A Proud History
Founded in 1919 by World War I veteran B.A. Bower, Camel Manufacturing Company got its start producing civilian canvas tarps and truck covers made from surplus Army tents. At the onset of World War II, Camel began the much-needed production of military tents and vehicle covers for the U.S. Army. The company’s dedication to the U.S. Armed Forces through several conflicts, including the Korean and Vietnam wars, led to multiple expansions and eventually a primary focus on military-related products.
Now known as Camel Expeditionary, the nation’s longest continuous producer of military tents, we also utilize that technology and expertise to provide shelter systems to commercial industries. Emergency response and disaster relief, healthcare providers, and critical infrastructure personnel are utilizing our structures for safe, comfortable, dependable housing and working conditions.
