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.
At Specialised Covers we are striving to implement Industry 4.0 principles within the context of our customer’s growth strategy, Lectra provided us with a tailored software and equipment to support this objective.

World Mental Health Day 2019: Can caravanning help with mental health?
If you keep your car outdoors, the warmer, more sunny months can result in paint and even bodywork damage. Make sure to protect your vehicle from UV fade, tree sap, leaves and mess from birds this summer with our tailored, Stormshield + outdoor car covers.
And, until 31st July, you can enjoy £50 off our Stormshield +, tailored covers by simply using code STORMSHIELD50 when you check out.

After we spotted a photo on twitter, with grisgruntled Peugeot RCZ owner Adam Tudor-Lane, complaining about how birds had spoiled his beautifully clean car, we immediately jumped to attention. After contacting Adam and suggesting an outdoor car cover may solve his problems, he explained that he had tried covers in the past but they simply were not up to the job.
Clearly, he had never tried a Specialised Covers outdoor cover. We're extremely proud and confident of our products, so we knew if Adam tried our Stormshield +, designed for long-term outdoor storage, he wouldn't look back...
If you've seen other Specialised Covers towing protectors on the road or at campsites, and wondered why your Tow Pro looks slightly different; firstly, well spotted! Second of all. Don't panic. They're meant to be that way... and for very good reason.
As all of our tailored towing protectors are made to measure, the access points on the Tow Pro + and Tow Pro Elite are completely dependent on the make and model of caravan. For example, some locker boxes are the full width of the caravan - whereas other vans, don't have a locker box on the front at all!
