About Us

More Than 80 Years as Arizona’s Awning Company!

Founded in 1928, Arizona Awnings began as a family-owned and operated company with the slogan “everything in canvas.” They believed the key to success was fabricating and installing a high-quality product at a fair price while always focusing on customer service and satisfaction.
By following these principles, Arizona Awnings was able to withstand the Great Depression, World War II, a number of recessions and many other challenging economic and political times over the years.
In 1989, the current owners purchased Arizona Awnings from the founding family and after 80 years of operation, are still making an outstanding quality product at a fair price. Our customers have and always will be our top priority, just as they were eight decades ago.
We have been Arizona's Awning Company for the past 80 years and we plan on being here for 80 more by maintaining our commitment to quality and customer service.
