About Us

TM Covers (Transport & Marine Covers Ltd) is the leading company in the Top of the South in specialist fabric solutions. Generally referred to as canvas by our customers, it can be high temperature, acoustic,  potable, anti-bacterial or one of hundreds of options in the PVC or Canvas range.

 

Since 1988 our team has created solutions for clients in the marine, transport, agriculture, horticulture, aquaculture, residential, industrial, educational, mining, aviation, in fact pretty much any industry you can think of!

 

We play an active part in our community & sponsor children to the Special Needs Children Parties & Shows each year.  We also donated new shade sails to the Nelson Cycle Ways Trust, Nelson Mountain Bike Park, Nelson Women's Centre & Nelson College for Girls.  We regularly donate offcuts to schools, kindergartens & preschools for craft projects & shows such as the annual Nelson Mask Parade.  We have school groups from some of the colleges visiting to look at the range of products we make & the processes we use.  Other support includes sponsoring prizes & tables at a variety of fundraising initiatives for schools, Rescue Helicopter, Fifeshire Foundation & sports clubs.

 

We made a giant water slide for schools to use at their fairs which has been a hit with the crowds (adults & kids).  This has been a great success at Dovedale School.

Christine Clark - Managing Director

Andrew & I bought the company in 2012. You’ll find me either tucked away in my little cubicle working on new, crazy-sounding ideas or out visiting clients. I’m frequently banned from the workshop for trying to tidy things away so they can’t be found again or suggesting alternative methods for doing things from a non-fabricators’ way of thinking - sometimes they work out well...

Debbie - Cleaner

Debbie has been with us for more years than we can remember & keeps us in line.  She spoils us rotten every day.

Emma - Administration Manager & Calm Central

Emma has returned to Nelson after years away as First Mate on superyachts in all the glamorous parts of the world.  She is our first point of contact if you call or come in & visit us.

Graham - Senior Fabricator
