Holmes Manufacturing Aluminum Building Products a local manufacturing facility for Aluminum Siding Accessories is a company that can trace it’s birth all the way back to it’s parent company Holmes Siding Contractors. Located in the heart of Amish Country, 2 miles west of Millersburg, Ohio. they produce essential Aluminum Siding Accessories. We were founded in 1990 with the core values handed down to us from our Amish heritage – honesty, integrity and a strong work ethic. We have been producing aluminum building products and providing exceptional service for 20 years.
In 1984 Holmes Siding Contractors was started by Marvin Mast and Daniel Mast. Holmes Siding bent all of their own Aluminum products accessories.
They had a goal that a siding crew would be able to side one house per day rather than it taking a couple of days to do the job because of having to contiually go back and forth getting products that they needed for each job.
In 1990 they extended their business to MRV Siding a local facility where all contractors could have access to their siding needs in one place.
In 1998 they added on again, Holmes Manufacturing Aluminum Building Products, this time manufacturing Hand Bent Accessories and creating time saving new products for all siding contractors.
Time equals money and one of the many things that Holmes Manufacturing came up with was a brand new product called the JF Channel which virtually replaces the need for J and F Channel. Not only does this save money…..but it saves time and makes for a much cleaner and sturdier end product.
Between 1998 to 2007 Holmes Manufacturing has hand bent over 1,000,000 pieces of 6″ Fascia, that’s equivalent to 2000 miles! They have produced over 280,000 pieces of JF Channel and over 500,000 pieces of F Channel.
After making this many pieces by hand, they knew how they wanted to build a machine to meet their specifications. A custom machine was built and added to “The Bending Shop” giving them the ability to produce high quality bent Aluminum Accessories to meet the growing demand for their products.
During this same time period they produced over 1,000,000 pieces of soffit.
“At Holmes Manufacturing we believe first Honor God, respect family, employees & customers.” says co-owner Todd Kandal. “We will provide our time-tested superior quality products to distributors abroad, and we will constantly strive to give our customers service that is unparalleled in our industry.”
