It appears you are correct according to their website.


TAMKO Building Products, Inc. is the nation’s leading independent manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products, waterproofing, composite decking and railing systems, and cements and coatings. With more than 60 years in the industry, TAMKO’s success is the direct result of teamwork, enduring relationships with customers, suppliers and employees, and its commitment to Six Sigma continuous quality improvement with its foundation based on the total quality management principles of Dr. W. Edwards Deming.

The Second Generation Of Leadership

In 1944 at the age of 69, E.L. Craig began a roofing business in an old streetcar barn in Joplin, Missouri. Mrs. Mary Ethel Craig named the company TAMKO – from the first letters of the five states they anticipated as their sales territory: Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. She later assumed the leadership of TAMKO in 1954 due to Mr. Craig’s health, although he continued as Chairman of the Board until his death in 1960. The Craigs’ daughter, Ethelmae, directed TAMKO's operations during the '50s and has continued as TAMKO’s chairman to this day. In 1960, Ethelmae’s husband, J.P. Humphreys, became TAMKO's president.
