Wholesale Building Material Distributor adds IG Railing to Product Offering

Effective immediately, Parksite Inc. will offer IG Railing®, the #1 brand of frameless glass railing in its New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Maryland territories. IG Railing is built on a base mount, called a spigot that houses a Wi-Fi controlled LED light system, and holds 1/2” (12mm) tempered low iron glass. By day, IG Railing eliminates sight obstructions of traditional post and rail systems.  By night, the low iron glass + LED lighting allows illumination to flow throughout the panels in a vibrant yet tasteful fashion. Glass connector accessories, top rail and spigots are available in matte black or polished finishes.

“We chose IG Railing because we see the demand growing for enhanced view products, and nothing outperforms frameless glass.  The value proposition to all our markets is very complementary to our existing business, “said Bob Higgins, Senior Vice President of Sales at Parksite. “The IG Railing team is just hitting their growth stride, but their foundation of leadership, experience, and entrepreneurial spirit is a great fit for Parksite and we are excited for this partnership.”

“We’re excited to partner with Parksite as we continue to execute our North America distribution plan,” said Mike Kunard, co-owner of IG Railing. “Parksite has been a pivotal distributor to accelerate category shifts for decades, and we are committed to providing the leadership needed in the category shift to glass railing in the outdoor living category”. 

Parksite firmly believes their competitive advantage is directly attributable to their employees. According to CEO, Ron Heitzman, “Every one of our associates is dedicated to contributing to the success of both our customers and our suppliers. The dedication and excitement that is generated when everyone is an owner is extraordinary.”
