Over the years, one of the core strategies adopted by A.J. Manufacturing has been the planned and measured diversification of product lines. Today, A.J. is involved in manufacturing more than Post Frame doors and windows; A.J. is a leader in design and manufacture of HVAC Access doors, Residential Storm doors, Air Supported Structure doors and Contract Manufacturing. As any good financial planner will advise, diversification allows individuals the ability to avoid risk, preserve capital and leverage growth. The same basic principles apply to companies that want to grow and expand in a responsible manner for the sake of the customers who have come to depend on a steadfast and stable supplier of product.
Positive results of this deliberate strategy are manifest in many ways for A.J. customers. Since A.J. has one common Engineering Department, innovations in one product are able to traverse product lines and benefit all. Since A.J. has one common Quality Department, the most rigorous standards and tolerances are easily adopted by all segments. Since A.J. has one common Shipping & Receiving Department, best methods for packaging and efficient product delivery are shared by each production line. Since A.J. has one common Inside Sales/Customer Service Group, customers can be sure to reach a professional representative well versed in our broad range of products.
Diversification by A.J. can help you avoid risk and reach your long-term goals, take a closer look at what makes A.J. the best value.

I am pleased to announce an improvement to our product offering. In a display of our commitment to continuous improvement and ever exceeding the needs of our customers, we have developed, tested and finalized a new high-performance gasket for our HVAC doors.
18 months of development and testing have produced a gasket that will exceed your highest expectations.
- Just .25 cfm total air leakage at 10” wg.
- Not a drop of water over the sill after 15 minutes at -2”, -8”, and 14”, and 4 hours at -20”.
- Extruded foamed EPDM rubber resists compression set, and maintains greater flexibility in cold temperatures
- Field replaceable!
We will be implementing this improvement as a running change in about 4 weeks for all 1.7” aluminum frame doors. The 1”, 2” and 4” doors will be upgraded in the coming months as aluminum frame extrusions and production dies are updated.
Improved efficiencies in our processes here at AJ will allow us to upgrade sealing performance on all doors at no additional cost to you!
