A cen­tury of can­vas and vinyl ex­pe­ri­ence

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - CRUISE CONTROL | -

ES­TAB­LISHED in Bris­bane in the 1930s but lo­cally owned and op­er­ated in Cairns since the 1970s, Pick­ers Vinyl and Can­vas are the re­gion’s long­est-run­ning can­vas goods man­u­fac­turer.

With more than 100 years of ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween its owner/ man­agers, plus a team of qual­i­fied trades­men and longterm ma­chine op­er­a­tors, the ser­vice and ad­vice of­fered at Pick­ers comes from the most knowl­edge­able back­grounds.

The team at Pick­ers spe­cialises in shade sails and water­proof mem­branes, but also have a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence de­sign­ing, fab­ri­cat­ing and fit­ting ton­neau cov­ers and canopies for util­ity ve­hi­cles, boats and car­a­vans.

“All our cov­ers are de­signed to keep the el­e­ments out while also re­main­ing ex­tremely durable,” says Pick­ers’ di­rec­tor, Mark Leit­ner.

“We pro­vide cus­tom work and aim to please the cus­tomer by pro­vid­ing them with a prod­uct that has been specif­i­cally de­signed and tai­lored to meet their ex­act needs.” Pick­ers have a wide va­ri­ety of colours and ma­te­ri­als avail­able for their ton­neau cov­ers and also fab­ri­cate all frame­work and an­cil­lar­ies re­quired to fit them to your ve­hi­cle.

They use Aus­tralian-made fab­rics wher­ever pos­si­ble and keep up to date with the lat­est in­dus­try tech­nolo­gies, says Mark.

“We own and use a Pathfinder au­to­mated plot­ter cut­ter, which is op­er­ated us­ing full com­puter-aided de­sign tech­nol­ogy and can cut sin­gu­lar or bulk items with ac­cu­racy and speed,” he says.

“This is used for our in-house jobs, but can also be used by oth­ers want­ing to out­source their work and save time.”

Pick­ers Vinyl and Can­vas can de­sign, fab­ri­cate and fit ton­neau cov­ers and canopies for util­ity ve­hi­cles, boats and car­a­vans.
