A.R.E. Awarded GSA Contract for Truck Caps, Tonneau Covers

June 17, 2010 - Press Release

MASSILLON, OHIO - A.R.E. is proud to announce the company has been awarded a Government Service Administration (GSA) contract to sell its line of high-quality truck caps and tonneau covers to government agencies throughout the United States.

The GSA contract allows government purchasers to efficiently order an A.R.E. topper by visiting  

As a leading manufacturer of truck caps and tonneau covers for more than 40 years, A.R.E. custom builds their products at its ISO-9001:2000-certified manufacturing facilities.  A.R.E. products currently available through the GSA website are the Deluxe Commercial Unit (DCU) Truck Cap made of fully welded aluminum frame construction for durability; the CX Series Truck Cap featuring a full walk-in rear door and screens for extra ventilation; the V Series Truck Cap that combines strength, style and function; and the LSII Series - the ultimate in custom-fitted hard tonneau covers with an exclusive Lift Assist gas strut system.

"We have a unique product that fills a niche for government purchasing managers at a reasonable cost," said Jim Blayne, commercial/fleet division sales manager for A.R.E.  "Our goal is to better serve our customers, which is why we independently underwent the review process to receive a GSA contract that saves government purchasers time and money with pre-approved pricing for A.R.E. truck caps and tonneau covers.  It also allows smaller municipalities to have the same efficiency advantages as a larger company." 

From order placement to delivery, A.R.E. can custom build their caps within three weeks thanks to its 500 dedicated employees, a network of 500 independent authorized dealers and a company delivery fleet.  For more information, contact A.R.E. at 400 Nave Rd. S.E., P.O. Box 1100, Massillon, OH 44648; call 800.649.4ARE, or visit

    Just purchased a used 2 piece topper for my 2000 Chevy tracker, that was on a 1999 Chevy tracker. As far as I got today, the sunroof isn't lining up right. There is a sticker on topper that reads, fleet this company been bought out by you, & if so could you give me any pointers of what to do. A million. Thanks, jim
