Spring Newsletter 2017


We've pushed the clocks forward to bring out the sunshine, which means that the outdoor event season is just round the corner. So we thought now would be a great time to give you a round up of some of our highlights of 2017 so far.


Custom Covers Animation

For those of you who missed it, we released a new animation showing how simple Custom Covers marquees are to install. We think this is a great tool for our customers to use when training up new recruits to put up our kit. Click the image below to watch it.

The Steelyard

Last year we were asked to manufacture bespoke PVC covers by Acorn Event Structures to cover the colossal 50m x 85m Steelyard structure, which made it’s debut at Creamfields festival.

Fast forward to now, where Acorn are celebrating a triple award win for the structure. The first win was the ‘Product Innovation Award’ from NASC (National access and Scaffolding Confederation), then at the Festival Supplier Awards they took home the award for ‘Best Stage’. And finally for the triple they won ‘Best Staging Supplier’ at the Event Production Awards.

We are extremely proud to have been part of this project with Acorn.

Bank of England Visit

We welcomed Andrew Holder, an Agent of the Bank of England, into Custom Covers HQ this month. As part of the Bank of England’s agency team, Andrew was tasked with checking the pulse of local industry to then report back to the bank of England to help assess the economic state of the country. Custom Covers are proud to be one of the companies that helps set the country's benchmark.
