Truck Tarps and Covers for the Winter Season

Protect Your Customers’ Investments

This time of year, it’s critical for your customers to have truck covers and tarps that they can rely on. The snow, sleet, and rain in the winter months can cause a considerable amount of damage while transporting goods. Without a truck tarp, transported goods can be damaged or even destroyed, costing your customers in lost time, revenue, and a lowered reputation. The best way to prevent such destruction is to protect your customers’ investments with a quality-made cover or tarp. This will ensure that the transported cargo arrive to their destination in the same state that they left in.

Truck tarps will protect your customers’ cargo from all types of external elements. As a result, long distance journeys during adverse weather conditions won’t damage the goods being transported. This is because our high-quality tarpaulins have the strength and durability to withstand all that Mother Nature can throw at them. Furthermore, using a truck tarp will allow drivers to secure their load for their safety as well as the safety of other motorists during transport. We offer two different options for truck tarps, including Lumber Hauler Tarps and Steel Hauler Tarps.

Lumber Hauler Tarps

Our lumber tarps are manufactured with the highest quality fabrics and can cover any size rig. All vinyl seams are heat sealed and all of the hems are double lock stitched. These tarps are also available in any of our fine coated vinyl selection or with a combination of vinyl weights. Additionally, our standard tarps are 18 oz. vinyl coated fabric.

Steel Hauler Tarps

Our steel hauler tarps are available in the highest quality vinyl coated fabrics or the 15 oz. water resistant canvas. All seams are double lock stitched. Also, just like our lumber hauler tarps, this option also can cover any size rig your customers need.

Accessories Available

  • Rubber Tarp Straps
  • Cargo Restraint Equipment
  • Patch Kits
  • Reinforced Poly Repair Tape

What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

Full Steam Ahead for the U.S. Textile Industry

iStock_000026525919_Medium

These days, there’s a lot of across-the-board economic optimism. U.S. manufacturing is seeing a major renaissance, housing is in a full-blown recovery, employment is up in many industries, and according to reports, January saw the highest level of consumer confidence since 2004.

There are many reasons behind this, ranging from true American innovation and technology to lower energy prices and a booming construction industry. When optimism and growth are being experienced throughout the country and its many sectors, it stands to reason that it will cause a ripple effect, reaching many industries and micro-economies.

As an example, Home Depot, the country’s largest home-improvement retailer, posted much-better-than-expected fourth-quarter profits because U.S. housing gains improved accordingly, causing Americans to spend more on their homes.*

This positive ripple effect is most definitely true for the textile industry, and all signs point to a very good year, with much improvement. As economic growth continues and consumers and businesses spend more, textile manufacturers and retailers will see the benefits.

Specific to the industry, there are a number of reasons things are looking up, including:

  • Reshoring: Countless businesses are returning business to American soil, due to higher quality and lower production costs.
  • Fewer imports: Accordingly, many American businesses are choosing domestic textile manufacturers over international suppliers.
  • Innovation and technology: American textile manufacturers are continuing to make great strides in quality and innovation, proving to be a better choice when quality is most important. U.S. textile mills are spending more on advanced technology, further increasing quality, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
  • “Made in America” sentiment: American consumers and businesses alike are choosing to buy domestic whenever possible, wishing to support local businesses and the many qualities they embody, including sustainability.

Statistics** are showing increased demand for textile mill products, home products including rugs, apparel, and more, and shipments of these products are continuing to increase—with projections showing continued increase this year.

It seems all signs point to a good year ahead for textiles—for many reasons—and we look forward to meeting the demands, as we have been since 1888.
