What’s the WeatherPort story?

Company founder Clayton H. ‘Sweede” Hansen needed a structure rugged enough to protect his vehicles from Colorado’s ice and snow. Dissatisfied with the products on the market in 1968, the entrepreneurial Hansen decided he could do better, and he started Hansen WeatherPort Corp. Although WeatherPort has continued to grow — we provide handcrafted, American-made products for myriad purposes around the world — we’ve stayed true to ‘Sweede’ Hansen’s core values of running the company like a family-owned business. Our goals are providing friendly, knowledgeable service while producing the best-engineered permanent and portable fabric buildings on the market.
