President / CEO Manfred W. Loechner

Everyone calls me Manny!

As owner of Awning Solutions, Inc, I am committed to excellence. It’s has been a dream and goal to own and operate an awning company where I can apply what I’ve learned over last 24 years in the trade with our clients and employees.


1982 to 1986: (family farm)
Ran the family produce farm in Hebron Indiana, a small town south of Chicago Illinois. Before and after school, I worked the fields alongside my parents and siblings. My parents taught us from an early age the importance of hard work, commitment, and perseverance.

1986 to present: (military career active and reservist)
Currently a Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9) with the United States Navy Reserves. I’ve spent the last 24 years mastering the skills of the “parachute loft” where I learned to sew and fabricate parachutes and life saving equipment. I learned early on how important it is to pay attention to detail and that every detail is important.

1990 to 2007: (awning career)
After leaving Active Duty I went to work for a local awning company where I sewed and fabricated custom awnings and canvas products. Since then I’ve been actively engaged in the manufacturing and production of various awning and canvas structures from small to large scale projects. I’ve trained and instructed employees on the techniques used and improved the processes in development of the latest shade systems on the market.
