Teeco Solutions is focused
on making party rental firms
more efficient and profitable.

After running a successful tent rental business, we discovered a problem: Tents needed to be washed, but there wasn’t an easy way to do it. So, we developed a solution—the first tent washing machine on the market. We sold our tent rental company, and launched Teeco, forever changing the industry options for washing tents.

For over 20 years, our mission has been simple: We want to make life easier for people who own and assemble tents.

I’m the glue, the cheerleader, behind-the-scenes-digital dynamo, and HR extraordinaire at Teeco. I’m always working to support the team and ensure all projects are on track. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, dancing, traveling, keeping Steve in line and spending time with our three 20-something sons, and newest golden doodle named Gus. I’m also recovering half-marathoner who has recently turned to pilates and yoga as a replacement.

Chandra Tripp

Sales Director

If I’m putting on “The Truth Hat”, I hate Mondays.  But the rest of the week isn’t so bad!  I get to talk to lots of nice folks—all over the country and world–in the party rental industry about helping them reduce stress, increase profits, and improve their business. When I’m not here, I can be found in my one husband, no pets, two kids gone empty nest.  I’m really just a farm girl and recovering triathlete who loves reading “foodie” publications, being outdoors, and watching college basketball & football with my family (Go Illini! Roll Tide!).

Office Manager

Desiree is my name and organization is my game.  Yep, I’m the Teeco Office Manager.  My aim is to be helpful to the customer and to my mates here in the office.  Check this out—I’ve been a librarian most of my life so it’s just in my nature to keep things in order.  I also have a background in customer service and know and understand how businesses work.  Outside of Teeco, I have a great guy who keeps me motivated, an energetic Yorkie with an attitude and I’m have my Black Belt in Karate—this comes in handy both in and out of the office

Shawn is the director of maintenance, which means he’s in charge of quality control for every machine that leaves the factory. He works closely with customers to ensure their delivery is seamless and the follow-up training is thorough. If you ever have a chance to visit us in St. Louis, make sure it’s when Shawn’s not traveling. Outside of work, he enjoys practicing his culinary skills as an extraordinary cook and BBQ master.

Rich’s photo will be coming soon, so for now, we have this cool bitmoji to represent our newest team member.  Rich is the Maintenance Specialist, which means he takes care of all of customers that are in our preventive maintenance program. He works closely with customers to train new crew members on operations and ensure their machines are working efficiently. Rich and his wife, Tracy have 3 amazing kids and a dog named Beau.  Outside of work, he enjoys watching Cardinals Baseball, fish and deer hunt.






Our Headquarters

Teeco is based in St. Louis, Missouri. We enjoy working in the heart of the Midwest – the people are friendly, the gooey butter cake is plentiful, and the baseball is (for the most part) never disappointing.

Every machine we sell is built at our headquarters. From the humble beginnings in a 1,500 square foot center to a facility that now exceeds 45,000, Teeco has the in-house expertise to service any size customer throughout the world. What makes Teeco manufacturing special is that everything from building UL approved electrical panels, fabricating the steel to maintaining an online library for future service is done in one place. The Teeco team is always ready to serve in any capacity a client may need.
