In 1928, Grandpa Arthur Rosenkoetter started our company.  He led the company through the Depression, World War II, and the Korean War.  


During the war days, our company was actively making war tents and duffel bags for our G.I.’s., employing over 200 seamstresses.  


In 1982, we were invited to be awning makers for the World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee. In 1988, we opened a new manufacturing facility in Virginia and grew to become the largest manufacturer from Chattanooga, TN, east to Roanoke, VA and north and south from Charleston, WV, to Charlotte, NC.  In 2011, we worked with several insurance companies and customers when the tornadoes hit several towns in the southeast.


We just completed our contract with Kennedy Space Center in February 2015 for awnings at the Saturn V building.


We now have locations in Virginia, Tennessee and in 2008, our newest branch in Florida.


Our awnings stretch from Canada, down to the Cayman Islands, and each state inbetween. Because of our commitment to quality, some of our customers include McDonalds, Burger King, Applebee’s, Pepsi, Taco Bell, Long John Silvers, Walmart, and many others.


The Awning Company has made it a goal to keep up yearly with state-of the-art systems and products for our customers.  We specialize in canvas and back-lit awnings, lighted  signs, custom canvas work, and related products.
