Shur-Co buys tarp manufacturer Donovan Enterprises

Shur-Co buys tarp manufacturer Donovan Enterprises

Shur-Co recently purchased Donovan Enterprises, Inc. This acquisition brings together two leaders in the truck, trailer and specialty tarp market. Combined, the two offer 93 years of tarping experience.  

Donovan Enterprises, headquartered in Stuart, Florida, specializes in front to rear-arm driven and pull-style tarp systems for the construction and solid waste hauling industries. Donovan is also a leading exporter of these products and operates a facility in Rochester, England.

Shur-Co, LLC, invented the original Shur-Lok side-to-side roll tarp and is headquartered in Yankton, SD. The company manufactures a wide offering of tarp systems and accessories for trucks, trailers, carts and specialty equipment used in the agriculture, construction and flatbed markets. 

The combined company will operate under the name of Shur-Co, LLC, and will retain both companies’ brands and existing product lines, while also maintaining existing functions at current locations. Corporate headquarters will remain in Yankton.

Shur-Co CEO Terry Tennant states, “We couldn’t be more excited about the future.  By combining the product lines, sales teams, technical capabilities and service locations of Shur-Co®and Donovan, we will be able to provide the most comprehensive product offerings in the market and a customer service platform unequaled in the industry.”
