As of 15 Oct, Airframes Alaska proudly announces the acquisition of Alaska Tent and Tarp
Alaska Tent and Tarp, Inc., creator of the famed Arctic Oven Tent, a series of fabric
structures and various heavy-duty, arctic-grade products. Alaska Tent &
Tarp has been a local, family-owned textile outfitter for over sixty years with
retail/manufacturing locations in both Fairbanks and Anchorage. Their custom
designed, handmade products excel in arctic conditions. They serve both commercial
and recreational markets, which have soared in recent years amidst the growing
popularity of the Alaskan lifestyle.
Airframes Alaska’s origin story includes the combination of several
small, homegrown Alaskan companies. Until now, those companies centered around
the iconic bush plane, the Piper Super Cub. We’ve been seeking ways to bring
new and innovative products to the aviation industry in Alaska and beyond for
several years, and we have several
products under development behind the scenes that will make this merger a
perfect fit with our long-term vision. Our goal is to more completely outfit
the needs of our customers that work, live and recreate in the backcountry, and
further support their Life Beyond Runways.”
Airframes will maintain both a Fairbanks and Anchorage facility to
manufacture the existing specialized textile product lines. The Arctic Oven and
Vapex product lines will continue under their currently marketed names. Airframes
Alaska plans to add more aviation related and weight conscious product offerings.
