Barrette Outdoor Living has acquired Madden Manufacturing Company of Missouri, a manufacturer of railing products for the do-it-yourself homeowner and professional contractors based in Lake Ozark, MO.

As part of its mission to offer diverse, flexible outdoor solutions that are ingeniously designed and meticulously engineered, Barrette Outdoor Living partners with companies that share similar visions and values. Madden Manufacturing is recognized across the manufacturing industry for its commitment to customer service. At the same time, Madden provides easy-to-install, quality-engineered outdoor living products, including deck railings, handrails and screen enclosures. By partnering with Madden, Barrette gains faster shipping times, a broader product portfolio and the ability to serve contractors and homeowners across the country.

“Madden Manufacturing has a well-earned reputation of going above and beyond for residential and commercial customers in Missouri and its surrounding states, so teaming up is a great opportunity for us both,” says Jean desAutels, CEO of Barrette Outdoor Living. “This partnership gives us a broader product offering, particularly with the breadth and depth of Madden’s railing products, especially its screen enclosure applications.”

The facilities and teams at both Madden Manufacturing and Barrette Outdoor Living will continue to function independently while combining the strengths of both partners. Madden Manufacturing will continue to service their existing customer base and at the same time expand to service and grow the various channels of distribution that are part of Barrette Outdoor Living. Barrette Outdoor Living intends to utilize the strengths and know-how of Madden Manufacturing’s existing workforce to help build the business.
