October 6, 2023

Cornerstone Building Brands, Inc. (“Cornerstone Building Brands”), the largest manufacturer of exterior building products in North America by sales, announced plans to celebrate National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) across its North American facilities. Beginning today and continuing throughout October, the company will host events to honor its nearly 20,000 team members and open its doors to future manufacturing talent though a series of open houses.

“At Cornerstone Building Brands our people are the difference, dedicated to understanding and delivering on our customers’ needs by embodying a culture grounded in customer-centricity, interconnectedness and continuous improvement,” said Rose Lee, president and CEO of Cornerstone Building Brands. “Manufacturing Month is the perfect opportunity for future talent to learn more about the wide range of career opportunities available within the industry, as well as the specific goals our winning team of top-tier talent is working together to achieve.”

MFG Day, an initiative of the Manufacturing Institute and supported by the National Association of Manufacturers, has been celebrated on the first Friday of October since 2012. This year’s celebrations come at a particularly crucial time for the future of the modern manufacturing industry as thousands of jobs remain unfilled month-to-month. According to the latest research from the Manufacturing Institute, this skills gap has led to more than 2.1 million U.S. manufacturing jobs that need to be filled by 2030.1

Cornerstone Building Brands is addressing this deficit by opening its doors to the next generation of manufacturing professionals. At its exterior siding facility in Jasper, Tennessee, and its windows facility in North Brunswick, New Jersey, high school students, teachers and community leaders are invited to tour the facilities and experience the product development process hands-on. Cornerstone Building Brands facility and company leadership will also be in attendance to facilitate event activities and offer insight into available career and professional development opportunities.

“I’m proud to be part of a team that works together safely, inclusively and with integrity to ensure our products reach the highest quality levels every time,” said John Wallace, executive vice president, operational excellence at Cornerstone Building Brands. “We look forward to continuing this standard of excellence and welcoming the next generation to explore the many opportunities in an ever-evolving manufacturing industry.”

In addition to community events, the company is also shining a light on its network of team members across North America who are dedicated to making a positive impact on their customers and communities. At its more than 170 locations, Cornerstone Building Brands is recognizing team members throughout October by hosting team building and employee appreciation events, celebrating the work team members do every day as critical members of the manufacturing industry.

This year’s Manufacturing Month celebrations are just one way the company positively impacts the communities where team members live, work and play. Through Cornerstone Building Brands Cares initiatives, the company works with local partners and charitable organizations to donate building products, facilitate house builds and strengthen volunteer engagement. To date, Cornerstone Building Brands has donated more than $3.1 million in products and resources, helping to build or remodel more than 670 homes in 90 communities through its Home for Good project.
