Founded in 1988, the Vermont Tent Company has grown into the largest tent rental company in the state. Not only do they set up tents for weddings, graduation ceremonies and other large-scale events, the company provides everything its customers might need - from tables and chairs to dishware, catering supplies and linens.

VEDA provided partial financing to help Vermont Tent Company relocate to a new 59,000 square foot warehouse in Essex Junction in order to consolidate its many facilities under one roof and offer new services that had been previously outsourced. The loan will also help the company purchase new vehicles and hire up to 15 additional employees in the next three years. TD Bank, NA also provided financing for the expansion project.
