About us

Bushtec Namibia was established in 2023. Being part of Canvas and Tent Manufacturing (Pty) Ltd, a global leader in the manufacturing of canvas and PVC products. Founded five decades ago, Canvas and Tent began as a local brand, manufacturing tarpaulins for the South African Railways. Over the decades, the company expanded its design and manufacturingcapacities and service capabilities, through an integrated range of companies and brands that work together efficiently.

We specialize in various industries ranging from luxury tents and turnkey tented resort developments for the tourism market, adventure products for the outdoor enthusiasts and turnkey re-deployable camp solutions ideally suited for the military, humanitarian, medical, mining and construction organizations.

We are proud to be the first company in Africa to implement the Eton system in its factory. By implementing the Eton system, we revolutionized the manufacturing process of our canvas products. Allowing us to set new standards in the manufacturing of robust, fit-for-purpose, world-class canvas tents. The Eton System provides real time data collection and information with many process and organizational benefits including:

» Improved production quality
» Reduced through-put times
