New Addition to the Protec Family

  

Not a day goes by here at Protec Covers when we aren't looking for new ways to improve our products and services. We've always been passionate about making sure our covers are the best they possibly can be because we truly believe that your caravan, motorhome, car or motorbike deserve the highest quality protection available. With this in mind, today we welcome Mandy Chattaway to our Product Development Team.

Mandy brings (say it quickly) 40 years experience in the sewing and tailoring industry to our production facility in Bradford, West Yorkshire, where she will be working closely with our two other recent additions, Matt and Beki. Although today is Mandy's first day, she has settled in really quickly and has already painstakingly produced an outdoor car cover for an upcoming project.

We asked Mandy for a few words for this article: "I've had a great first day. Everyone has been so welcoming and there's a real family spirit, it's one of the nicest places I've worked. I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into some exciting new projects". Obviously, we put her on the spot but still, it's a lovely thing to hear. 

As Mandy has said, there are a few exciting projects on the horizon for us so be sure to keep checking back here on the news section of our website for updates. You'll be the first to know.

Welcome to new staff

We’ve been around for a long time here at Protec. We’re in our third decade as a leading manufacturer of bespoke protective covers for caravans and motorhomes, slowly growing year on year and bringing our covers to an increasing customer base.

Right now is a very exciting time in our story. Last year at Christmas, we welcomed a new M.D. and there have been some great changes in the way we do business since then. We’re tightening up our procedures, honing our products and looking for ways to improve the services we offer to you, our customers.

Today, as part of our continued development, we are proud and excited to announce the appointment of two new members to the Protec team; Beki Chang and Matt Fazackerley.

Beki has been appointed as CAD Manager and joins our digital development team. All new patterns we take from caravans, cars and motorhomes are created using age-old tailoring techniques. If your vehicle isn’t already on our extensive database then our designers will come to you. They’ll take measurements, pin fabric over the surface of the vehicle, nip a bit here, tuck a bit there, add any darts etc. Once the tailoring is complete, the fabric pattern needs to be translated to a digital pattern so that our state of the art CNC machines can accurately cut the pieces of your new cover. Beki has over 6 years’ experience in tailoring and has a degree in Fashion Design with Marketing & Production and we’re delighted to have her join the Protec family.

Matt joins us as Cutting Manager. Each cover we produce is made to order, unique to the make and model of vehicle you have asked us to protect. As you can imagine, we can have hundreds of orders going through our production floor at any one time. Towing covers, full caravan or motorhome covers, car covers, each one bespoke and made to order. Some of the covers need to be cut by hand, others on the CNC machine and it’s Matt’s job to make sure everything is made correctly and on time. Matt brings his 11 years’ industry experience to our cutting floor and we are very much looking forward to streamlining our production and getting expertly crafted covers to customers quicker than ever before.

We’ve got a few projects ticking away behind the scenes and lots of improvements in the pipeline. We’ll be sharing developments here with you first so keep your eyes peeled for the next news article if you’re keen to know what we’ll be up to next. 

Order now and avoid the queues

It’s that time of the year again for Pro-tec where our order books for Covers start to fill up, and the production lead times begin to stretch.

To avoid the queues – and we all hate queuing – we try to remind customers to not to leave their orders too late.

So call us now on +44 (0)1274 780088 and we’ll do our best to ensure your Cover arrives in good time.

Waiting Times after the NEC

Queues for Caravan Covers

Sorry we haven't updated the blog in some time but we just haven't had a minute to think about the website.  At the moment the whole team is working full belt to get your caravan covers and motorhome covers to you as fast as possible.  Everybody is working overtime and we have taken on extra full time staff to deal with the uptake of orders.

For the last 4 years we have consecutively broken our sales records at the October NEC show.  After last year's hugely successful show we really believed that it would be impossible to physically take more orders but we were wrong.  We had 5 members of staff working flat out on the stand and it still wasn't enough to keep up with the overwheming popularity of our covers. 

Whilst we are thrilled to have taken so many orders at, during and after the show we also understand that it can be quite frustrating if you are in the queue waiting for your Caravan Cover, Motorhome Cover or Towing Cover.  We have invested a lot in new technology to try to ease this bottle necking in the future and we ask that you be patient.  Thankfully we've got some fanastic customers who have been very understanding and we assure you that we are doing our upmost to get your cover to you.  The good news is that it's worth the wait.

Thanks from everyone at the Protec Team for allowing us to provide you with the best caravan cover money can buy.
