AZTEC TENT’S FIRST REGIONAL ACCOUNT MANAGER (RAM) RETIRES FOLLOWING
NEARLY 40 YEARS IN TENT AND RENTAL INDUSTRY

TORRANCE, Calif. (March 16, 2016) – After 10 years working devotedly as a Regional Account Manager (RAM) for Aztec Tents, Charles Scott, a resident of Canyon Lake, Texas is set to retire on April 1, 2016. Charles joined Aztec Tents after nearly three decades of experience in the sales and rental industry. During his time at Aztec Tents, he was responsible for order processing, new product demonstrations, purchasing decisions and first-time setup.

In 1982 Charles met with Aztec Tents president Chuck Miller and became the first outside sales representative for the company. In 2002, Charles moved to California and began working as the company’s Operations Manager within the rental division. In 2006, Charles became Aztec’s first RAM overseeing six states: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana, Mississippi and New Mexico.

“Charles is one of the company’s pioneers. He was our first outside sales representative, our first RAM, and is very deservedly the first to retire,” says Chuck Miller, president of Aztec Tents. “We are so incredibly grateful for Charles’ contributions to Aztec. Thanks to Charles’ dedication, we have been able to consistently provide our valued customers with dependable tent structures and outstanding customer support.”

Before working at Aztec Tents, Charles worked for a family-owned aerosol business and by the late 1970s; he ran two equipment rental stores before embarking on a career with Aztec Tents. Charles attended Texas State University (formerly known as Southwest Texas University).

“I have seen the products evolve over the years to meet the needs of the event industry and the company continues to provide quality design and manufacturing. I was also part of the team that provided the best customer service,” said Charles Scott. “I will miss all the camaraderie, we’re like one big family at Aztec Tents.

Frame Tents

Frame Tents feature a skeleton of aluminum framework and steel connectors to support the tent top. Although this style of tent is "free-standing" by design, it still must be anchored to resist wind forces. All styles of frame tents have no poles that come to the ground in the interior space of the tent.

Pole Tents

Pole tents rely on tension in the membrane to hold the shape of the tent system. These tents are supported by single or multiple centerpoles in the middle of the tent area and a series of sidepoles around the perimeter of the tent area. The tent is tensioned toward the anchoring locations commonly with a rope or ratchet strap.

Clearspan Structures

Similar to Frame Tents, these types of frame supported structures have no interior posts or columns. The unique attribute that Clearspan Structures hold is their ability to span quite large distances without interior posts and also without external guying. Generally, these structures are built for higher loading applications and larger span sizes.
