SummerSpace® is on a quest to revitalize US manufacturing in Maine.

In 1979, our founder Don Buteau had the vision of exceptional, manufactured-in-the-USA production for his new line of awning products. This not only allowed him to offer superior-quality offerings, but also created needed local jobs and helped revitalize Maine manufacturing. 20 years ago, our parent company FutureGuard® consolidated manufacturing efforts under one roof – repurposing the former 1960s Etonic® shoe factory into our existing, pristine production space.

With over 17 million dollars invested in high-tech manufacturing, we’ve built a space and a system to support our promise to you that you’ll be a customer for life. The completion of our current round of growth and expansion features a massive 400,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing area to ensure that we are able to stock, manufacture, and deliver the highest quality products for your residential and commercial needs. Now employing over 125 gifted craftsmen and women, as well as supporting SummerSpace® dealers across the country, we are proud to say that SummerSpace is a frontrunner in the manufacturing of North America retractable awnings, screen systems and aluminum canopies.
