Bodybuilders and vehicle conversion companies are following up an impressive showing at CV Show 2013 with plenty of new products for visitors to see at this year’s event in Birmingham.

QI at the CV ShowOne of the companies involved in this area of the market, Qi, is celebrating 30 years in the business. With that experience, the company says it promises to provide a complete vehicle conversion service, specifically for LCVs, taking the customer through consultation, design, manufacture, through to the conversion itself, and beyond.

Qi says that it is attracting a growing number of van-oriented fleets that are asking for bespoke solutions, ranging from increased payload to extra protection, and is happy to deliver on any specification that is required.

Elsewhere, Ingimex is showing its latest product portfolio, and is committed to helping its customers out with any questions and concerns about the impending Whole Vehicle Type Approval for commercial vehicles.

Ingimex supplies a range of bodies for transport operators, such as dropside, Luton van, and tipper. Key to the company’s recent successes has been the use of aluminum panels, and weight optimisation techniques, which is resulting in lighter bodies and improved payloads.

The company says that its level of standard equipment is also proving popular with operators, as Ingimex bodies comes with top and bottom hung steel tail-boards with chapter 8 livery, a three-level load rail lashing assembly, and theft resistant hinges, to name just three.
