World War II Era Tents

During World War II, Armbruster Manufacturing made tens of thousands of canvas shelter halves as well as other canvas structures, to support the war effort. The war department shipped the canvas, grommets, thread, and rope to tent suppliers like ourselves, and we manufactured the tents to the specifications provided. Today, we are pleased to offer several models based on these specs. We also offer custom sizes and shapes for every application.  Unless in stock, production times typically run 8 – 10 weeks.  For more information on caring for your Armbruster-made historical tent, visit our resources page or contact us.
