Our main supplier of asphalt roofing and close business associates, GAF
, has such
an interesting history, that we wanted to highlight it. First off, GAF stands for General Aniline and Film ~ interesting, right?!
One main story line, is the past with film and the View-Master. Most of us can remember film and of course, the View-Master!
GAF Materials Corporation, doing business as GAF, is a company CURRENTLY based in Wayne, New Jersey though moving to Parsippany NY, that has roots dating back to the late 19th century. The GAF acronym stands for General Aniline & Film. The company has historically been primarily focused on manufacturing of roofing materials for residential and commercial applications. At one time GAF was also active in manufacturing photographic film as well as cameras and projectors (both still and motion picture), and was the manufacturer of the View-Master toy line. Briefly in the 1970s, it was the official film of Disneyland and at this time, actor Henry Fonda served as the company’s spokesman in several television commercials including one that featured Jodie Foster in her first acting role.
