The Tarpo Team – Passionate experts in the tent industry

We are not just another player in the tents and soft roof shelter space. We are a family that is made up of people who are passionate about their contribution to the industry and genuinely care about your success and the success of the company. Each member of our team lives and breathes this industry, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that they’re willing to share.

At TARPO, people are our greatest assets. Our ability to deliver the quality products and services that we do starts with our constellation of rock stars: the Tarpo Team. These are people with an affinity and passion for the business, which is critical to who we are and what we do.

Our team is a melting pot of people from a variety of backgrounds, expertise, personalities, age groups, and cultures, bringing a creative and broad perspective to the table. We have a dedicated sales and marketing team, a highly skilled and experienced production team, and an exceptionally supportive office staff, some of whom have been with the company for over a decade. Our impressive engineering department comprises a skill set of structural, civil, textile, mechanical, and soon, membrane structures engineers.

As unique as we all are, individually, we share the same values and passion. Each and every member of our staff represents the spirit of our company: innovative, adventurous, and dependable. And in the middle of it all is the glue that holds us all together, our highly experienced, devoted leadership team, comprised of a strong and ambitious group of individuals, who continuously seek to push the company to greater heights.

Being a family-owned business, we value family collaborations and have some entire families as members of staff. However, no matter what, we run an ethical hiring process. Everyone is hired after a thorough evaluation of their reference, and we ensure that anyone looking to join our team undergoes the rigorous hiring process that ensures every candidate that joins us fits into our valued company culture.

Mary and Nilesh, worked together for 30 years

We genuinely care about our team members and are committed to continuously building a company that inspires people to be better versions of themselves and do great things together; therefore, we maintain an engaging, and challenging work environment that fosters loyalty, long-term commitment, and the freedom to express ideas authentically. Our company culture is one of collaboration, growth, and continuous improvement and we go to great lengths to provide all kinds of support like training, coaching, and mentoring programs as well as access to all the required resources for an effective and efficient team cohesion.

While we take our work very seriously, it’s not all work and no play. At TARPO, our mission is to achieve our goals and objectives of delivering quality in products and in service, while at the same time, having fun. To accomplish this, we deliberately inject some bits of enjoyment and positive affirmations into our work whenever we can. We also plan fun retreats and activities for the entire company, and from time to time, plan to get together outside of the office to socialize and have some fun.

Whether you chose to work with us or for us, you’re selecting a team of some of the best talents in the industry; the eyes and ears of the tent and soft roof shelter industry, who love what they do. Choosing us is choosing a team that will take you places.
