January 1, 1890
Alfred S. Proctor started Denver Tent & Awning Company on January 1, 1890. Ten Cornell University graduates each invested in the company. Mr. Proctor successfully directed the company for over 40 very prosperous years.
1939 – 1966
The company merged with the Brooks Company but retained the Denver Tent name. In 1945, the Denver Tent & Awning Company was sold to Ralph Avery, a Federal Inspector of War Plant Production. The company was sold to Medalist Industries in 1966 and again to Ernie Hagler, an icon in the tent-fabric industry, in 1969. Ernie owned the business for over 22 years. A few of Ernie’s employees are still with the company and speak fondly of his personable nature and leadership skills. In the early 1990’s, the company shortened its name to Denver Tent Company, reflecting a change in manufacturing focus.
Denver Tent Company has been family owned by the Womers since 2014. Prior to them, the company changed hands 2 times with different investor groups. Kevin and Laurie Womer bought the company from investment partners and have breathed life back into the company. Kevin has implemented his Six Sigma expertise to the production lines and has brought the once out dated processes closer to industry standards. Laurie has brought her sales and marketing experience to enhance the Denver Tent Brand and return it to its roots. Kevin and Laurie appreciate the wonderful history of the company and work tirelessly to keep the brand relevant and continue to manufacture in the USA. They believe in the American worker and take great pride in Denver Tent Company.
