In 2016, GenTent announced its Covered By GenTent™ program for original equipment manufacturers. The Covered By GenTent program allows organizations to white label GenTent safety canopies for portable and inverter generators. Champion Power Equipment was the first manufacturer to offer a custom branded and color-coordinated GenTent system, custom fit to Champion generator models. The partnership provides a new Champion product — encouraging portable generator users/customers to always:
Run their generator outside
Avoid carbon monoxide poisoning
Keep sensitive areas dry and safe from damage or electrocution during nearly any wet weather
In addition, GenTent joined the Portable Generator Manufacturers’ Association (PGMA) as an Associate Member in 2016. The membership allows GenTent to support the PGMA’s “Take it Outside” safety awareness campaign encouraging consumers to only run their generators outside to reduce the risk of CO poisoning.
In addition, Camping World was added to GenTent’s list of growing dealers in 2016. Camping World has been offering specialized products, expert advice and great service to recreational vehicle owners and campers across North America for 50 years.
“2016 has seen continuous growth for GenTent,” said Mark Carpenter, CEO and Inventor of GenTent Safety Canopies. “We have maintained strong sales to consumers for emergency backup and off-the-grid recreational use, in addition to supplying the U.S. armed forces, military equipment contractors, municipalities, and power companies with a safer means to operation portable generators. We are encouraged by our 2016 momentum and have hired staff to further expand our presence in 2017.”
