Leading Los Angeles tarps company, Tarps Plus has brought in their annual tarp shipments for 2013. The shipment of poly tarps and canvas tarps features new sizes and grades keeping up with the theme of expanding every year. Some of the additions are white poly tarps in extra-large sizes for athletic field covers. Larger canvas tarps have been added to the catalog to satisfy the painting industry and construction. The first quarter of 2013 has shown a rise in construction activity Leslie a higher demand on items like canvas tarps and construction covers.
Tarps plus sales manager Steve Benson says, “it is essential for us to continue to grow and expand our tarps catalog to satisfy our customers and be the industry leader in all types of tarps and covers. Variety is our strong suit, so we are constantly adding to our poly tarp and canvas tarp inventory.”
The tarp company plans several shipments of new tarp styles, grades, sizes and materials to offer their customers this year. The company says the prices of tarps will remain the same, although the prices of oil have risen. The price of poly tarps and canvas tarps are directly related to the cost of oil due to the material that is needed to build it. Resin is an oil-based product which is an essential element of poly tarps. The canvas tarps are cotton-based material which is also reliant on the price of oil.
Most of the new stock tarps will be located at the Los Angeles and Texas annexes of Tarps Plus. The majority of hurricane tarp covers will be stored in Texas, strategically placing them there for hurricane season. The Los Angeles tarps company plans to open a Florida warehouse in 2015 to help further their expansion.
The Los Angeles tarps company Tarps Plus expand their inventory.
Like most leading companies, Tarps Plus finds itself with slightly flawed or overstocked items now and then. One of the items that tarps plus specializes in our baseball infield tarp covers. The large polyethylene covers are rolled onto a pallet and shipped to schools every day. Sometimes there are small imperfections in the material and when customers are paying thousands of dollars for a perfect product they do not want to see imperfections. So what does a company do when they have a $3000 product with a slight imperfection? They donated to a company or service that these the product but can’t afford it. That is exactly what tarps plus is doing, the tarp company has decided to donate a 170×170 baseball infield cover to a local Texas school. The imported Chinese tarps were delivered last month and one of the tarps had a slight tear on the outer.Tarps of these sizes are very specialized and can only have one or two types of uses. The main use for these large tarps are to cover football or baseball fields.
Tarps Plus CEO and founder Michael Stein says,”No company likes to see damaged goods, but when you can do something positive with them it makes you feel better. We are more than happy to donate the baseball field tarp to one of our local schools.”
Most baseball field covers are comprised of polyethylene. Baseball tarps are usually the highest and demand between February and June.

There was an overabundant amount of stock at Tarps Plus and management was wondering what to do with the excess canvas tarps and tarp tents that were on the shelves. The company distributes poly tarps, truck tarps and various other types of canvas tarps

internationally. They came up with a unique idea, why not donate the tarps to local schools and that is how “Tarps For Kids” was born. So, tarps plus fills up the truck with a 30 x 30 canvas tarp and a 10′ x 10′ instant tarp tent. The tarp is laid out on to the school parking lot. Paints and supplies are then laid out around the tarp. First children put their hand prints on the bottom of the tarp tent and then the teachers put their hand prints around the top of the tarp tent. The tent is then removed and a white 30×30 canvas tarp is then used for free-form painting, basically anything that the children and teachers want to paint together. The tarp and tent are donated to the school. The tent is used for school functions and the tarp is used for assemblies and decoration purposes. Both pieces signify unity between children and teachers as well as an aesthetically pleasing piece of artwork.
Tarps Plus CEO and founder, Michael Stein stated,” We are very proud of the tarps for kids program. It’s one thing to be happy about getting rid of some excess stock. But the fact that it is going towards a good cause like this makes it more fun.”
Tarps Plus plans to organize the tarps for kids program. All throughout Southern California and eventually expanding throughout the whole state.
