In 1953, a true family business with 1,800 square feet, one employee, Mom Powell did the books, Dad Powell did the selling, son, Jimmie Powell ran the shop and son, Don Powell installed the awnings.

In the early 60's, Van Nuys Awning moved to a larger facility in downtown Van Nuys, with 11,000 square feet, eight employees and the Powell family. Our reputation for quality and service grew and so did we as our customers recommended us to friends and associates.

In the mid-70's, we built and moved into our present facility a 20,000 square foot factory showroom located at 5661 Sepulveda Blvd., Van Nuys, CA. Today, the Powell family and it's 45 employees still stress the high quality and customer service that has made Van Nuys Awning one of the nations most highly respected awning companies.
