Guillermo Lizalde

Tent Master

Coming a long way from his hometown in Zacatecas Mexico, Guillermo Lizalde has built up quite a name for himself in the tent industry. As our resident Tent Master, Guillermo takes tremendous pride in the work that he and his team of skilled craftsmen are able to create each and every day. Working along side his brother Jose, nephew Rudy, and son Elvis, he helps make even the wildest tent dreams come to reality.

Lizalde started his career in the tent industry in 1983, where he began his love of tents working for the now defunct Academy Tent and Canvas. Though he started out as a floor worker, his passion and hard work soon led him into the ranks of floor supervisor. With experience, patience and extreme attention to the details, he has become one of the foremost leaders in tent design and production in the entire world.

When recently asked about his favorite recent projects and which he was most proud of he indicated, “Every one which can be considered difficult.” Guillermo thrives on the challenge of being able to create something that others have never seen before and loves the feeling of accomplishment when a new design or custom project is completed.

One of his most recent projects has been the creation, design, and patterning of our new 59’ wide Tidewater Twin Pole Sailcloth Tent. It is a wonderful addition to our growing product line, and with his guidance and the support of our production and Computer Aided Design teams, it has been a sensational hit.

Though he has definitely built his name in the tent industry, that isn’t the only thing he’s passionate about. In his free time he enjoys working his garden and working on remodeling projects around his home

Guillermo’s decades of proud experience, passion for his work, and his undying need to never stop learning can best be summarized by his often said words “No problem, we can do it!”

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.
