Manufacturer DescriptionLocated in Salem, in the heart of Southern Illinois, Hindman Manufacturing was founded in 1947 and now operates as Americana Building Products. The company mission is to produce products that will enhance your quality of life, while providing jobs which give satisfaction to our employees. Creating a comfortable and pleasing outdoor environment is what we do best with our product lines.
Americana Building Products started out as Hindman Manufacturing Co. in 1947 founded by Milo “Rip” Hindman and was located in Central City.
We purchased the company in 1985 to keep it from being sold and moved out of the area. In the years since our management team has carefully expanded the company through building new facilities, modernization of equipment and acquisitions.
Prior to 1985, the majority of the company’s sales have were directly tied to products used by the manufactured housing industry. Since then our corporate strategy has been to diversify our sales into other markets. Our focus was to pursue new sectors in residential and home improvement markets and also commercial markets. With the rise of large home improvement chains we have developed great working relationships with companies such as Lowe’s and Menards.
