Alside, a manufacturer and distributor of exterior residential building products, based in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, has opened its 100th supply center in the United States and its second location in the Pittsburgh area.

“Instead of downsizing and cutting back during these difficult economic times, Alside is expanding and growing our business to meet our customers’ needs. Our supply centers are equipped with more exterior building products, trucks and people to better serve the area,” said Jerry Burris, president and CEO of Associated Materials, Alside’s parent company.

Both Pittsburgh-area supply centers stock exterior building products, including Alside custom-made vinyl windows. The new 37,000-square-foot supply center opened January 2 at 3003 Venture Court, Export, Pa., serving the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh.

“We have experienced tremendous growth enabling us to expand in 2011, opening new centers in Austin, Texas; Toledo, Ohio; Aurora, Ill.; and Evansville, Ind. Currently, we employ 830 people throughout our supply center organization, with 78 employees added in the last year,” he added.
