Our business, WeatherSafe WA has been solving West Australian outdoor weather problems for more than 40 years.

Formally Del-Ray Canvas Australia, a family business founded in 1975 and operated by my parents, I bought the business from them in 2010.

I have a good friend in the same industry located in South Australia. His name is Tim and his business name was called WA Young and Co.

After attending a marketing seminar together we decided to change the name of our respective companies to WeatherSafe to give the organisations broader appeal in the outdoor weather protection industry.

So I changed my business name to WeatherSafe WA and Tim renamed his business WeatherSafe Shades.

We are two completely separate entities but we share a common name, common ideas and common goals so if you are searching on the internet you may see WeatherSafe Shades as well as WeatherSafe WA stuff.
