Although 2013 has been somewhat of a quiet hurricane season. Tarps are still high in demand due to aggressive weather and regular usage. Many times during hurricane or in the event of a tornado certain items are hard to come by, tarps, being one of them. A leading US tarp company, Tarps Plus plans to solve that issue by strategically placing their location along with heavy inventory. The tarp company plans to stockpile over 1 million tarps at its new 10 acre tarp facility in Weir, Texas. The town of Weir is above the hurricane stricken zones and below tornado alley, but close to both which makes it the ideal location to supply emergency supplies.
Tarps Plus CEO and founder Michael Stein told us, “Whenever there has been large-scale natural disasters, we have seen a bottleneck of getting the tarps to the disaster area. Our new Texas facility puts us right in the middle of the action to get tarps to people in need fast at a cheaper rate.”
In the event of a hurricane or tornado, poly tarps have become an essential item. The plastic tarp is used to cover roofs that have been torn off by the aggressive winds. Many times hurricane or tornado victims are left without coverage due to hardware stores being sold out. Many stores do not have the capability of stockpiling hundreds of thousands of one item. This is where specialty stores and businesses have their advantage.
Companies like Tarps Plus only have to deal with one type of item which usually means lower cost and more choices within the product category. Many times the government steps in and assists aid in the case of an extreme emergency, most likely the products are still purchased by these vendors.
