Lou Stephenson and Roy Sullins purchased Detroit Tarpaulin in 1963. They began manufacturing and repairing truck tarps, along with their sons Guy Sullins, Don Sullins, and Tom Stephenson. Back then, Guy, Don, and Tom worked the cutting tables, the sewing and welding machines, and drove the delivery truck. They became familiar with every aspect of the manufacture of tarpaulins. Today Guy, Don and Tom are still “Hands On” owners, manufacturing tarpaulins and covers for many industrial applications. Our sales staff including Jim Pinter, Dennis Trezona, Jeff Stephenson, Jesse Sullins and Nick Zalewski, also have a long history in our company with over a century’s experience.
