Serving the DFW Metroplex Since 1929
"We are not the best because we are the oldest, we are the oldest because we are the best!"
It all started in 1929 when Mr. R.W. Clanton founded what we now know as Clanton's Quality Awning Co.. This journey began under the name "The Shade Shop" at the bustling corner of Haskell and McKinney in Dallas, Texas. Over the years, the name evolved, and in 1936, it settled as "Clanton's Quality Awning Co." A Clanton family member was the driving force behind the scenes until 1971 when CBF Industries entered the picture.
In May of 1975, the reins of this remarkable business were handed to the capable hands of Calvin and Clara Walker, who skillfully ran it until 2002. Then, Curt Richmond stepped in, bringing a wealth of expertise to complement his other business ventures. To this day, the Walker family remains actively involved in our day-to-day operations.
Our manufacturing hub at 4612 South Buckner Blvd, Dallas, Texas 75227, stands as a testament to our commitment. It was constructed by the Walkers in 1981, and in March 1982, we proudly moved in. We've grown since the construction of that building in 1982, and we're now located at 1251 Exchange Dr Richardson, TX 75081. We extend a warm invitation to come and witness the time-honored craftsmanship that goes into our awnings and canvas products. We're keeping the tradition alive!
