Metal Deck Distributor Celebrates 50 Years


A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, IL, announces 50 years in the construction industry. Nick A. Polizzi, working out of his basement as a metal deck broker, originally founded Area Construction Trades (A.C.T.) Inc., in 1970. Nick A. is still involved as an advisor for the company.

A.C.T. Inc. worked for the next 35 years as a metal deck subcontractor – furnishing and installing metal deck packages, including drawings and all coordination along with 7 field crews. A.C.T. no longer works as a subcontractor, phasing out the erection services in October 2007.

A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply began out of a direct need in the marketplace for a metal deck stocking dealer.  One truckload of B22 Prime Painted Roof Deck was brought into a warehouse in Schaumburg, IL. Today their network has grown to 15 locations around the country which gives A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply national/international exposure. 

The family-owned and operated company prides itself on fulfilling the needs of the metal deck users in the building community.
