About American Buildings Company
Leading the industry in technology, design flexibility, estimating ease and longevity, quality, and value for more than 70 years, American Buildings Company (ABC) is one of the largest and most experienced manufacturers of custom engineered steel building systems in the world.

Founded in 1947 in Columbus, Georgia, as Steel Builders, Inc., a small regional fabricator taking part in the post-World War II economic boom, the Company was renamed American Buildings Company and relocated in 1964 to its current headquarters in Eufaula, Alabama. Over the years, American has enjoyed a dynamic growth history, as dynamic as the metal buildings industry itself, and now operates with full-service plants located in the South, Midwest, West and Atlantic regions.
American Buildings Company was acquired by Nucor Corporation, a Fortune 500 Company, in 2007. As a division of Nucor Corporation, the largest steel producer and steel recycler in North America, American Buildings Company benefits from unrivaled financial strength and stability.
The growth of American Buildings Company has evolved over the years due to its continuous entrepreneurial culture and drive. ABC’s advancement from simple beginnings to its present position as one of the industry’s leading manufacturers is based on the expansion of its Builder network, which includes over 1,000 design-build contractors extending across the United States, Canada, and Caribbean.
