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
Nottingham, NH – October 25, 2016 - GenTent Safety Canopies today announced it has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Champion Power Equipment. The agreement enables Champion Power Equipment to offer a branded, color-coordinated GenTent system, custom fit to their generator models.
“Champion Power Equipment has the reputation for providing dependable and durable power products which are engineered to meet our customers’ specific needs,” said Scott Stefaniak, Champion’s Generator Product Manager. “Our collaboration with GenTent provides a new Champion product that encourages customers to always run their generator outside, avoiding carbon monoxide poisoning, and by keeping sensitive areas dry. They are a strong fit with our company’s philosophy and we look forward to offering the enhanced safety and operating features to our customers.”
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.”
Champion Power Equipment's Storm Shield, its custom version of the GenTent 10k for portable generators, will be available throughout Champion's online and retail sales channels with anticipated availability in October, 2016.

About GenTent Safety Canopies
Established in 2011, GenTent® Safety Canopies are easy-to-install weatherproof covers that ensure safe operations of portable generators in virtually any wet weather conditions while keeping the generator portable. The GenTent reduces CO poisoning or electrocution risks by enabling portable generators to safely operate outdoors away from structures during wet weather. Installation is a simple 3-step operation - Clamp it, Frame it and Cover it – to “Weatherproof Your Power”™. GenTent Safety Canopies spawned the creation of the generator tent product category. The company’s independently tested, patented, portable generator safety canopies were relied upon during such notable storms as SuperStorm Sandy.
