Our sewing department cuts and sews together fabric for awnings, canopies, shades, outdoor curtains, and custom covers. GPS is has the reputation for being able to create the highest quality products in the marketplace.

GPS Specialty Construction, Inc. was founded by three fellow sailboat racers in December of 1994. Not only had these three men spent years using metal spars and fabric sails to propel themselves around the waterways, they also worked for companies that built products made from metals and fabric. So after working for various other entities for a dozen years each, Michael Gillum (G), the design and fabric expert, Johann "Hans" Peter (P), the metals and welding expert, and Mark Skvarla (S) a man with a management and contracting background, formed GPS.

As of December of 2009 the team has been together for over fifteen (15) years and has produced some of the most recognizable awning work in Northern California.

For the past fifteen years, GPS Specialty Construction's owners have been actively involved in every aspect of the jobs they create. They meet with the customers and design the project. All three owners work collectively to generate an estimate with an eye for creating the best product within an affordable budget. And, the owners will then participate in and oversee all phases of fabrication and installation. It is not unusual to see an owner of this company out installing awnings with the crew.

GPS is a member of the Better Business Bureau, the Western Canvas Products Association, the Industrial Fabrics Association International, the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association and the National Federation of Independent Business.
