Our History

It is unlikely that the original Northern Jalousie Manufacturing Co. could have foreseen the future of its small jalousie manufacturing business as it began production in the mid-1950's. Since the transition to the current ownership, NORTHERN's steady growth has been based on a well-earned reputation for dependable quality and personalized service, still the primary cornerstones for the Northeast's most versatile fenestration manufacturing company. This continuing progress is the direct result of our company's sense of responsibility to our customers' needs and to the overall service requirements of the marketplace. At NORTHERN, we are proud of our past and are looking confidently toward the future.

Well-known for many years as Northern Building Products, we changed our name in 2014 to Northern Architectural Systems to recognize the increasingly wide variety of façade products within our capabilities. Twin manufacturing plants in Teterboro and Carlstadt New Jersey encompass almost a quarter million square feet of workspace. These facilities are fully equipped with modern machinery designed for efficient and precise manufacturing of windows, doors, wall systems and other fabricated aluminum products and are directed by a full staff of engineers and architects.

In addition to an extraordinarily wide variety of custom and semi-custom products that can rapidly be tuned to the architectural requirements of a particular project, Northern maintains a complete inventory of standard storefront profiles and entrance doors for quick shipment. Northern also offers complete custom fabrication of narrow, medium and wide stile entrance doors and frames and both stick-built (field glazed) curtain wall and pre-glazed unitized curtain wall modules.

Our northern New Jersey location is strategically situated close to all major Northeast markets and within an easy transportation range to service customers throughout substantial sections of the Southeast and Midwest.

As a locally owned and operated company, Northern Architectural Systems is dedicated to servicing our customers by offering high quality, energy-efficient, competitively priced fenestration and building façade solutions to meet the requirements of a demanding market. Northern has been recognized on the INC Magazine list of the 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America and as one of the top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in New Jersey by NJBIZ Magazine.
