Tarpo's mission statement:
Tarpo has over 25 years worth of experience in the tent and shelter solutions industry with our client base spanning across various sectors. We are proud to be suppliers to some of the world's most famous brands in fashion and tourism. We supply to many NGOs, UN Agencies and Relief organizations across the African continent and beyond.
With three factories in East Africa, we are by far the largest tent manufacturer in the Great Lakes region. We have a team of in-house engineers and technical specialists constantly working on product improvements and ensuring that client specified designs conform to safety standards, both international and our own. We carefully analyze designs and materials for aesthetic appeal and put passion and pride into every job we deliver.
Our staff are well versed in local climate conditions and are available to advise you on how different materials will perform under different climates.
Our three factories in Nairobi, Arusha and Kampala are constantly in touch to balance capacity and material requirements giving us a strategic edge to deliver quality products as quickly as possible.
Tarpo's experience in the design and construction of tented camps is extensive to all types of camp: permanent, semi permanent & mobile.
We have two divisions, manufacturing and rental. Our rental division is operated under our sister company, Safariquip, offering small scale safari operators and outdoor event organizers an opportunity to rent out equipment on short to long term contracts.
With over two decades worth of experience working in harsh conditions we are trusted suppliers to NGOs and Relief organizations who have activities in remote areas. Collaboration with the different not-for-profits has resulted in a number of innovative shelter solutions and accessories, including hospital beds and portable water storage solutions. Reliability, trust and short lead times are increasingly becoming more and more important to this market and we are always adapting our operations to suit these requirements.
