Fortress Building Products is pleased to partner with premier building supplies distributor Carolina Atlantic. To meet the needs of regional contractors and builders, Carolina Atlantic will deliver Fortress Building Products’ steel railing, steel framing and steel pergolas to its dealer network in North Carolina and South Carolina. With local stock, a line-up of best-in-class steel outdoor building products will be on the ground in the Carolinas for quick and efficient delivery.

“We are passionate about delivering stronger, safer and more sustainable building solutions to our partners,” said Jeff Schulz, senior VP sales & marketing at Fortress Building Products. “That’s why Fortress is proud to partner with Carolina Atlantic; they share the same commitment to providing top-quality products and excellent customer service to fuel growing markets. We couldn’t ask for a better partner during this period of strategic growth.”

With dealer locations throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, Carolina Atlantic will stock and distribute Fe²⁶ steel railing, Evolution steel deck framing and Evolution steel pergolas. Leveraging the proven performance of steel, the railing, framing and pergola systems pair lasting style with premium weatherability and low maintenance qualities.

“Working with Fortress Building Products is a true partnership and they have already demonstrated their commitment to our success,” said Jeff Tice, partner and general manager at Carolina Atlantic. “We are confident that stocking multiple outdoor building product lines will provide immediate and tremendous value to our partners throughout the Carolinas. In fact, we already had jobs sold before the product touched down at our distribution centers.”
