Our conversions set the standard others aim for

Our van conversions aren’t solely limited to refrigerated vans – we produce vans for frozen distribution as well as for the controlled ambient conditions required for GDP-compliant pharmaceutical product transportation. We can combine any mix of temperature zones to provide dual- and multi- temperature vans too.

Our conversions are distinguished by their attributes, which include:
  • Lightweight materials – Optimising productivity through payload.
  • Superior insulation – Minimizing the need for cooling power by maximising thermal integrity.
  • Manufacturer (OEM) accreditations – We uphold these by always respecting the guidance and the prohibitions of the OEM whose van we are modifying.
  • Hardwearing components – Durable in all environments.
  • Robust designs – Warranted to match the base vehicle’s warranty.
Our conversions feature:
  • A choice of refrigeration units from a wide range of manufacturers including GAH, Hubbard (Zanotti), Carrier Transicold, Thermo King (Trane Technologies) and Webasto.
  • A hardwearing, reinforced, waterproof interior which is easy to clean and offers a choice of floor surface finishes.
  • Floor reinforced by polypropylene weighs only a fraction of traditional timber reinforcement and won’t rot.
  • Extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation provides outstanding thermal performance.
  • Ultra-bright and long-lasting LED lighting is typically operated by door opening.
  • Full-width metal tread plates at each entrance minimise wear.
  • Many options are available including slab doors, drainage, mid-bulkheads, data recording, telemetry and load retention.
  • Our mobile engineering team offers discounted Service, Maintenance & Repair packages when chosen at the point of order.
