Out West Awning Co. has been a staple of the Pikes Peak Region since 1903. The company provides commercial and residential awning services to clients throughout El Paso, Teller and Pueblo counties. More than 100 years ago the company was both an awning and outfitting company, gearing up hunters, hikers, homeowners and business-owners with everything they need – from backpacks to tents to patio awnings to entrance canopies. Today, the locally-owned and operated business keeps up on all of the cutting-edge products and technologies in the awning industry, and is a Charter member of the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association. 

“We are excited that after more than a century business continues to boom at Out West Awning, and as we expand we see a prime opportunity to partner up with deck, pergola, siding and other talented installation crews in order to offer a more complete set of services to our commercial and residential clients,” says Richard Forward, President of Out West Awning Co. “An awning is a great way to wrap up a new construction or home improvement project and it’ll help our partnering companies’ margins overall.” Not only would the partnership be mutually beneficial for the contractors, it would streamline the process for clients – instead of them having to call a different installer for each and every project. The company already works with several general contractors in the region, who recognize the superior quality of Out West Awning Co.’s product. 

“We stay ahead of the curve and consistently keep track of trends and manufacturing techniques,” says Forward. “Many do not look into the marketplace deep enough to understand what makes an excellent awning versus an okay one versus a weak one. Good, better and best applies to every industry and ours isn’t an exception.” Forward is very particular about how he builds his awnings, and has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars on top-notch equipment and inventory, which can be viewed at his showroom at 1865 N. Academy Blvd. 

The company is seeking to establish partnerships with skilled commercial and residential installers to extend a range of services to its valued customers, including engineered shade sail structures, maintenance-free aluminum walkway covers and more for businesses. On the residential end, home improvement projects include retractable awnings, stationary patio awnings, window awnings as well as solar management. 

Teaming up with Out West Awning Co. provides contractors with an edge in the booming Colorado Springs economy. From the graphic design to material quality, the company is at the top of its game. The seams of the awnings are welded minimizing sewn seams, which affords greater life out of the product. In addition, the materials offered are water repellant and time tested in our particular climate. They offer a full spectrum of materials and processes to accommodate your graphics needs for your business identification.

Out West Awning is also thrilled to announce that they are designing their own line of retractable screens, which the company will have sole possession of. The screens will be available in more than 140 colors; and Forward plans to have them available by late April. It’s an exciting time to become a part of and grow with Out West Awning Co., whether as a client or business partner. “You have to move quickly in this business, and offering our quality product as an option of something to install is highly appealing,” says Forward.
