About Chesterfield Awning
Chesterfield Awning, with their main location in South Holland, Illinois, has been crafting custom awning solutions for businesses throughout the state of Illinois and beyond for the last 59 years. Owned and operated by Dave Ausema, he and his team can measure, quote, cut, and fabricate even faster with a Carlson Design Plotter/Cutter installed in-house and operated by their lead graphics and digital pattern designer, Matt Coglianese. Chesterfield mostly fabricates traditional-style awnings, utilizing Sunbrella and vinyl material with and without striped patterns while also providing storage solutions for seasonally hung awnings.
With a small team of sewers lead by the operations manager, Steve, most of their time is spent taking in measurements and converting those to templates, then cutting the templates out of paper, then tracing the pattern onto the desired material and finally cutting the material by hand. As you can see, there is room for improvement in efficiently preparing material for the awning frame, and that’s exactly what the Carlson Design PT-72″ offers.
