Our Story

Who we are, what we do

who

Established in 2011, AL13®  is an innovative cladding company created by installers who were unable to access ACM cladding systems and solutions for their clients.

While established route-and-return methods limited the distribution of ACM through proprietary and exclusive relationships – AL13®  has broadened the distribution of ACM by selling through an extensive North American dealer network.

AL13®  effectively turned a proprietary service into a premium product that is now accessible to everyone.

Today, we continue to push innovation that brings value to architects, developers, designers, homeowners looking to bring modern, clean design to their projects.
