COMPANY OVERVIEW

CityPost was developed by three friends (Mike, Aleksi & Nate) from Spokane, WA. Over the course of three years as Mike and Nate took on the task of building their own custom homes they wrestled with the high-cost of cable railing and knew there must be a better way. After exhausting every alternative on the market they decided to create their own low cost cable railing solution to solve the problem of high-cost cable railing market.

Nate, a former weapons systems researcher for the U.S. Navy with a PhD in optimization theory, Mike, a sales manager for an international construction materials manufacturer, and Aleksi, a Cornell University grad mechanical engineer with years of design experience in the tech industry, realized they had a solution to disrupt the cable railing industry. By optimizing the design of a single post to fit with their patent pending bracket Mike, Nate, and Aleksi were able to create a cable rail system that can be installed on horizontal planes (balconies, decks, patios, etc) as well as stairs without ever cutting a post or using expensive hardware. In addition the optimized bracket allows for a wide variety of custom handrails (exotic wood millwork, composite etc.) to be incorporated and match a custom decor. Thus, with a goal of no fuss install and high-end custom look, CityPost was born.

CityPost is committed to offering high quality components and the popular high-end look of cable railing without the high-end cost. We believe that quality, beauty, and affordability can co-exist. We ship nationwide and have local staff available for questions in Spokane, Portland and Seattle.

Cable railing has seen a huge surge in popularity in the last few years due its sleek and modern design elements that maximize visibility and improve the aesthetics of stairways and decks. Sadly, cable railing has been largely out of reach for many homeowners because of its sky-high material cost. In the past, cable railing needed to be installed by a skilled contractor or deck builder because of the intricacies and difficulty of piecing together the cable railing and posts.
