Charlotte, N.C., August 15, 2019 — Inc. Magazine recently ranked WamBam Fence, Inc. in the top third of their list of America’s fastest growing companies. Landing at 1,562 out of 5,000 companies, WamBam Fence, Inc. is the designer, manufacturer, and distributor of an innovative, no-dig system for vinyl and aluminum fence along with other outdoor products. The company has both headquarters and warehouse operations, as well as 18 employees, in the Charlotte area.
“Our incredible employees go above and beyond to serve our growing customer base, day-in and day-out,” said Denise Shields, president and co-founder, WamBam Fence, Inc. “Without their year-round dedication to do-it-yourself homeowners, we couldn’t deliver ‘the only fence that’s fun to install.’ From creative ideas that help us serve customers, to exceptional teamwork in our office and warehouse, our entire team is focused on delivering the best outdoor product to homeowners.”
WamBam Fence designs and delivers professional grade permanent fences that do not require digging holes, pouring concrete, or additional painting and maintenance. Created for the do-it-yourself market, WamBam Fence ships directly to homeowners across the country.
After many calls for a simpler fence that could be removed and reinstalled as necessary, the company launched a new line under the Zippity Outdoor Products brand in 2016. Zippity offers a simpler version of the no-dig concept for fencing and other outdoor products. Now homeowners can easily install outdoor privacy screens, mailboxes, and both permanent and semi-permanent fences without digging holes and mixing concrete (and without frustration!)
Homeowners can purchase Zippity Outdoor Products through homedepot.com, amazon.com, wayfair.com, and zippity-outdoor.com—no DIY experience necessary! The flagship WamBam Fence line is sold exclusively through wambamfence.com.
Whether you are trying to keep your children or pets safe, need a mailbox, or want to hide your trash bins, WamBam Fence and Zippity Outdoor Products can help. WamBam Fence and Zippity Outdoor Products manufacture and ship a variety of vinyl and aluminum fencing systems and outdoor products, while offering same-day shipping and convenient customer service for DIY homeowners.

Did you know about our Zippity Outdoor Products Brand?
Zippity is a line of affordable semi-permanent fence specifically designed for applications such as rental properties, puppy training or visiting grandchildren. It’s easier to install than traditional fence because it’s not permanent.
Within our Zippity line, we offer other outdoor products such as mailbox posts, outdoor showers and privacy screens. Privacy screens have been our hottest item this year. People are looking for a nice yet relatively easy way to hide their unsightly trash bins or AC units, especially as more and more Home Owner Associations are demanding it. The Huntersville Privacy Screen (2 Pack) is the latest addition to our privacy screen line and sales are already strong. Check out a video of it here:
Our business is highly seasonal which means there are about 13 weeks of the year where we do the bulk of our business. We have been growing a lot over the past few years, so it can be hard to predict sales and inventory requirements. Plus, when systems get pushed to the max, the cracks are exposed. It’s a good thing because it helps us fix issues to position ourselves for future growth, but it doesn’t come without frustrations!
2019 has so far exceeded our expectations. We had a record breaking month which means all departments were pushed to the limits: record number of sales, record number of transactions to process, record number of parts shipped, and subsequently most boxes shipped out the door in a single day, week, and month. All of our fabulous employees stepped up to the plate to go the extra mile to do what needed to be done. Spring can be very intense and stressful at times, but through it all we still try to find some time to have some fun. Here’s a few mid-spring office highlights:
Spring isn’t quite half over yet and the challenges will continue, but the growth related problems we face are good ones to have. I’m always in awe of our team in the busy season. It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we all band together.
