Ian Knight, Managing Director

A time served Welder Fabricator, mainly working in aluminium and at one time had coded welding status, with a good understanding of aluminium allowing limits to be pushed this has been invaluable with the innovation that has brought to the business.

Starting in the vehicle conversion industry in 1994, I have a huge amount of experience in the conversion market from rocket carriers to mobile screening vehicles to exhibition vehicles to the more run of the mill commercial bodywork.

I have a passion for anything with wheels; cars, motorbikes, pushbikes or anything that can be made to go faster or do more than was thought possible, so most weekends and holidays will be spent riding a bike, driving a car or planning the next outing.

Gary Robinson, Operations Director

As an experienced Operation and Production Manager, I’m able to bring depth of knowledge to all aspects of the business through from design to full production of a highly repeatable quality product meeting the exacting standards of our customer.’

I head up a team of highly motivated staff who have achieved ISO 9001-2000 and are currently working on implementing new and improved systems including European Whole Vehicle Type Approval which will increase the efficiency of the business and improve the whole customer experience.

Mark Adams, Production Director

With 28 years experience working in the commercial vehicle industry, I’m able to bring a depth of knowledge and hands-on experience to the business, while understanding the customer’s requirements.

Having worked alongside lean and continuous improvement experts over the last seven years, I have learnt how to produce our product portfolio to a very high standard, continually looking to drive costs out and improve efficiency in the vehicles we manufacture and the way we purchase.

I believe in earning respect from everyone I work with so there is a team focus across all levels of the business.
