in the building industry, including the construction of metal buildings. Specific component products the Company manufactures include metal roof and wall systems, purlins, girts, partitions, header panels and related trim and screws. The Company is focused on developing and marketing new products, such as its Insulated Panel Systems (IPS), Eco-ficientTM panel systems, SoundwallTM, Nu-RoofTM system and Energy Star cool roofing.
Engineered Building Systems
The Company’s engineered building systems consist of engineered structural members and panels that are fabricated and roll-formed in a factory. These systems consist of structural framing, secondary structural members (purlins and girts) and metal roof and wall systems or conventional wall materials manufactured by others, such as masonry and concrete tilt-up panels. Engineered building systems consist of three systems: Primary structural framing, Secondary structural framing and Metal roof and wall systems.
Primary structural framing, fabricated from heavy-gauge plate steel, supports the secondary structural framing, roof, walls and all externally applied loads. Through the primary framing, the force of all applied loads is structurally transferred to the foundation. Secondary structural framing is designed to the primary structural framing and transfer applied loads from the roof and walls to the primary structural framing. Secondary structural framing consists of gauge, roll-formed steel components called purlins and girts. Metal roof and wall systems not only lock out the weather but may also contribute to the structural integrity of the overall building system. Roof and wall panels are fabricated from light-gauge, roll-formed steel in many architectural configurations. Accessory components complete the engineered building system. These components include doors, windows, specialty trims, gutters and interior partitions. The Company operates eight facilities for manufacturing and distributing engineered building systems throughout the United States and Monterrey, Mexico.
