In 1950 Robert Gehringer, a WWII veteran, decided to take the skills he learned in the South Pacific while serving for the United States Air Force and start his very own tarpaulin business. Beginning in a small garage on 8th street in center city Reading Pennsylvania; Robert only had small sewing machine, a grommet tool, and hammer. From there he built the strong foundation for what Gehringer Canvas has become today. Our company takes pride in manufacturing the most popular styles of tarpaulins for any kind of trucking business.
