Custom Metal Building Manufacturer
Leading the industry in technology, design flexibility, estimating ease and longevity, quality and value for more than 75 years, American Buildings is one of the largest and most experienced manufacturers of custom engineered steel building systems in the world. With one of the widest array of product offerings, from simple to the complex, American’s Builder Network throughout North America has the expertise to deliver top quality, sustainable metal building systems and services.
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 and relocated in 1964. 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 Illinois, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.
American Buildings 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 benefits from unrivaled financial strength and stability.
The growth of American Buildings has evolved over the years due to its continuous entrepreneurial culture and drive. American’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 nearly a thousand design-build contractors extending across the United States, Canada, and Caribbean.
