Established in 1981, A1 Tarps began as a small outfit operating solely out of the swap meets of Southern California and has since grown to become one of the nationís largest importers of tarp and canopy products. Specializing in outdoor protection products and displays for market vendors, A1 Tarps has a well-established name as a supplier of quality merchandise and readily available stock. Our core values of hard work, great customer service, and quality canopy products has allowed us to not only grow rapidly but has also allowed our company to continuously push forward and bring in new quality shelter products. It is this focus of quality along with our fair pricing that has made A1 Tarps a driving force in the shelter industry.
Over the years the outdoor shelter industry has evolved in many ways and introduced the mass marketing of boxed canopy kits for resale. This new approach lowered the purchase price on canopies but made it more difficult for the consumer to find and purchase replacement parts for existing structures. It was this trend of mass marketing that made A1 Tarps stand out from its competitors. Rather than producing canopy box kits for mass retailers, A1 Tarps decided to stay on path as a full supplier of not only complete packaged canopy kits but also the much needed replacement components. This means that the consumer can feel confident that when a key component needs replaced there is availability without the need of purchasing a whole new canopy set. A1 Tarps has and will continue to keep large quantities of stock available for replacement parts such as pipe, fittings, ball bungee ties, accessories and tarps.
