Trex Commercial Products Changes Name to Sightline Commercial Solutions

Formerly known as Trex Commercial Products, the railing and platform solutions provider that 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,” says 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.”

Company history

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 and 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 offerings. Ultimately, SC Railing was formed, booking jobs at dozens of professional and collegiate stadiums and arenas, including SoFi Stadium and Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, Allianz Field in Minneapolis, and Dickies Arena in Ft. Worth.

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 high-profile events such as the NCAA Final Four Tournament, Sundance Film Festival and the U.S. presidential inauguration.

What the company says

“Wherever people gather, artists inspire and crowds go wild, our mission is to help venues optimize their spaces to deliver an elevated, memorable experience,” says Rygielski. “With our extensive manufacturing capabilities and unrivaled engineering expertise, we are able to offer a broad array of solutions along with comprehensive support from inspiration to installation.”

While the name has changed, the company’s core philosophy remains the same, to create inventive solutions for the most complex challenges while providing unparalleled value and an exceptional customer experience. 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.

“We understand that our role goes beyond being just a fabricator,” Rygielski says. “It’s about being a meaningful partner with our customers, from the conceptual beginning to the successful completion of a project.”
