We are expanding our catalog of tarps to find the niche markets and satisfy specific users of tarps. One of our new product lines are tree and shrub covers for the winter months. These tarps help protect the plants in the harsh winter weather and enable them to grow more easily. Our other
new line of tarps are the dumb truck tarps. The specialized hardcovers enable truck drivers to cover their load and uncover the reload with manual and electronic mechanisms. Many of our established brand tarps will also receive a packaging facelift for department stores. The tarps will be on display at the Tarps plus retail stores in Los Angeles and Austin Texas. The range of type will span poly tarps, canvas tarps, hay tarps and various truck tarps. We also have plans to distribute the tarps at Lowe's hardware stores by the end of 2013.
We are happy to announce the new location of our second Tarps Plus retail store. Weir Texas will be the home of the new Tarps Plus cover superstore. The name of the store will go by our main incorporation name Abadak. The state-of-the-art facility will have a 25,000 square-foot warehouse and a 5000 square-foot showroom to display an infinite amount of tarps and covers. The store will have over 800 feet of frontage on Highway FM 971. The mayor Mervyn Walker was quoted saying "we are happy to have you and excited to have a place to get tarps".
The town of Weir is located in Williamson County, where many farmers can use the hay tarps that Tarps Plus supplies. Highway FM 971 will also serve as a great outlet for truck tarps for truckers. The completion and opening of the new facility is scheduled for May 2013.
Truck loads of hurricane tarps were sent to Texas as part of Tarps Plus' expansion of emergency relief. A new facility has been stock piling the tarps in order to supply the Gulf region rapidly. The centrally located annex enables Tarps Plus to distribute tarps faster and for less cost. The blue poly tarps are shrink wrapped on 4x4 foot pallets and ready for immediate distribution. Hurricane season starts June 1st and runs through November 30th and although the season is over tarps will continue to be stock piled in Texas for the 2013 hurricane season.
Tarps Plus will be handing out thousands of poly tarps to the Los Angeles homeless this Thanksgiving holiday. The Los Angeles Mission will be holding it's annual benefit for the homeless. Many people living on the streets suffer hypothermia during the winter months and the tarps help prevent damp weather from making them even colder.
The Los Angeles Mission also will be serving thousands of meals and blankets for people in need. The even takes place Wednesday November 21st 2012. Located at: 303 East 5th Street, Los Angeles California 90013.
Tarps Plus, The LA County Fire Department, Sheriff’s Department, C.E.R.T., and Mental Health Department, as well as the California Highway Patrol, Urban Search & Rescue, and Antelope Valley Preppers were at the AV Disaster Preparedness Fair last Saturday. The fair promotes awareness for emergencies in the Southern California area. Tarps Plus displayed poly tarps and various types of emergency covers. The Palmdale based company was there to show how to use the tarps in case of a natural disaster as well as assist the other agencies. If you would like to find out more about tarps for emergencies such as hurricanes or earthquakes, please call: 1-800-838-3057.
As hurricane Sandy rocks the eastern seaboard, Tarps Plus has been very active with supplying poly tarps to all the stricken areas. Haiti was hit very hard. Several shipments of economy grade blue and brown poly tarps were sent for roof damage. Many areas along the entire east coast have received shipments of light duty poly tarps for emergency use and protection and various applications. Main head quarters for Tarps Plus are now in California and Texas to assist in situations like these. Large amounts of tarps can be distributed from either location within 72 hours.
As the demand for tarps during hurricane season becomes more prevalent, Tarps Plus has decided to move its main headquarters to Granger Texas. Granger is approximately 20 miles outside of Austin. The new location enables tarps to be distributed in the Gulf region quickly and at a lower cost. Granger was strategically chosen because it is centrally located and it's safety. The area is just below Tornado Alley and north enough from the gulf not to be effected by any hurricane damage. The new facility will rest on 10 acres of land that will offer plenty of growth for Tarps Plus' expansion plans. The new location will bring over 30 new jobs to the area as well as many opportunities for service related businesses in the area.
Dozens of containers of hurricane tarps will be shipped to the new location and the end of October 2012. The tarps are pre-packaged on pallets and ready to move on a moments notice.
Like all factories every once in a while our tarp factory makes a mistake. Recently our tarp factory made our green mesh tarps too bright. The color does not match the green that we usually keep in stock. So, what are we going to do with these bright green tarps? Sell them at a major discount of course. If you want to get a great deal on the best quality mesh tarps, go to our mesh tarps section and click on the "Bright Green Mesh Tarps" page.
Tarps Plus has been a division of Abadak Inc. for many years and now people will have a place to shop for Tarps Plus brand tarps and all kinds of covers at the Abadak retail store. The Abadak retail store will be located at the main head quarters and Abadak's warehouse. The entire Tarps Plus line of tarps will be sold out of the store as well as other divisions of Abadak such as the Ace Canopy line canopies and pop up tents.
Originally the plans for the retail store were to go by another name, "Everything Covers" but we discovered that people were disappointed and that they really love Abadak and what it stands for. Abadak is an acronym standing for A Better Atmosphere Dedicating All Kind. The mission of Abadak is to create a culture and line of products that help people live a better life.
Tarps Plus announced today that they will be designing a particular type of poly tarp for hurricane victims. People with damaged roofs needing emergency coverage will be the target market. The tarp will be in the vein of self help tarps to enable the application of the tarp as well. Many people are stuck with torn roofs after a hurricane and need waterproof tarps to cover the damage to make sure additional water does not enter the home or building. Emergency services have shown great interest in the tarps. Agencies like FEMA, the red Cross and the USACE all show a demand for the plastic tarps.
The new tarps will be in stock at the end of October. For more information about the new Tarps Plus hurricane tarps, please call: 1-800-838-3057.
New Orleans Louisiana - As the seven year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina nears, another hurricane has entered the gulf and approaches New Orleans. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued a state of emergency and has urged residents in low lying areas to leave ahead of the storm. Tarps Plus has issued several orders of poly tarps and hurricane covers of various types to the area. Tarps Plus CEO Michael Stein says, "We stock pile a large number of blue poly tarps for situations just like this and are ready to send them out at a moments notice. Tarps Plus works closely with the National Guard, FEMA, USACE and the Red Cross to get tarps and supplies to people need after the storm hits.
The National Hurricane Center has issuied hurricane warnings all along the the Florida Panhandle, Louisiana and Mississippi. Tarps Plus has committed to get tarps to hurricane stricken areas with 72 hours.
The AV fair is going on for the next 10 days and Tarps Plus is there with the kick off of Everything Covers. There are tarps and covers of all kinds as well as canopies and tents. The booth is also promoting the grand opening of Everything Covers, the tarps and covers retail store. The AV Fair is located in Palmdale California where the headquarters of Tarps Plus is located.

