Cover-All of Wisconsin Becomes 'Structures Unlimited'
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/18/2010
Wisconsin's premier dealer for Cover-All building products is going through some major changes now that the corporate Cover-All business has filed for bankruptcy. The Stratford-based Cover-All of
Wisconsin, which first opened for business in 1997, is changing its name to Structures Unlimited.
General Manager Mike Wimmer told Wisconsin Ag Connection that his firm will continue to serve all of their former customers who had purchased Cover-All buildings in the past. And they are also
talking with other manufacturers of steel-framed fabric-covered buildings in order to continue selling those types of structures.
"These changes will ultimately present new opportunities for our company," Wimmer said. "We hope to be representing several different fabric-type building brands in the near future, and we are also going to
be offering our maintenance services nationwide, instead of just Wisconsin."
The Saskatoon-based Cover-All Building Systems Inc. announced in April they they were closing its doors and laying off hundreds of workers after being granted protection from its creditors by the Court of
Queen's Bench in Alberta. More than 35,000 Cover-All buildings have been shipped worldwide during the past 17 years.
Meanwhile, Cover-All of Wisconsin had previously offered private contracting services throughout the United States for the corporate owners; but were restricted to sell the buildings only in Wisconsin.
Wimmer said the newly restructured business will allow them to offer construction and upkeep service crews all over the country.
Fabric-type buildings have gained in popularity in recent years because they are less expensive to build and easy to maintain. The buildings are commonly used for livestock housing, riding arenas and storage
