Peters Tours TentCraft in Traverse City
U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today visited TentCraft, a custom pop-up tent, frame tent and tent accessory manufacturer, in Traverse City. While on a tour of their facility, Peters also highlighted his recent efforts to support small businesses across Michigan that are working to adapt to unprecedented challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. TentCraft applied for and received a loan from the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which Peters helped pass as part of the CARES Act in March. These loans provided TentCraft the resources needed to retain staff and overhaul their operations in order to produce tents for Coronavirus testing sites and other medical facilities.
