Allied Building Products Corp., a division of Oldcastle, Inc., announced that it has completed the acquisition of the assets of United Products Corporation (United), a privately held roofing and siding distributor based in Minneapolis, MN.

Founded in 1925, United was purchased in 1975 by Al and Char Hatfield, who grew the business to 15 branches across 5 states; 7 in Minnesota, 3 each in Wisconsin and North Dakota, and 1 each in South Dakota and Nebraska. During that period, United became well-known, by the contractor and distributor community alike, for providing the highest levels of customer service across the Northern Plains. Hatfield said "The United Team, aka Eagle Team, is extremely pleased to be joining forces with Allied. The two organizations share a common goal of doing whatever it takes to exceed the customer's expectations at every opportunity. We look forward to continuing to support our customers' needs as part of the Allied team."
