To satisfy increasing demand for their tent products in the event rental business, Rainier Industries has completed the acquisition of The SEC Group in Wilsonville, Ore. “This is a great marriage of two of the tent industry’s leading players,” said Rainer President Scott Campbell. “Spencer and I have worked together for decades, so combining our strengths made perfect sense.”
“Rainier’s wide range of manufacturing capabilities allows us to greatly expand our products and services. The best tent product in the industry just got better!” said Spencer Etzel, owner of The SEC Group. Rainer will continue to manufacture product in Seattle, while The SEC Group will remain in the Wilsonville facility. Rainier plans to start shipping The SEC Group product from Seattle immediately.
Founded in 1896, Rainier Industries began providing tents and supplies to prospectors in the Alaskan gold rush. Today, it has evolved into a diverse manufacturer of a variety of products including yurts, tents, awning and screen systems and industrial fabric products, as well as sports, retail and tradeshow graphics to regional, national and Fortune 500 companies.
The SEC Group has been designing, manufacturing and managing superior product lines for the tenting industry for more than three decades. Focusing on tent systems, tent liners, tools and accessories that set the standard for innovation, ease of use and quality, it has become the provider of choice for tent renters and users that want to maximize value of their tenting investment.
