TAMKO Building Products Inc. has announced an agreement with Minnesota-based retail chain Fleet Farm to distribute Envision composite decking. Fleet Farm has nearly 40 locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North Dakota, and recently broke ground on its first store in South Dakota.
“Fleet Farm is a great cultural fit for us as a business,” says TAMKO Executive Vice President Tim Whelan. “Fleet Farm started their business in 1955, TAMKO started in 1944. Fleet Farm’s core values are ‘Honesty, Integrity and Value’ – TAMKO’s are ‘Honesty, Integrity and Compliance.’ We already mirror and respect so much of Fleet Farm’s past, and we’re excited to see what we can achieve together in the future.”
Fleet Farm is distributing the Envision Inspiration capped composite decking, from TAMKO, in the colors Tangled Twine and Weathered Wicker, and EverGrain uncapped composite decking in the colors Cape Cod Grey and Weathered Wood. These products are available at Fleet Farm in 12- and 16-foot lengths, in both grooved and square profiles. Coordinating skirting is also available at Fleet Farm for these product profiles.
“Fleet Farm customers are known to say, ‘If Fleet Farm doesn’t have it, I don’t need it’,” says Envision Decking Director of Sales and Marketing Shara Gamble. “We believe Envision is a product that can improve people’s lives by giving them an extraordinary space where beautiful things happen, so we knew that our products needed to be in Fleet Farm.”
Fleet Farm just opened its 38th and 39th locations in August, with new stores in Oconomowoc, Wis. and Sioux City, Iowa. The chain has been on an expansion push since 2017, with plans to open three additional locations by Oct. 2018, and several locations in 2019.
Fleet Farm will hold a grand opening celebration for its location in Eau Claire, Wis., on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 6:45 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 3165 Old Town Hall Road, Eau Claire, Wis., 54701.
