International Wood Products (IWP) and Fortress Building Products have a long history of building business together, and have entered an exclusive distribution agreement for the California and Northern Nevada markets. This monumental move will provide dealers in these areas the unique opportunity to purchase the entire outdoor living equation from one solution-provider.

IWP is a current distributor of Fortress’ Evolution steel deck framing system, Apex® capped bamboo-PVC composite decking and select steel and aluminum railing product lines, fasteners and pergolas. Fortress Fencing will be added to enhance the current offering.

“Working with Fortress Building Products is a true partnership and they have more than demonstrated their commitment to IWP’s success,” said Josh Hamilton, President of IWP. “We are confident that stocking the Fortress Total Solution will provide immediate and tremendous value to our dealers throughout California and Northern Nevada.”

“Partnering with IWP to extend our Total Solution of outdoor building products throughout the California and North Nevada markets was an easy decision—their reputation of impeccable dealer service speaks for itself,” said Jeff Schulz, Vice President, Channel Sales at Fortress Building Products. “IWP and Fortress Building Products have a shared commitment to taking a people-first approach to business and providing our customers with solution-driven products. This shared commitment is why we’re confident and excited to step into this next phase of growth together.”

“Stocking product for the entire outdoor package will give our customers a leg up on their competitors, said Phil Tachiki, General Manager of IWP’s Cloverdale, CA distribution center. “Dealers can turn to IWP for a complete arsenal of high-performance solutions that work together or stand alone. They will have increased access to a diverse portfolio of best-in-class outdoor building products that are easy to install and deliver a low environmental impact.”
