Aero was founded in Indianapolis in 1944 by Paul Tuerk as Aero Canvas Products. Initially a manufacturer of tarps, the company soon expanded its product line and achieved a reputation as a leader in the development of accessories for the transportation industry. Aero’s history as a leader in the industry spans from introducing the first aluminum stake Side Kit to rolling out the first sliding tarp system, the Conestoga, in 1984.
Today, Aero is enjoying its third generation of Tuerk family leadership under company Chief Executive Officer Jim Tuerk, with a history of steady sales growth. In December 2004, the Indianapolis headquarters moved into a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with over 140,000 sq. ft. of space. Additional locations are operated in Omaha and Valley, Nebraska; and Kent, Ohio.
