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.
It's great to receive such lovely feedback from our customers; and it's especially nice when they share that feedback with others!
Caravan and Motorhome Club member, Mr Johnson, recently got in touch with the Club after seeing our advert in the magazine and purchasing a full caravan cover for a new Elddis caravan.
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.
It was another fantastic 6 days at Birmingham's NEC last week, for The Caravan and Motorhome Show 2018. We were back on stand 18.11 to meet and greet our fabulous customers and demonstrate our covers.
The team were on hand to offer expert advice on our tailored covers and towing protectors and talk customers through the features and benefits of our protective covers. Customers were also able to take advantage of our exclusive show offers and discounts.
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.

It is still undoubtedly summer here in the UK (and what a scorcher!), but here at Specialised Covers, we have started planning for the autumn and the orders it will bring.
And, to stay ahead of the rush, until August 31st, we'd like to offer our customers £50 off all our full caravan and motorhome storage covers.
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.
With the UK continuing to bask in this glorious weather, don't forget your SPF - Specialised Protection Factor - during the summer months.
From faded paintwork and scrapes on cars and motorbikes, to chips on caravans caused by loose stones on the roads, our indoor and outdoor tailored covers offer protection from a host of outdoor elements including UV fade, tree sap, mess from birds and damage during travelling.
