It's fantastic to hear that we have been shortlisted for the Small Manufacturer Award at the prestigious Insider Made in Yorkshire Awards 2019.
The winners will be announced at the ceremony on 7th March, at Leeds’ Hilton Hotel, and we're looking forward to the evening meeting like minded, Yorkshire companies.
Have you got a Specialised Cover you just can't be without? Do your friends and family comment on the quality, or its kerb (pardon the pun) appeal?
If so, we'd like to hear from you. We love sharing customer stories and really finding out what it is about our covers that you really value. Ultimately, our covers offer protection. That's what they are designed and manufactured for - and have been since 1981. But sometimes it's the little finishes touches that really makes something stand out.
2018 has been a very busy and exciting year at Specialised Covers and we couldn't do it without your support and valued custom.
As we put down our tailors chalk, wrap up our tape measures and switch the sewing machines off for the year, we'd like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
Our new Tow Pro+ was launched at the October Motorhome & Caravan Show 2018 and has continued to prove a hit with our customers, even in chilly December!
With three access points; including a new window drop down, the tailored towing protector allows you to get to the grab handles, locker box and window without removing the cover.
We love what we do, especially when we get asked to cover something a little out of the ordinary.
Now a chair isn't really our of the ordinary, per se, but the chairs in question are rather iconic, so we were pretty excited when we were asked to produce 4 special covers for them.
After a very busy and exciting year of growth, we're pleased to announce the appointments of Katie Fishwick as our new Managing Director, and Veronica Jeffries who joins Specialised Covers as Commercial Manager.
Katie, the daughter of Douglas and Carole Long who founded Specialised Covers back in 1981, will maintain the family heritage of the company and continue to build on the success achieved over the past 37 years. Many of our customers will already know Katie from previous shows and events!
It's amazing what you can achieve in a year, when you put your mind to it.
And, in just 365 days we built a brand new, purpose built factory, allowing us to double our production capacity and create more jobs here in Yorkshire, than ever before.
If you're visiting us for patterning & would like to park up over night in your van or motorhome, you're more than welcome to stay with us!
If we're producing a cover for your caravan or motorhome and we need to take a new pattern, it's more than likely you'll be visiting and staying for an hour or so whilst our Design Team take the measurements and create a tailored pattern for your vehicle.
On Sunday 10 June, we'll be supporting our own triathlete in training, Louise, who is taking part in the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds with the amazing Stephan & his daughter Chloe Couture, who has cerebral palsy.
The team of 3 will be raising money for Stephan's and his wife Jo's charity, Lady Bugs Trust, which helps improve the lives of disabled children & young adolescents.
CarSafe is based in an unbranded, rural, state of the art storage for classic and performance vehicles. The facility has often been described as more of a car showroom than a storage facility, but the service and environment reflect the very high standards expected by their clients.
CarSafe offers professional and secure vehicle storage solutions, operated by a passionate and experienced team of professionals.
We're excited to be nearing the end of the construction of our brand new factory.
With the launch planned for April, we'll be doubling our production capacity; which means we'll be able to protect more cars, caravans and motorbikes than ever before!
In August, Steve Jackson, editor of Nacelle, The Triumph Owners Club MCC came to visit us with his fabulous 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R.
Steve came all the way from Cheshire so we could take a pattern of his bike for both Prestige indoor and Stormshield outdoor covers (and also so we could have a natter, a few cups of tea and talk about a hat...).
