GenTent Expands OEM Agreement With Champion Power Equipment

Champion Power Equipment has demonstrated continued success in the Covered by GenTent™ program, tripling original projections of FY2017


Original Press Release


Nottingham, New Hampshire (September 27, 2018) -- GenTent® Safety Canopies today announced it has expanded their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Champion Power Equipment to include new hardware to cover Champion’s inverter class portable generators. The agreement enables Champion Power Equipment to offer a branded, color-coordinated GenTent system, custom fit to now fit all of their portable generator models.

“We’re seeing more and more customers move towards inverter generators and our digital hybrid model due to the reduced size/weight, clean power produced, reduced noise level, and better fuel efficiency” said Jake Stadler, Inverter Generator Product Manager for Champion Power Equipment. “With the positive response to our Storm Shield portable generator covers, Champion is excited to offer a convenient weather resistant solution to our users invested in our inverter generator line.”


Partnering Champion Power Equipment with the Covered by GenTent™ OEM program has yielded tremendous success in FY2017, tripling the original projections, and laying the ground work for the product line expansion in FY2018. GenTent’s market-leading canopies keep not only generators but generator operators safe by protecting the electrical panels while running in inclement weather -- including blizzard and hurricane force precipitation. Inverter class portable generators have become an increasingly popular sub division of the generator market, and Champion Power Equipment is consistently one of the leaders in the space. The expansion of Champion’s now industry-leading Storm Shield running cover is a natural step in continuing to grow the reach of their brand and satisfy their customers with the same quality they expect in the Champion product line.


“The GenTent is designed to help protect families, not only in times of emergency but anytime there is need for portable power. We are dedicated to helping customers use their power safely.” Said Brian Dobson, Business Development Manager for GenTent Safety Canopies. “We are proud to partner with Champion Power Equipment as they lead the way in their industry for customer safety. The expansion of the Storm Shield product line is a big step towards ‘WeatherProofing’ all portable power options in the market.”

Champion Power Equipment's Storm Shield, its custom version of the GenTent 10k for inverter class generators, will be available throughout Champion's online and retail sales channels with anticipated availability in Fall of 2018.
