Readers of leading transport industry magazine What Van? have voted Trucksmith as Van Converter of the Year 2017.
Trucksmith was announced as the winner at an awards presentation in London in December 2016 attended by many of the major names in van production.
The company fought off stiff competition from 14 other vehicle converters to scoop the prestigious award.
Announcing the award, What Van? said: “Following its successful and popular debut in 2015, we have continued our reader-voted accolade for the third time. We asked readers to choose the best light commercial vehicle body builder or racking specialist from a 15-strong shortlist compiled by our expert panel.
“It is not difficult to understand why our readers voted for Trucksmith. The company has found a way around the traditional drawbacks of Luton vans, such as poor aerodynamics, high floors, and poor handling due to the high centre of gravity.”
Daniel Trebble, Managing Director at Trucksmith, said: “Thousands of our vans are now on the UK’s roads, and the public now recognises Trucksmith brands such as Renault Master LoLoader and Vauxhall Movano KneeHi.
“To think that they’ve voted for us over some worthy competition makes us incredibly proud and is an exceptional achievement for our business. It reflects our focus on innovation and quality, and our investment in state-of-the-art production facilities and well trained staff has been key to our success.”
Trucksmith pioneered the low-loading Luton van model and is an approved body builder for leading van marques including Renault, Vauxhall and Fiat.
