Associated Materials LLC’s parent company has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it plans an initial public offering of its common stock.

The company produces exterior building products including vinyl windows, siding, railing and fencing. It also makes aluminum trim coil, aluminum and steel siding, and related accessories. Its products are marketed under brand names including Alside, Gentek, Revere, Alpine, Preservation and Ultraguard.

The parent, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio-based Associated Materials Group Inc., said that the offering will be used to redeem a portion of the outstanding 9.125 percent senior secured notes due in 2017. The number of shares and the price range of the offering have not yet been determined.

Goldman, Sachs & Co., Barclays, UBS Investment Bank and the Deutsche Bank Securities are acting as the joint book-running managers for the IPO.

According to a company news release, after completion of the offering, certain investment funds affiliated with Hellman & Friedman LLC will continue to beneficially own the majority of voting power of all outstanding shares of common stock.
