AOC's foundation began in 1961 with the Alpha Corporation of Tennessee. In 1994, a joint venture between The Alpha Corporation and Owens Corning's resins division created the new company, which was named Alpha Owens-Corning (AOC).
In 1998, the Alpha Corporation purchased Owens Corning’s interest in the joint venture to become the sole parent company of AOC. The same year, AOC acquired UK-based Hawk Ltd, now AOC UK, to expand its global presence and begin contract manufacturing relationships overseas.
Today, AOC's products are manufactured in facilities strategically located in North America, Europe and Asia. Our comprehensive product offering is supported by our global logistic network, which provides customers worldwide with efficient service, customized solutions and complete supply chain management.
AOC’s strongest assets are its dedicated and professional people. Each individual plays an active part in delivering the unparalleled customer support, technical expertise and product quality that define our company.
The people of AOC are guided by three core principles:
We add value to our products and services by maintaining complete responsiveness to our customers’ needs.
