What’s New at Armbruster Tent Maker

Even though this year businesses have suffered tremendous hard times, Armbruster worked hard on improving products and designs. We have learned from the Japanese firms that in hard times, invest in Research and Development so when the economy rolls back you have better and newer products to offer.

Armbruster Upgrades Celebration Fittings

Always continuing to improve our products, we re-engineered and upgraded our Celebration fittings for 2009. We had two goals in mind. One was to make a stronger fitting with tighter tolerances, the second was to make a fitting that was easier and faster to manufacture. After working with an engineering firm the result was a stronger, more robust fitting, that was easier for a welder to assemble.Final testing and evaulation is scheduled to be complete by mid summer 2009. All engineered Celebration aluminum systems will have these new fittings late summer/fall 2009. These fittings are compatible with all older Celebration systems. Our goal is to make a longer lasting stronger frame, and keep the cost competitive for our customers. We think you will be pleased. August Update - Final testing...
