GENTENT® SIGNS OEM AGREEMENT WITH CHAMPION POWER EQUIPMENT

New Covered by GenTent™ OEM Program Enables Portable Generator Companies to Custom Brand Patented Portable Generator Safety Canopy
GenTent’s new Covered By GenTent™ OEM program allows organizations to white label its safety canopy for portable and inverter generators. The company’s market-leading canopies keep generator operators safe by protecting the electrical panels, from any angle, while running in inclement weather -- including blizzard and hurricane force precipitation. Unlike typical generator doghouses or other full canvas enclosures, the GenTent system allows the generator to cool itself and ensure exhaust fumes are expelled to prevent buildup of poisonous gasses. “Champion Power Equipment is a thought leader and forward thinking company that takes safety and proper product usage seriously,” said Mark Carpenter, CEO and Founder of GenTent Safety Canopies. “As an early endorser of the GenTent product line, we are pleased that the generator tent product category is growing and to have Champion as our first Covered By GenTent® partner.”
