About Us

Our History

Merrillville Awning is a leading Awning and Canopy manufacturer and specialty contractor,  serving the Midwest Region for nearly 40 years.

Founded in 1985, we progressed from a 500 square foot space to our  current 15,000 square foot state of the art facility located just 25 miles south of Chicago.

We design, engineer, fabricate, and install commercial canvas and metal awnings, canopies, and shade structures of all varieties for every kind of business imaginable, from retail to industrial.

Our focus is strictly commercial, working with business owners, managers, architects , general contractors, and property managers from all across the country, providing premium quality products and excellence in our trade.

Our highly skilled employees are creative  designers and master craftsmen. Many have more than 20 years of experience with our company and that is why we have won numerous awards for our work within our trade associations.
