Annandale Millwork Corporation was founded in
1952 by William C. Frogale to sell custom and
stock millwork to residential builders and is
now run by his sons, Rob and Gene Frogale. In
1989, at the urging of one of their top customers,
the Frogales founded Allied Systems Corporation
to produce building components.
A true innovator, William developed and distributed
the first pre-hung door unit In Washington metro
area. Prior to that, door units were produced
virtually by hand on the jobsite. Builders benefited
from William's ingenuity with savings in both
time and money, cutting the time it takes to produce
a door unit by 90 percent. Distributing the door
units in the Washington D.C. metro area catapulted
Annandale Millwork, now known as Annandale Millwork/Allied
Systems, to the forefront of the industry.
Innovation has been an important aspect of the
company culture, and the company is carrying on
in that same vein. With top-notch machinery and
systems and a history in the industry, the company
has seen tremendous growth over the past few years.
As building components such as roof trusses,
wall panels and floor systems have moved from
being field built by on-site carpenters to being
created in manufacturing plants such as ours,
the construction process has shifted from builders
to subcontractors and manufacturers. This trend
has created a significant niche growth industry
within the building construction business and
Allied Systems/Annandale Millwork is strategically
positioned as a leader of this fast-growing segment
of the industry.
