Alpinter has been active for over 30 years as a leading manufacturer and supplier of shelters and other non-food core relief items for humanitarian and institutional organisations. Headquartered in Belgium, Alpinter manages a network of local offices and warehouses around the world (Bulgaria, China, Pakistan, UAE, Uganda).
The increased trend towards camping & glamping, combined with growing interest in shelter structures from outside the humanitarian sector, inspired Alpinter to think beyond its existing activities and target markets. In 2020, the World of Tents group was created as a mother brand for 6 existing, newly created and acquired tent brands.
With the various tent labels, World Of Tents combines over a century of collective experience in the design and manufacture of scouting and disaster relief tents with some of the most exciting new brands in glamping, camping, and temporary shelters for events. While the six brands cover diverse markets and user groups, they all share the common values of craftsmanship, design and performance.
World of Tents, just like Alpinter, continues to operate from Belgium. The Alpinter team remains on board and has been reinforced at group level to respond to an ever growing number of projects in tent design, production and development.
