Since its founding in 1890, Salem Tent & Awning Company has been owned and operated in Oregon by three generations of the same family. Frank Monner moved the business from it’s location in Portland to it’s current home in Salem in 1925. Frank handed the reigns over to his son, Ernest in 1943. Ernest ran the business until 1976 when it was incorporated. Since that time his son in law, Terry Watson, has been an integral part of the operation. Today, he is the remaining working partner and Corporate President.
Terry and his employees are committed to bringing the best quality and selection of tents, and packing equipment, available anywhere. They have contributed to the design specifications for all their custom made items. The products that Salem Tent & Awning carries have come about primarily from listening to customers like you.
