GT Covers, a division of Covercraft Industries, has completed a move into its new facility located in Aurora, Colorado.
Covercraft acquired GT Covers in the fall of 2017 and has invested in the expansion of the division while incorporating strategic manufacturing processes to increase efficiency. Though the move was not far in terms of distance, the results will be significant, according to Marty Lichtman, chief operating officer of Covercraft.
“We have really been able to reorganize our manufacturing process in a way that we feel will improve productivity and create a much better work environment for our team members,” said Lichtmann.
Expanding from 18,500 feet to 43,800 feet, the new GT Covers facility will allow for significant manufacturing growth to include not only the GT Covers product lines but also introduce new capacity for Covercraft product lines.
“I am really excited for the future of GT Covers,” said Gary Walsh, former CEO of GT Covers and current vice president of custom seat covers and design for Covercraft. “With the significant investment Covercraft has made in the new, state-of-the-art facility, GT Covers is strategically positioned for increased capacity and future growth.”
The move has been completed and new machinery is currently being installed to initiate further production and capacity growth. “This expansion positions Covercraft as the industry’s largest custom seat cover manufacturer,” said Morgan Ein, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Covercraft.
Currently, GT Covers is producing exact fit seat covers that are crafted to fit consumers’ make, model and year of vehicle including seat belt cutouts, gear shifts, armrests and headrests. Many fabric options are available including Endura, Carhartt, genuine leather, Neoprene and more.
