Our Team

MDM Shelters is a family run business, started in 2001, conveniently located in the heart of the Milford, CT business district. With the knowledgeable guidance and direction of our founding members-one being the 1st employee in the industry’s former largest manufacturer-we’ve all worked our way up the ladder. Working from dealer up is part of our commitment to customer satisfaction that gives us the understanding and focus to continually meet the needs and requirements of our respected clients.

As we continue to grow domestically and intentionally, we stay grounded in our commitment to quality service and dependable products. Continued research and education in both industry and professional personal growth are the cornerstones of our company. We deliver value not just products.

Happy Customers

  • “My customers get great service not only from me, but also from everyone at MDM – from the ownerto his mom (it IS a family business!),to all the account managers, to all the guys loading the trucks day after day in the warehouse – everyone at the facility (and especially my own account manager and true right-hand man, Dave Clayton). Everyone there treats my customers with the same care and respect that I do. They are a family business, and they treat me like family as well.”

    ~ Kathy Tremblay (Rhino Shelter Dealer)
  • “Our first use of the shelter was for our daughter’s 4th birthday party with her friends. Our backyard has no shade, so we needed to provide some. We found your product to be very sturdy and substantial, yet easy to assemble. We intend to use it for these types of events right through her college graduation!”

    ~ Pam Carlson
  • “Shelter has now withstood several 50 MPH plus wind storms and sub freezing temps. Looks as good as the day it went up.”

    ~ Jim Lightfoot
  • “Finally got to shoot a photo or two of the shelter in the full winter storm mode. It held up very well and continues to be a ‘life saver’ for that generator. I’m happy that I bought it. Thanks again.”

    ~ Ralph Porter
  • “The fact that I’m dealing with a company of great integrity has resulted in a growing business for me. I’m proud of my website and my affiliation with everyone at MDM Rhino Shelters.”

    ~ Kathy Tremblay (Rhino Shelter Dealer)
  • “We set up our 14 X 14 party tent each year for our New Year’s Eve party, and we love it. This year, 2010, we decided to leave it up. One night, it rained all night and then at around 5 a.m. it became very windy, 20 to 30 mile an hour gusts. The stakes had come loose, due to the satuated soil from it raining all night long. At 5:15, as I was making my morning pot of coffee, the wind caught under the tent and lifted it over our 7 foot privacy fence half on, half off of our back deck. My son and I went out and quickly took the tent apart in the wind and rain. I was amazed at how well it survived the beating. Nothing ripped, nothing broke, the only items damaged were one corner leg pole and one rafter pole. I highly recommend any Rhino Shelter tent and will only buy another tent made by Rhino Shelter.”
