Addison Awning and Holiday Dock

A History of Quality

Addison Awning was established in 1895 by the Addison Brothers as a saddle and leather goods shop. The company quickly made the transition into awnings and covers, and by 1930 was a Jackson-leading awning manufacturer servicing hundreds of home and business customers each year.

In 1972, Holiday Dock was established as a manufacturer of quality, lakefront docks and dock accessories.

Under the same ownership since 1982, Addison Awning and Holiday Dock have long-standing business traditions and dedicated staff. Our senior sewing technicians have been with Addison Awning since the mid-80’s, creating over 40 years of combined experience.

These talented people bring with them a commitment to excellence and a higher standard of knowledge that is reflected in our continuing education and is in keeping with industry standards. Addison Awning has been a member of the Industrial Fabric Association International since 1933. We are also members of the Michigan Home Builders Association, Home Builders Association of Jackson and of Lansing, and a member of the Canvas Products Association Zone 7.

Where Quality Begins

Quality awnings begin in the large, well-lit shops of Addison Awning. We have nearly 7,000 square feet of professional working space for our sewing shop that is exceptionally clean and well-organized, and contains no less than eight sewing stations. Our 5,000 square foot welding and fabricating shop has the equipment, machinery, complete tubing and parts inventory in stock to meet all of your fabricating needs.
