GRANDCHAMP STRUCTURE TENT DESIGN
Grandchamp Structure tent Design specializes in making commercial tent and selling clear span tent, including four-season tents, structure tent and marquees.
At Grandchamp, quality is defined by innovation, solidity, efficiency and professionalism. We build the client experience on these qualities–from the very first try.
We’ve been renting tents for more than 30 years, and in that time we’ve slowly shifted toward large-scale manufacturing of fabric structures.
A North American industry leader since 1985, Grandchamp has continued to adapt to the ever-changing market.
The company established its reputation for excellence through its tent rental service, providing premium-quality structures for corporate events, weddings and private functions. Continuing to search out new possibilities in the market, Grandchamp quickly identified the need for a second division specialized in manufacturing structure tents.
The result was Grandchamp Structure Design, a company specialized in manufacturing four-season tents, including Clear Span tents. The company can now offer specialized tents that are much more versatile, without compromising on functionality and structural stability standards. Grandchamp Structure Design manufactures tents suitable for all types of terrain, and that can also stand up to the region’s varied weather conditions. They can support heavy loads of snow and withstand winds of up to 140 km/h.
In addition to rental options, Grandchamp offers custom-built solutions for clients wishing to purchase a tent: structure tents tailored to their specific needs, whether it be in terms of width, length or even height—anything is possible!
Grandchamp Structure Design has designed and manufactured structure tents and marquees for several years now. The company works to remain at the cutting edge, pushing the boundaries of expectations.
Working alongside its manufacturing department, the R&D team is continually improving structure tent products to meet client needs, as well as fine tuning installation.
Grandchamp structure tents are made with compatible, interchangeable parts—modular systems—allowing for a wide range of assembly options using the smallest number of parts possible. The company has also developed a Bolt-On attachment system, an innovation that offers perfect efficiency through simplicity. All structures can be assembled with a single tool and bolt. Grandchamp Structure Design is continually developing and improving its structure tents.
To remain at the forefront of the industry, the company has invested over a million dollars in innovation in recent years, funding the purchase of major equipment and software as well as new procedures, training and the expansion of work spaces. These funds have also allowed us to reorganize production, and have made it possible for the company to reinvent existing procedures in order to reach new heights.
In doing so, Grandchamp sets itself apart from its competitors and remains a forerunner in the structure tent market. In recognition of this, among other things, the company was awarded the prestigious “Distinction 2016” prize in the manufacturing category.
DEVELOPING A LEAN CULTURE
To maintain the company’s vision—to become and maintain a position as the largest Canadian structure tent rental, manufacturing and export company—and to achieve its goal of approaching the challenges it faces with creative solutions, the first step is to build a solid foundation. This is why every employee adheres to the lean management approach, promoting synergy between departments.
Whether it be during R&D, production or even installation, all company members work together. The common goal is continual improvement, of the product offered to the client but also to their work environment. Lean management is a way to structure and standardize the work of employees in order to improve efficiency.
The lean management approach promotes working in a clean, well-organized environment, which boosts employee motivation. Everyone at Grandchamp can now focus on the company’s three key values: efficiency, stability and innovation.
