Baltimore Shade & Awning was founded in 1917 as a two-man company, in Baltimore, Md, and manufactured and sold awnings and shades. In 1951, Harry Hansen, Sr. purchased the company and increased the product line to include custom canvas work such as: bags, boat, truck and car covers. In 1954, Harry created Baltimore Canvas Products, Inc. and moved the company to W. Franklin St in Baltimore.
Rick Hansen, Harry’s son and the current president, took over Baltimore Canvas in the 1970’s. Rick is an expert in design and fabrication. He designs from an aesthetic and structural stand point and has created many functional, custom awnings and canvas products. He is always willing to provide advice and develop plans together.
