Formerly known as Trex® Commercial Products, the railing and platform solutions provider which previously marketed products under the Trex Commercial and Staging Concepts brands, is now Sightline Commercial Solutions. Now owned and operated out of Minnesota, the newly named company will continue its legacy as a leading fabricator and supplier of architectural railing, metal, glazing, and portable platform solutions for the commercial, sports venue, live entertainment, and performing arts industries.
“Our talented team is ready and excited for this next chapter in our company’s rich storyline and eager to continue building on our reputation as a leader in our space,” said Laura Rygielski, CEO of Sightline Commercial Solutions. “Our new name celebrates our 32-year history while reinforcing our focus on being a provider of customized solutions for the most complex challenges.”
Founded in 1990, the company originally called Staging Concepts, inspiring the S and C in the new moniker, entered the market with a portfolio of platforms, risers, stairs, and a vision for growth. Over the past three decades, it has evolved and expanded into a comprehensive provider of custom-engineered architectural railing and staging systems and a supplier of choice for event venues of all sizes and functions.
Initially focused on the live events and entertainment markets, Staging Concepts started out working with theaters and live event spaces. The company soon added architectural railings to its offering, attracting the attention and business of some of the country’s most renowned contractors, architects, and athletic venues. Ultimately, SC Railing was formed, which quickly became the go-to resource for specifiers in the ultra-high-end construction contract arena, booking jobs at dozens of professional and collegiate stadiums and arenas.
Over the years, the business has continued to diversify within the commercial construction market, creating innovative solutions for projects across hospitality, healthcare, worship, and retail. The company also has provided custom staging and railing solutions for such high-profile events as the NCAA Final Four Tournament, Sundance Film Festival, and the presidential inauguration.
While the name has changed, the company’s core philosophy remains the same, which is to create inventive solutions for the most complex challenges while providing unparalleled value and an exceptional customer experience. Unlike traditional suppliers, Sightline Commercial Solutions offers turnkey support capabilities from in-house designers, engineers, and structural analysts to 3-D scanning capabilities, custom fabrication, expert installation services, and more.
