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.

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.

There will be hundreds of vendors and rides for the kids. If you wish to attend the event, call us and we will not only tell you about everything it, we will give you a discount code so you can save money on any of our products on display.
In efforts to show our customers new ways to use tarps and share more about us, we have made a new promo video. The video was made by our very CEO Michael Stein. Before Michael Started Tarps Plus he was a film maker, so he had an advantage in making the minute and half video.
The video is first of many that will be featured on our "How To" page. The page will cover all types of uses for tarps in addition to videos of people using tarps in unique ways. The video can be viewed at the bottom of our home page. If you have an exciting way that you use tarps, submit us your video and we will post it up and share it.
You might have heard that we have plans to open a tarps
and cover retail store. Well, this is true. The stores will consist of multiple types of tarps, covers and various sheltering. Indoor niche covers will also be added to the catalog of products.
The first two locations will be in Palmdale California and Taylor Texas. Each store will be approximately 3000 square feet with additional warehouse inventory storage for larger tarps and covers. A grand opening for the Palmdale California location is planned for August 2012. The grand opening for the Taylor Texas location is planned for March 2013
We are happy to announce that Tarps Plus will be opening up a brand new state of the art facility in Taylor Texas. Our team met with the city and they were impressed with our proposal and we were impressed with what the city is offering. Texas will enable Tarps Plus to have a centrally located hub to offer fast and cheaper shipping. Our multiple locations now give us an edge over other tarp suppliers.
A dynamic back-end software has been put in place to make sure orders are organized by the location. This elaborate process insures each customer they will get the cheapest shipping rate and fastest shipping time.
