In order to provide a turnkey camp facility, including a Military Field Hospital, for 1200 South African National Defence Force soldiers in the Great Lakes Region of Africa, Canvas and Tent Manufacturing embarked on a strategic alliance with Weatherhaven Canada in 2002.
The rapid growth and continued collaboration of both companies revealed a definite need to formalise the partnership. This resulted in the establishment of Redeployable Camp Systems (Pty) Ltd and Weatherhaven Africa (Pty) Ltd—previously known as Redeployable Camp Systems Int. (Pty) Ltd.
Together, Canvas and Tent Manufacturing and Weatherhaven Canada have more than 70 years combined experience in the industry.
