John Cavender
Master Instructor

In 1990, after four years of military service, John began building mobile workshops using large panel vans with built-in tools and sewing tables. This enabled him to meet the high demand for custom canvas in a wide variety of applications and locations. These mobile workshops grossed millions of dollars annually
In 1998, John was contracted to manufacture eradicable awnings. This led him to focus in metal fabrication for Marriott, making awnings for public schools in Florida as well as major grocery chains. He quickly earned a reputation for his metal fabrication work.
This led to manufacturing custom wake board towers for Moomba Ski Boats. It was during this period that he began working with semi-hard enclosures and was ultimately contracted by Peter Pan Industries to build complete enclosures for amphibious attraction vehicles
In 2003, John’s “OEM” (original equipment manufacturing) branch of the business took off. He was responsible for the patterning and duplication of patterns to meet the high demand of his clientele, which included Angler Bass Boats, Blazer Bass and Bay Boats,
