Established in 1949 near downtown Ft. Lauderdale, Florida by Mr. Henry Hoover, Hoover Awning quickly gained ground as the leading fabric awning manufacturer for Broward County. After many years of unwavering quality and impeccable service, Mr. Hoover sold Hoover Awning to Thomas Carroll in 1979. Thomas Carroll (a 3rd generation awning craftsman), who already had an established reputation & proven track record in the awning industry was a quick study to the challenges of the South Florida climate.
