History Behind Kaplan Tarps

Kaplan Tarps and Cargo Controls began manufacturing tarps and covers over a century ago in Williamsport PA. In the years since we have come a long way and in 2009 we expanded into a new location in Manchester CT. Despite the inevitability of growth and change, it has always been our tradition to bring the highest quality to our manufacturing. It is that same tradition that has helped carry us for over a century, and we have no doubt that it will carry us forward for many years to come.


Whether you need flatbed tarps or a large order for your fleet, an athletic field cover or someone to tackle your toughest custom job, Kaplan Tarps has the years of experience and customer input to manufacture each client’s product just right for its application. We manufacture most of our own products in house which affords us the flexibility to better customize a solution for each individual client. It is that combination of knowledge, flexibility, and providing greater quality for the cost that makes Kaplan a great choice for your custom covering and cargo control needs.

Some additional examples of both custom and stock items that we specialize in are as follows: covers and tarps for all industries, tarping systems for dump trucks, open-top trailers and dumpsters, privacy fencing, pallet covers, stockpile covers, shelter covers, and gym floor covers. Please don’t forget that we will work with you on all of your sewn, sealed, and other custom textile products.


Kaplan has a full-service shop offering tarp and tarping system repairs, and installation services.


You can pick up your order at our facility, let us install it for you, or have your order delivered to you. Kaplan Tarps ships every day via UPS and several LTL trucking companies.
