Driven to Succeed

1977

 

1977

The Cap-it story began in 1977 with the opening of the first store located in Abbotsford BC, manufacturing Truck Caps and selling RV supplies. Retailing has always been a joy for founder Hank Funk and in 1980 the company brought in additional products for their customers such as Truck Accessories and Camping Equipment. By 1987 Funk had opened four stores and added many more products such as billiard tables, trampolines, Spas and even Ultralight Aircraft. Funk says those were wonderful and exciting years.

The dream of opening more stores was always in Funk’s mind and in 1990 the dream became a reality. In an effort to streamline the business and keep efficiencies and profits a priority, Funk sold the two recreation stores and kept the remaining two truck accessory stores. Always striving to be the best, he wanted to take the truck accessory business more seriously than anyone else. Building upscale accessory stores and offering great service was the priority. Evolving the brand and adapting to the demands of the customer and the changing times, helped make Cap-it the first and largest truck accessory franchise in Canada.

Along with a new updated Logo, new colors and images were chosen to represent the Cap-it culture. The words “Because Life’s an Adventure™” were carefully chosen to represent Cap-it’s new direction. They wanted the customer to experience the adventure that a truck can bring. As a well-known Canadian artist, Funk was able to bring his artistic skills into store design and layout.

 

 

 

 


 

2016

Making history and truly becoming an international company with 28 stores and growing.
2010

Sons, Mason and Andrew, President and Director, now run the day to day operations while Hank remains Chairman of the Board. Cap-it has always survived by its creativity and now for 2016, Cap-it is taking its new proven concept to Dallas Texas. Many changes can be seen in the new store design. With the introduction of a new category, adventure/ camping plus the new interior and exterior design, Cap-it has once again taken it to another level.  Attention to detail, design and operations has given the company the upscale appeal customers are looking for in today’s marketplace.  From the early days of manufacturing the goal remains the same, give the customer a great experience when shopping. “We want to keep a customer for life” says Hank Funk.
