From humble beginnings in our owner’s basement, to a multi-facility campus sprawled across Midwestern soil, Viewrail is the leading national provider of modern stairs and railing. Our raw materials are domestically sourced and locally produced. Combining human artistry and cutting edge technology, designing a beautiful custom stair or railing system has never been easier.
More than Manufacturers
Whether you’re a homeowner or a contractor, a first-time buyer or you’ve been working with us for years, your project is handled with care and attention. A team of experts aided by 3D rendering software walk you through design, configuring your vision to the exact specifications provided. Just like our railing, we want you to have a clear view of our processes. Sign up here for a tour of our facilities, hosted every month.
Committed to Excellence
Investing in the right people for our team is just as important as determining the best material for our products – if not even more so. We are dedicated to pouring into our staff so they become the best possible versions of themselves they can be – both professionally and personally. Hundreds of hours are dedicated to training on product, and leadership development, all with the goal in mind to serve you better.
Sustainability At a Glance
We work hard to eliminate waste in our company. Scrap glass becomes fresh glass, scrap metal becomes new metal, and wood not suitable for treads, platforms, or handrails is used to create glass crates and skids. As stewards of our environment, it is very important to take only what we need and to use all of what we have to the greatest extent – that’s why all of our products are made to order.
Our Hardware Pull Center (HPC) runs on a Kanban system – an inventory control system created by Taiichi Ohno of Toyota Production. The Kanban system allows employees to track when stock is running low and promptly fill the need without risk of overstocking or building an inventory of less frequently needed parts.
We want to keep your jobsite and our planet clean. In an effort to reduce company waste, we have changed our packaging materials to be completely recyclable. Viewrail is committed to becoming plastic free by 2023. We are well on our way to achieving this goal.
The Pit Crew is a department within our company that specializes in packaging and assembly of Viewrail products. The department was created in April 2021 to provide opportunities for people with disabilities within our community to find meaningful employment and engage in enriching relationships. We partner with ADEC – a local advocacy organization serving people with disabilities – to offer job placement and coaching.
As an organization, we are committed to ensuring that a minimum of 1-2% of our workforce is made up of individuals with disabilities.
