Due to the cancellation of the 2021 Feb NCC Caravan, Camping and Motorhome show we would like to offer our customers access to the show discounts online and with our team.
A caravan is an expensive investment, so it's important you protect it from damage that can happen when you're towing.
Our range of patented Towing Protectors protect the front of your caravan from chips and stones that can fly up from the road when you're towing, as well as keeping dirt at bay, meaning less cleaning and more relaxation time when you arrive at your destination!
At Specialised Covers we also offer a cutting service utilises our two CNC cutting machines to help businesses of all different shapes and sizes meet their cutting needs, providing them with a fast, convenient and reliable cutting service. Most recently supporting the cutting of NHS gowns for a local manufacturer.
Our 2020 Lectra multiple layer cutting machine can cut up to 90 layers of material on a 7m length bed, with an automated spreader, increasing cutting time exponentially. The Vector vacuum cutting bed allows multiple layers to be held in place and cut with great accuracy ensuring pieces go together easily and speeding up production.
Due to the cancellation of the Oct Caravan show we would like to offer our customers our show offer online. This will allow us to offer the same great discounts over a longer period and support faster production times.
The days may still be warm and sunny, but make sure you're ready to protect your caravan, motorhome and horse box when the weather turns cooler. Don't wait for autumn when our lead time can increase to 6-8 weeks.
As of the 26th May 2020 we will be returning a proportion of our production staff to start works on our own orders. We have been producing PPE for the last few weeks, however this has now been completed and we can start to phase in staff to support a return to normal production.
We accessed and continue to use the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme for workers we have had to furlough which is currently around 55% of our team. Bringing back employees that can work, and doing so in the safest way possible is our focus for June
At Specialised Covers we are proud of our quality and high standards that we have in both the production of our products, the factory we operate from and the development of our staff. We are therefore thrilled to again have achieved our ISO 9001 accreditation in Dec 2019. We have been accredited since 1998 but this year was the first year we passed with not one non-conformance, not even a minor.
As a family business we are every evolving and growing, making mistakes and learning from them with many of the management team growing with us. This learning creates non-conformance and therefore helps us strengthen our processes and establish, better, more accountable and efficient practices. All of which leads to more efficient, accurate and sustainable production supply for our customers with the best service and product we can. This was due to many elements including a supportive and focused management team, hard work and the dedication to offer the service we would want to receive.
In line with the Prime Minister’s announcement, we will temporarily close our office and production facility with immediate effect until further notice.
Winter can create many problems for drivers, from those who have just passed their test to seasoned motorists. When you combine darkness, sub-zero temperatures, and heavy rain or snow, drivers are faced with conditions that are less than optimal. In fact, drivers are 20% more likely to be in a car accident during the winter months*.
However, the risk of having these accidents can be drastically reduced by watching out for specific hazards and taking some simple precautions.
