Traube Awning, an awnings and shade provider based in Hartford, Ill., announced its return to family ownership after a 10-year hiatus with Steve Traube, a third-generation descendant of the founding family acquiring the company. Traube announced the partnership with Scott Clifford who will bring his experience in finance and operations as a former CFO of a Fortune 500 Company to Traube Awning. Together, they plan to expand the business into a local and national leader offering a wide range of products and services to a diverse clientele.

“I’m thrilled to bring Traube Awning back to the family,” says Traube, owner of Traube Tents & Structures and now Traube Awning. “For generations, the Traube name has been synonymous with quality products and exceptional customer service. I’m committed to upholding that legacy and taking Traube Awning to even greater heights.”

Traube Awning and Traube Tent operated as separate divisions under The Traube Canvas umbrella until 1996 when the company was officially split into two entities.  John and Steve Traube took control of the tent rental business as Traube Tent and their cousin formed Traube Awning. Traube Awning was sold to an ownership group outside the family in 2013.

The company plans to expand its product offerings and invest in new technologies. “Our combined expertise in small business growth and C-suite corporate experience positions us well to manage the tremendous opportunity we see in the commercial and residential markets for Traube Awning,” says Clifford.  “The local and national markets are in need of quality manufacturers based in the U.S. and we intend to become the go-to source for these custom products.”

Founded in 1938, Traube Awning Company has a long history of serving the community. The company is known for its products, craftsmanship and customer service. Traube Awning offers a wide variety of awnings and shade solutions for both residential and commercial properties from retractable awnings and patio covers to architectural elements and commercial canopies.
