– Ora X. McClellan, Founder of Jersey Shore Awning.

Jersey Shore Awning:
A Legacy of Growth and Innovation

After serving as an Army mechanic in the European Theater, Ora X. McClellan opens Shore Awning at 309 Main St in Avon, NJ in 1947. Originally a small storefront shop focused on window awnings and upholstery, Shore Awning employed Ora and his wife Elysabethe. As the company grew in the early years, Ora began to look for a larger space. He was able to secure a loan for $6000 in 1952 to purchase the empty lot at 40 Main St. in Avon. With four friends Ora built, from the ground up, the new home of Shore Awning. Featuring an exciting storefront with plenty of production space, along with an apartment upstairs, Shore Awning’s new home became a fixture for locals coming over the Main St bridge from Belmar. As Ora’s three children, Ruth Ann, Nancy, and Mike came of age, they helped out after school and on weekends with any extra work. Mike took an immediate interest and began to work in and learn the business with any free time he had. During this time, Shore Awning was able to expand into larger projects, including Patio Canopies and commercial awnings. Mike excelled in sports and planned to go to Delaware to play college football, but fate intervened. On Palm Sunday, 1973, Ora suffered a heart attack at home and became unable to continue to manage the company. Foregoing plans to play college football, Mike stayed at home and takes over operations.

Mike begins to embrace technological advancements and intentionally grows the business into a reputable and quality oriented company. Shore Awning expands into commercial work, including steel and aluminum structures, and party rentals. Becoming a “Master Fabricator” and joining the board of IFAI opens up new and exciting opportunities for business growth and advancement. In the year 2000, Shore Awning moves to a larger facility in Eatontown with upgraded equipment and expanded capabilities. As the industry grew to include motorized options and more industrial work, Shore Awning adapted. It was around this time that Mike’s three sons, Jesse, Drew, and Wade, began to work in and learn the business from the ground up. Starting with sweeping floors and cleaning trucks to installations, production, and design, all three learned as much as was possible. In 2014, when Mike suffered a heart attack  in the office, Wade began to manage the business, addressing turnover and industry challenges. Mike officially retired in 2015, and due to his health challenges, Shore Awning was reorganized as Jersey Shore Awning with Wade as the new president.

After the reorganization, “Jersey Shore Awning” moves to a new facility at 607 Memorial Drive in Neptune. The prime location and size of property is ideal for residential, commercial, and industrial work. Jersey Shore Awning operated much in the same way Shore Awning did, but the Covid pandemic exposes challenges and shortcomings in the industry. In 2021, Wade initiated a comprehensive overhaul of business operations, from operational processes and culture building to finances and strategy. Enlisting numerous experts in all business practices, Jersey Shore Awning began to take a new shape, one of superior quality and customer service. Focused on working smarter, serving customer’s needs, and a winning company culture, a leadership team is created and new CRM software is deployed. We aim to break new ground in the marketplace with innovative ideas and strategies, surpass all competitors in the fields of quality and customer service, and commit to building a legacy not only for our family, but our team members families as well.
