Our Fence Story

A tradition of excellence – The American Fence Company Story

American Fence Company was founded in 1948 and like many of its contemporary companies, was built on hard work and the intuitive nature of its leaders. J.P Van Denburgh, a decorated war hero and former WWII Prisoner of War, and his wife Betty Van Denburgh committed their efforts to the only management style they knew: courage, integrity and hard work. Today, those values remain at the heart of what we stand for. It is with unmatched dedication and commitment to producing a quality product that American Fence Company has positioned itself as a leader in the fencing industry for over 70 years.



American Fence Company understands the importance of protecting what is important to you. This is why we have a Rent-A-Fence division to provide temporary fencing for all of your construction and special event needs.  Our rental fence panels are proudly manufactured in-house using American-made tube and chain-link fabric.  No temporary fence rental is too small or too large for our company to handle. If you need permanent perimeter security, our Installation division provides protection and security fencing for commercial and industrial projects.  Our products include chain-link, ornamental iron, aluminum fencing, high-security, and crash-rated fences, and our project experience includes airports, prisons, government facilities, healthcare, mixed-use, corporate, retail, residential, K-12, and higher education.  

If you are just looking to buy fence products including tube and pipe, chain-link fabric, fence fittings, or gates our Material Sales division is happy to help.  We offer a wide range of products from chain link to ornamental iron to game fence and other agricultural products to meet your needs.   With 16 branches in nine states across the U.S., American Fence Company has many locations to serve you. We offer complete installation and servicing on all projects or, if you are a “Do-It-Yourselfer”, visit one of our branches for a large selection of quality fencing materials.