We have been a online supplier of tarps for many years. No we will be offering a place to get tarps in certain local areas. Our main facility in Palmdale California. Now people in the Palmdale area can get a tarp right away and see all our other tarp products first hand. The retail store will be 2000 sq. feet of all types of tarps and covers. The store will be in front of a 25,000 sq. foot warehouse filed with all kinds of tarps and covers to choose from. The grand opening is September 8th.

In efforts for faster shipping times, Tarps Plus will be opening a satellite warehouse in the Los Angeles area. The warehouse will mainly handle direct import and emergency shipments. Shipments for California customers needing tarps fast will also be handled out of the new warehouse. The new facility will specifically be located Paramount. The opening date of the new Tarps Plus hub will be, Wednesday August 1st. The address and phone number of the new tarp station will be sent to all Tarps Plus customers via email on or before July 31st.
The date for the opening of the new Tarps Plus headquarters has been set for January 7th 2013. The new Texas facility will be a state of the art warehouse distribution facility, equipped with over 4000 square feet of office and 30,000 square feet of warehouse and multiple loading docks, all set on a 10 acre lot to allow for future expansion. The official celebration for the grand opening will be Saturday January 26th. The central state will enable shipments of tarps to be delivered faster for customers in need of emergencies as well as regular customers wanting fast service. Many times during a hurricane, large shipments of poly tarps are needed but tarps suppliers can only get the shipments out so fast. Tarps Plus has strategically placed the new facility for this reason. The location is outside of the rim of most hurricane zones and tornado alley. In the event of large scale hurricane, truck loads of tarps can now be brought into the gulf region immediately. More than 90% of the Atlantic based hurricanes hit the Gulf Of Mexico region.
Wind turbine energy will also be a part of the new facility. The turbines will supply green energy as well as act as a stand by generator that can be kicked in in the event of power outages.

Friday June 1st, was the first day of the 2012 hurricane season and as usual tarps will be in high demand. We have loaded up inventory on all our hurricane tarps to withstand a moderate to heavy season. Reports by the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University recently just raised the number of storms that might hit the Atlantic ocean but still see a moderate season. The NOAA - National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration also foresees a near normal Atlantic hurricane season. None the less, Tarps Plus will have several containers of hurricane tarps on hand and ready to be shipped out at a moments notice.
The tarps are set on pallets and meet all U.S. government standards. The official hurricane season starts on June 1st and ends November 3oth.

Every year we give out thousands of tarps to the homeless during Thanksgiving time and set out to give a little more each year. We have just confirmed tarp drives in several cities across America. Last year we celebrated Thanksgiving with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the L.A. Mission. We gave out over 2000 tarps to people who are living on the streets. The tarps are essential during the cold and rainy month and help to prevent hypothermia. We have just confirmed that we will be at the Mission again this year to celebrate the 2012 Thanksgiving holiday and help the needy at the same time. Tarps Plus we also being giving out tarps in New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago.
Tarps are not the only supplies that are needed. We would love to have other companies and contributors join us. If you would like to be a part of of the Tarps Plus annual holiday tarps drive, please call at at: 1-800-838-3057.
