A team you can rely on
Aluminum Associates is a leader in the exterior home improvement industry not only because we offer quality products and outstanding customer service, but also because we have assembled a wonderful team of experienced employees who contribute enormously to our ongoing success. We are fortunate to have quite a few staff members who have been with the company for 10, 15, even 20 years. Their experience is invaluable to the operation of the company and the service we offer our customers. As with any company, however, we also regularly have a number of new faces join us - individuals who bring fresh outlooks, ideas, and energy. As a team, they represent the best of both worlds.
Ian Low – President and General Manager
Owner of Aluminum Associates, Ian can remember accompanying his father (the company`s founder) to work and on business expeditions, when he was just five or six years old. In fact, he can`t recall a time when Aluminum Associates was not a part of his life. With virtually a lifetime of experience in the exterior home improvement industry, there is hardly a duty or task he has not performed. As a leader, the knowledge and skills that he learned as he progressed is invaluable.
