Storage Building and Garage Manufacturer Continues to Expand and Innovate   

(DENVER, Colo.) – August 25, 2016 – Tuff Shed, Inc., America’s leading supplier of storage buildings and garages, is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this summer, with the company enjoying record sales and revenue.

The privately-held, Denver-based company has experienced significant growth over the last five years, rebounding nicely from the economic downturn that hit the construction industry particularly hard during 2010 and 2011. The company is on a five year roll of year over year sales growth in the double digits in each of the past 5 years. Currently the company is projecting more than a quarter billion dollars in sales in 2016, an all-time high for Tuff Shed.

CEO and founder Tom Saurey attributes the strong growth to high quality products, strong brand recognition, world-class business partners and a hard-working, conscientious company workforce that includes more than 1,000 employees and more than 1,000 independent installers. “Our business is running on all cylinders,” says Saurey, who started Tuff Shed in Rexburg, Id. back in 1981. “It’s the people that make this engine go. And we’ve got the best people…from our suppliers to our partners at The Home Depot, to our teams of employees and contractors all the way to our customers.”

A network of 45 Tuff Shed manufacturing facilities allows the company to service customers across 36 states. Assortments of Tuff Shed storage buildings, garages and recreational buildings are on display across the country in 114 Tuff Shed factory-direct locations (including the factory locations) as well as in nearly 1,300 Home Depot stores.  For the last several years, Tuff Shed has been adding new locations and service areas. Already this year, three new manufacturing facilities opened in the first quarter, and another two factories are slated to open by the end of October.

TUFF SHED products include wooden backyard storage sheds, larger commercial storage buildings, garages and cabin shells. The company works with its customers to design and accessorize buildings, then pre-fabricates key building components at its manufacturing facilities so it can deliver and install buildings on the customer site. Over its 35 years Tuff Shed has designed, fabricated and installed more than 900,000 buildings, and will surpass its one millionth building in 2017.
