50th Anniversary

Celebrating our past, inspiring our future

Most companies don’t last 10 years, and only a fraction make it to 20. For Trendway, 2018 marks 50 years of building beautiful products and delivering them with outstanding service. We think this is cause for celebration.

Join us this year in celebrating Trendway’s 50 years, we’ll be looking back, but also looking to the future. As we move into the new year we will continue our mission of making speed and ease the defining experience for our customers by simplifying the process of creating beautiful spaces and delivering them on time, every time.

A Look Back

50 Years of Service

Founded in 1968, Trendway began manufacturing a new gypsum-based wall panel that offered higher fire resistance and better sound rating than any other partitions available at the time. When the Heeringa family took over in 1973, the business was struggling, but Don Heeringa held the company together through his commitment to service. Service to his employees, customers, and community was the philosophy he led with.

Today, 50 years later, Trendway continues to offer a unique combination of quality, service, and unmatched responsiveness that sets us apart.
