Tapco discontinues Clubhouse Decking and Railing

August 31, 2017 LBM Journal

WIXOM, Mich. — Tapco International, a manufacturer of exterior building products, has announced the discontinuation of its Clubhouse Decking and Railing product lines. Acquired in February 2016, Clubhouse was owned by Tapco International and manufactured in Metamora, Mich. Clubhouse serves the residential and commercial decking market as a manufacturer of PVC decking distributed through a network of two-step distributor and professional dealer/lumberyard locations.

The decision to exit the decking and railing category was a business decision made so that Tapco can focus on its three main categories, including siding and trim, shutters and accessories, and other related exterior building products, the company announced in a press release. Since its acquisition last year, the Clubhouse product line has not shown a path to financial sustainability, the release stated. Tapco and its parent company, Headwaters, were acquired by Boral Industries in May of this year.

“While this is a difficult announcement, we are focused on remaining a market leader in our core categories and will be sharing positive product enhancements and new products in those categories in the coming months,” stated Brian Below, Division President, Boral Light Building Products.
