Fortress Expands Distribution in Midwest

Fortress Building Products is expanding its distribution partnership with R/W Specialties ahead of peak building season. Fortress will increase its offerings with R/W Specialties to deliver the Total Solution (decking, railing, fencing, framing, lighting, fasteners, cladding and pergolas) to the Midwest market.

“A longtime Fortress distributor, R/W Specialties is everything that we could ask for in a partner,” said Jeff Schulz, senior VP, sales and marketing at Fortress Building Products. “Their commitment to providing incredible dealer service has not wavered over the last 20 years, and it’s why we’re confident that expanding our distribution agreement with R/W Specialties is the right move. Their strong reputation and solid dealer network in the Midwest will be invaluable to Fortress during this next phase of growth.”

R/W Specialties has been a Fortress partner for over two decades and has dealer locations in Festus, Jefferson City, and Clinton, MO.

“Fortress’ reputation for delivering category-leading products and their people-first approach to business makes them an ideal partner,” said Marty Borquez, executive VP of R/W Specialties. “We are excited to take this step—it will bring tremendous value to our Midwest dealers. By extending a complete arsenal of outdoor building products that can work together or stand alone, builders and contractors can meet growing project demands prior to peak building season.”
