Impressive Growth Lands Fortress a Spot in Dallas 100™

GARLAND, Texas—December 11, 2019— Fortress Building Products has been ranked among the top 100 Dallas privately-held entrepreneurial companies for 2019. The Cox School’s Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship closely examined the sales of hundreds of companies from 2016 to 2018, and selected winners based on overall sales and revenue growth. Named #36 out of 100 companies, Fortress continues to drive innovation as an industry leader in the residential and commercial building products industry.


“These companies are the unsung heroes of the Dallas-area economy,” commented Simon Mak, the Linda A. and Kenneth R. Morris Endowed Director of the Caruth Institute for Entrepreneurship at SMU Cox. “They are entrepreneurial dynamos, creating products and/or services that in turn create jobs and generate income for their owners, not to mention the millions of dollars they collectively contribute to our economy.”


A four time Dallas 100™ winner, Fortress has delivered on their dedication to innovation with revolutionary products, such as their light-gauge steel deck framing that aims to upset traditional wood framing by addressing short lifespans, devastating deck collapses and more. In addition, Fortress recently announced their latest line of deck boards, the Infinity I-Series composite decking, which is 40% lighter and twice as strong as competitive decking options. With an extensive family of products including decking, railing, fencing, framing and accents – Fortress delivers the total solution for almost any outdoor application.


“As our team pursues our purpose to ‘lead global change in the way people build and live’, it is both rewarding and confirming to be named to the Dallas 100,” shares Matt Sherstad, CEO of Fortress Building Products. “Our growth continues to fuel our purpose, and the pursuit of our purpose continues to fuel our growth. The two work hand-in-hand. Recognition as a Dallas 100 company is confirmation that it is working.”
