TAMKO Building Products, LLC is a building materials company based in Joplin, Missouri.

The company's products include Heritage shingles and composite decking.[1]

The company has plants and operations in 11 states, and operates in 48 of the 50 states. They employ close to 600 people just within the Joplin area, and 1500 nationally.


Tamko was founded in 1944 by E.L. Craig and his wife, Mary Ethel. Its name is an acronym which stands for "Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma.[2]

The CEO since 1994 is David Humphreys, the grandson of the company's founder.[3]


Tamko became the subject of a 2014 class action lawsuit for defective fiberglass shingles. Claimants allege that the company was unresponsive to warranty claims. On May 22, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court denied Tamko's petition to block the lawsuit, allowing proceedings to continue.[4]


The St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council established an ongoing boycott of Tamko in 2016.[5] The company's revenues have, however, continued to grow in spite of the boycott.[6]
