ENVISION® DECKING CRAFTED IN THE USA;

BUILDING A LEGACY OF BEAUTIFYING AMERICA

ORLANDO, FLORIDA  January 9, 2018  TAMKO Building Products, Inc.’s Envision® decking is made in the heartland of the USA.  For the past nearly two decades, TAMKO has been producing composite decking at its Midwestern facility in Lamar, Missouri.

“Our Envision decking product is uniquely beautiful and proudly made by our hardworking employees, right here in the USA,” said TAMKO’s Executive Vice President Tim Whelan.

Even American musical artist Darryl Worley, well known for his numerous hit songs, including his latest single, “Lonely Alone”, and those that reached number one on the Country music charts, “I Miss My Friend”, “Have You Forgotten” (a 9/11 tribute ballad) and “Awful, Beautiful Life”, recently chose Envision® to beautify his home in Tennessee.

“I enjoy relaxing outdoors and taking in the view from my back deck,” said Worley. “I chose Envision decking because I wanted a good-looking, low-maintenance product that would give me more time to enjoy those relaxing moments with my family. The fact that it’s an American made product is important to me.”

According to the Alliance for American Manufacturing, “Buying American-made is the most direct way anyone can support American manufacturing and manufacturing jobs”.1

“TAMKO is an American company all the way – heart and soul,” said Whelan. “We’ve been making building products in the USA for more than 70 years. Our company story is one of American entrepreneurialism at its finest.”

Founded in 1944, TAMKO remains headquartered in Joplin, Missouri – where it began. The company now operates multiple manufacturing and warehouse facilities across the USA while remaining wholly owned and operated by its third generation of the founding family’s leadership.

Since entering the composite decking market in 1999, TAMKO’s significant manufacturing experience, dedication to teamwork and unparalleled obsession with quality has made Envision® decking one of the most recognizable brands in the American decking market.

To learn more about this American crafted product, visit TAMKO’s Envision® booth # W3101, January 9-11, at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida or go to EnvisionDecking.com to find out where to locate Envision® near you.

NADRA Atlanta Chapter Meeting Recap

NADRA Atlanta Chapter Meeting Re-Cap                   

April 2013

We tried something different with our second meeting of the year by hosting the first “Speed Dating with Deck Builders” event at the Ivy in Buckhead.  We had over 51 attendees at the meeting which included several first time visitors.  I want to thank the following Deck Builder members that agreed to be at the host tables:  David Tibbetts, Atlanta Decking, John Harper and Joel Harper with Leisure Time Decks, O.C. & Mary Kirk with Just Decks, Rick Goldstein and Chapin LaChance with the Mosaic Group, Mike Reasons and John Lea with DeckSouth, Frank Pologruto with Decks & More, John Paulin with Tailor Decks, Bryan Miller with OutBack Decks, and Steve Matrangos  & Craig Dickerson with DeckSource.

 

Thanks you all so much for giving your time and giving this new idea a chance.  We only have six meetings a year and this format opened up the opportunity for more of our great Vendors to get in front of the deck builder members.  I would also like to thank the following Vendor members who bought “dates” for the event:  Weyerhauser/ Cox, Tamko, Homeland Vinyl, Trex, Azek, Dixie Plywood, NyloBoard, MoistureShield, Fiberon and Universal Forest Products.   We could not have a chapter without the ongoing support of so many members and I want to thank each of you for giving your resources to this meeting and to the chapter.

We had an opportunity to take care of normal business and to discuss forming a local code committee made up of Rick Goldstein, Steve Matrangos and Craig Dickerson.  Rick and Steve both spoke to the formation of the committee and invited all members to contact them with ideas and specific topics they may want to cover.  We also spoke about the National initiative for Code’s and to remind everyone to fill out the survey that is online and to contact Glenn Mathewson with any information prior to his going to the ICC meeting.  We were also able to give away a number of door prizes to the contractor members because of donations from Tamko, Weyerhauser, Cox , Fiberon, Universal Forest Products, and Fortress.

Our next meeting will be held on June the 18th at the Ivey  in Buckhead.  Our sponsor for the meeting is Fastenmaster and we are currently looking for a guest speaker so please let me know if you have any ideas.   Thanks again for being a part of our Chapter and for all that each of you do to make us successful.

 

Respectfully Submitted ,

Keith Compton / Chapter President
