It all started with a desire to create something better. In 1979, Gerry Buchner, an aluminum siding installer, was frustrated with the quality of aluminum building products available on the market. He vowed to make durable products that were designed for the end-user and easier to install. Thus, Buchner Manufacturing Inc. (BMI) was born.

In the early days, Gerry and his sons, John and Andy, installed the products in addition to manufacturing them. As the business developed, they decided to step away from installations and focused solely on production. They expanded BMI’s manufacturing to include steel and copper products and started carrying items like vinyl siding, sealants, fasteners, metal roofing, and other exterior building products. From its humble beginnings in Pefferlaw, ON, Canada, Buchner Manufacturing has grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of building products, servicing North America and other locations around the world.

“Our approach has always been to do things “the Buchner way”, which means operating with integrity, produce high quality products with the end user in mind, and going the extra mile with our customer service.”

 -John Buchner, Vice President of Buchner Manufacturing
