What Makes Us NEW!
N.E.W. Tent Manufacturing has been in business for over 20 years in the Green Bay area and has sold thousands of party tents all over the world. In 2014, the current owners, led by President/CEO Tony Ehrbar, purchased the business with the goal of expanding into new commercial tent lines, providing the high quality products and offering unmatched customer service.
While N.E.W. officialy stands for NorthEast Wisconsin, we also want it to signify a NEW way of doing business in the event rental industry. Here are some of the areas we think makes us NEW and DIFFERENT!
Custom made :: All our tents are made-to-order, which means you can pretty much choose your finishings and tent design - just like ordering a personalized drink from Starbucks. So if you want a sectional, pink, 20x40 frame tent with stainless steel hardware - we can make it for you (BTW - we love to support breast cancer research - ask us about pink tent discounts!). Normally, custom-made carries with it a price premium. However, at NEW Tent, it allows us to keep our inventory carrying costs down and our supply chain extremely lean, so we can actually offer our tents at a lower price than our competition. While this means our lead times is typically a few weeks - we have buffer in our manufacturing process to fit in last minute orders and can typically turn around a rush order (last minute customer order or if you tent got destroyed due to weather) in time for you to have a new tent in your hands for the weekend, so you don't lose a job.
We are our own customer :: As owners of a successfull tent rental business (www.elitetentrentals.com), all of our tents are purchased from NEW. This means all our tents are continually "battle" tested by our fantastic rental team - providing us with great input on new designs and functionality. Additionally, all NEW employees have tent setup experience as part of their training process to ensure their knowledge of tents expands beyond the walls of our manufacturing facility.
We want to be your partner :: We think a successful partnership is built upon a mutually beneficial relationship. As such, we are always looking for ways to help our customers grow their businesses. This includes:
- Referral bonuses for customers looking to help fund their future tent purchases
- Dealer opportunities to make supplemental income by selling our tents
- Reasonable price points to allow you to pay-off your tents in fewer rentals and put money back into your pocket.
- FREE business advice for individuals just starting out in the rental industry or rental businesses looking to expand their business through new marketing/advertising avenues or established businesses interested in implementing new technologies to improve their operations. (Tony would much rather spend the whole day on the phone talking about running a tent rental business, than working on his to do list)
- Useful content :: We strive to provide useful content to our customers through our blog and newletters - including the newly developed 'Tent Rental Corner' where we provide an overview of one or two technologies we have used to grow our rental business.
American made :: This means we are supporting our local economy and workforce - which is very important to us. For our customers, it means your tent is only a few days away from you, if you need something last minute.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at any time with questions or to place an order. We are always happy to send sample party tents or vinyl to ensure you are happy with the quality of our tents and accessories.
