Company History: Incorporated in Texas on March 8, 1976, MBCI opened its first sales office and plant, located in Houston, Texas, in July 1976. The company expanded over the years operating 20 sales and manufacturing plants, which included two subsidiaries providing coil processing and coating service to the industry.

On May 4, 1998, MBCI became part of NCI Building Systems, Inc. which is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the stock symbol is NCS. This combination created a company with nearly $1 billion in sales, close to 5,000 employees and 37 manufacturing facilities.

Although MBCI (Metal Building Components, L.P.) began manufacturing basic metal building, roofing, siding and light gauge framing, it has grown far beyond what its name implies. MBCI has nineteen sales and manufacturing facilities selling and delivering a wide range of metal products direct to many facets of the contracting community.

MBCI built “service after the sale” by initiating 3-day delivery for custom manufactured products, a service then, in 1976, unheard of except at local lumber yards. Totally self-supporting, with in-house design capabilities for manufacturing equipment as well as product development, MBCI has maintained a leading position in the metal construction industry. In fact, MBCI operates the only independently owned U.L. approved test chamber.

Throughout the nation, MBCI manufactures preformed metal roofing, siding and light gauge framing for the commercial, industrial, architectural, residential and agricultural markets. The company manufactures 90% of what it sells and provides support for both the conventional and pre-engineered building construction industries. Vertical integration into the processing and coating segment of the industry has enabled MBCI to maintain quality painted material. MBCI owns two hot roll coil processing plants and two plants that paint coils.

MBCI has been uncompromising in its efforts to manufacture and deliver quality products. An example of this is its commitment to convert all base metals from galvanized coated steel to the superior GALVALUME® coated steel products. MBCI has grown since this change to be the world’s largest consumer of GALVALUME® coated steel products. From concept to completion, MBCI dedicates its staff and facilities to quality products and service utilizing state-of-the-art roll forming equipment, which provides custom quality products without custom costs.
