Our story

Canvas Products began in 1951… 

Frank Salwolke:

“My father started working for the original fabrication shop in 1972 and wound up purchasing the business (in 1974) from the original husband-and-wife team that owned it. When my dad retired in 1991, my wife, Maryann, and I purchased the business. Then, several years ago, our son, Jake, began to work for us full-time. Currently, it’s a genuine family business: just the three of us, making all types of awnings, boat covers, truck tarps, and lots of custom-made items, too.”
