The local community has once again voted TAMKO® Building Products as the Favorite Industrial Employer and Favorite Employer Overall in contests hosted by regional newspaper, The Joplin Globe. The annual contests invite community members from the four-states to vote on their favorite businesses in a variety of categories. During its more than 75 years in business, TAMKO has employed thousands of dedicated men and women across the country. Many of those employees have, and still do, call the four-state area home, just as TAMKO does, since the company’s first-ever location was a streetcar barn in Joplin, Missouri, in 1944.
Since then, TAMKO has grown to a truly national business and one of the largest manufacturers of asphalt shingles in the country, while maintaining the best of its hometown company culture. TAMKO’s leadership values the four-state community and the loyal, dedicated employees who have worked hard to make TAMKO a success.
