Idaho Canvas Products - Idaho Falls, ID
“Idaho Canvas Products has
been the beneficiary of the outstanding services and personnel of the SBDC and the
Idaho Innovation Center. We have been taught, advised, and challenged at all
business levels to think smarter and broader.”
Idaho Canvas Products, Inc., located in Idaho Falls was formally launched over 84
years ago in 1939. They originally manufactured agricultural truck and farm
equipment covers and tarps along with hunting and wall tents. In 2001, Lorin and
Heather Rigby purchased Idaho Canvas Products (ICP) and began to methodically
modernize, expand, and diversify the company.
Over time, services evolved to also include custom covers for boats, recreational
vehicles, and spas along with sign bags and awnings. Company growth was
hampered by limited manufacturing space and a serious lack of parking space. As
a result, ICP could not provide covers and support for larger boats and RVs.
That all changed 2023 when the Rigbys finished the construction of a brand new
facility that is twice a big with significantly more parking space. It has transformed
their business and opportunities to serve clientele. Under their leadership, Idaho
Canvas has grown to become the largest and dominant manufacturer of coverings
in Eastern Idaho and surrounding areas.
They are a classic example of a successful hands-on approach in taking business and customer support to a whole new level. This is all evidenced by their stellar customer reviews.
