Coverlay Manufacturing, Inc. originated in Denver, Colorado in 1982 and incorporated as Import Auto Products, Ltd., a Colorado corporation.
The original purpose of the company at the time of incorporation was to import after marketauto body parts from Taiwan and Italy and sell them to body shops in the Denver area.
In the spring of 1983, they attended a trade show seeking new suppliers. At that show, they discovered a formed plastic dash cover for the Datsun 240Z. They purchased a few for resale. The typical response was "That's great! Do you have a dash cover for my vehicle?"
Being confident and ambitious, the company declared "Those dash covers can't be hard to make - bet we can do it.'' Six months later, they had the first dash cover they could sell.
In November 1983, the company's team attended the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Trade Show in Las Vegas as an exhibitor. They proudly displayed their first twelve dash covers and they were overwhelmed by the response from the automotive industry.
In 1992, after battling lost production from snow days, needing more space and a centralized location for shipping purposes, Import Auto Products, Ltd. moved to its present location in San Angelo, Texas.
Since the Coverlay® trademark became recognized throughout the automotive industry, they officially changed their name to Coverlay Manufacturing, Inc. in 1994.
Today, the company's mission is to supply the consumer with a quality product at the lowest possible price.
