Air Covers has been given the Queen’s Award for International Trade, by the Lord Lieutenant of Powys at the company’s premises on Wrexham Industrial Estate. The Award is the highest independent business accolade in the UK and reflects year on year growth by the specialist protective cover company. Air Covers uses 3D Lidar scanning to create bespoke and form-fitting protection for helicopters, aircraft, boats and vehicles around the world. Exporting more than 65% of their production, Air Covers has seen increasing demand for specialist protection from manufacturers in the UK and overseas. 

Air Covers recently won the contract to supply the fleet of Royal Navy Merlin helicopters with full protection while operating from HMS Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales. The company also won the contract to protect the Norwegian Search and Rescue helicopter fleet. 

Managing Director John Pattinson “It was great to be able to thank so many of our key stakeholders, including our amazing Air Covers Team, Lesley Griffiths, Airbus, Wrexham Council and the International Trade Team for Wales. As Ryan Reynolds says, moving to Wrexham is a choice you won’t regret!”

Lesley Griffiths, Member of the Senedd for Wrexham, attended the presentation and said: “Air Covers are fully deserving of this prestigious award.  I have closely followed John and the team’s progress since they moved to Wrexham and I am proud a local business is continuing to manufacture state-of-the-art, bespoke products that are recognised and sought after all over the world.

“Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, the aerospace sector is thriving and the future is bright for Air Covers.”
