Envision Building Products, Lamar, Mo., has purchased Fairway Architectural Railing Solutions, seeing Fairway’s railing repertoire as a perfect complement to its composite decking.

“We believe this is the right partnership to meet the evolving needs of our customers while furthering our ability to create best-in-class outdoor products and achieve our vision in becoming the undisputed market share leader of non-wood railing in the U.S. market. We are excited by Fairway’s opportunities under Envision’s ownership, and we look forward to this dynamic new chapter and the exponential new growth opportunities it brings.” said Fairway CEO Greg Burkholder.

Fairway’s existing management team will remain in place and its current product lines will continue to be offered under the Fairway brand, with Fairway also having the ability to provide its customers access to Envision composite decking. Envision will likewise be able to offer its customers access to the suite of Fairway railing products.

“This acquisition expands Envision’s footprint in the outdoor living category and will not only increase market reach but will also provide operational efficiencies,” said Shara Gamble, VP of Envision sales & marketing. “The individual strengths of each company are complementary and will have a positive impact on our combined service and product offerings.”

The expanded product offerings provided through the acquisition include comprehensive railing solutions in vinyl, aluminum, steel, composite, and cellular PVC.
