GenTent Safety Canopies has announced it has signed an OEM agreement with Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment, enabling the latter company to offer a branded, color-coordinated GenTent system, fit to its open frame portable generator and fully encased inverter models.
GenTent’s canopies are designed to keep generator operators safe by protecting the electrical panels while running in inclement weather – including high winds, blizzard and hurricane-force precipitation, the company states. In addition, the GenTent system allows the generator to cool itself and ensure exhaust fumes are expelled to prevent buildup of carbon monoxide gasses.
“Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment has positioned themselves very strongly in the generator market these last few years. It is clear to us at GenTent that they are a company that takes safety and proper product usage seriously,” says Brian Thomas, director of sales & marketing at GenTent Safety Canopies.
“This agreement brings the GenTent line to thousands more Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment customers and continues their expansion into other consumer mindful products,” Thomas continues. “We are pleased that the generator tent product category is growing and to have Westinghouse as our newest Covered by GenTent partner.”
Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment and its custom versions of the GenTent product lines will be available through the Westinghouse online and retail sales channels with anticipated availability in May 2023, reports GenTent.
