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.
