Finding the next generation of deck builders

He’s sometimes called the rocket scientist who builds decks, but Florida deckbuilder Robin Lopez’s unlikely background could make him the posterboy for the future of the skilled trades industry.
Growing up, Lopez realized he loved making things with his hands. By age 12, he had a small business building skim boards and selling them to his friends. But, as a young adult, Lopez figured he should go to college and pursue a high-tech degree. He spent years in a vault as an aerospace engineer designing top secret propulsion systems. He was living his career dreams. There was just one problem: he wasn’t really happy.
“I sat in a windowless room all day – I didn’t know if it was a beautiful day in Florida or not,” Lopez said. “And I couldn’t talk with anyone about my work. No one ever saw what I did.”
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – January 9, 2018 – TAMKO® Building Products, Inc.’s Envision® decking is made in the heartland of the USA. For the past nearly two decades, TAMKO® has been producing composite decking at its Midwestern facility in Lamar, Missouri.
“Our Envision® decking product is uniquely beautiful and proudly made by our hardworking employees, right here in the USA,” said TAMKO®’s Executive Vice President Tim Whelan.
Even American musical artist Darryl Worley, well known for his numerous hit songs, including his latest single, “Lonely Alone”, and those that reached number one on the Country music charts, “I Miss My Friend”, “Have You Forgotten” (a 9/11 tribute ballad) and “Awful, Beautiful Life”, recently chose Envision® to beautify his home in Tennessee.
“I enjoy relaxing outdoors and taking in the view from my back deck,” said Worley. “I chose Envision® decking because I wanted a good-looking, low-maintenance product that would give me more time to enjoy those relaxing moments with my family. The fact that it’s an American made product is important to me.”
According to the Alliance for American Manufacturing, “Buying American-made is the most direct way anyone can support American manufacturing and manufacturing jobs”.1
