ETRUX Awarded Prestigious Ford Pro Convertor Status Ahead of Commercial Vehicle Show

Ahead of the Commercial Vehicle (CV) show, taking place at the NEC, Birmingham from 23rd – 25th April, Antrim and Birmingham based company, ETRUX, which operates under JANS Group, has been awarded the prestigious Ford Pro Convertor status.

Specialising in the design and conversion of lightweight commercial vehicles as well as assisting fleet managers in the journey from diesel to electric fleet via its EVolve programme, ETRUX is only one of two companies on the island of Ireland to hold this esteemed accolade, providing assurance for customers in both the UK and Irish markets that its vehicles are converted to the highest standards.

Further cementing ETRUX as one of the leading manufacturers in the vehicle conversion market, the company achieved a rate of 95.6%, far exceeding the pass mark of 85%, which saw the team being rigorously assessed on their processes, stock control and design.

“I am delighted that ETRUX has been awarded the Ford Pro Convertor status. Our team works extremely hard to deliver the very best quality vehicle solutions for our customers – and that has now been proven,” commented Gerard Galvin, ETRUX Managing Director.

“We are committed to providing excellence and continual improvement is something we pride ourselves on at ETRUX. Completing programmes like the Ford Pro Convertor status is extremely valuable and beneficial as it ensures that we can continue to provide this for our customers going forward.”

Commending ETRUX on its recent status, Paul O’Sullivan at Ford added: “I would like to extend my congratulations to Gerard, Gareth and the entire team at ETRUX on what is an excellent achievement, and certainly no mean feat.

“At Ford, we have built our reputation on delivering vehicles of the highest quality standards and in order to continue doing this in the years to come, we continue to collaborate with the very best industry partners. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards across all our vehicles, with safety and comfort at the forefront.” 

Meanwhile, ETRUX will be launching its new Ford E-Transit Welfare vehicle during the Commercial Vehicle Show, which is the company’s latest addition to its converted electric van range, ideal for construction, engineering, utility, film and mobile medical organisations.

Alongside the company’s EVolve programme, Gerard claims that the launch of these solely electric vehicles will play an essential role in the UK government’s Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Mandate and will go a long way towards assisting companies to achieve the Net Zero target.

“There are a host of benefits to switching to electric vehicles and through EVolve, we want to demonstrate to fleet owners and transport managers across various sectors, that the transition can be achieved with minimal stress and disruption to daily operations,” Gerard explained.

“Our expert team will work alongside our customers to guide them through the entire process from conducting the initial feasibility study to the supply of the right product and finally, managing vehicle disposal at the end-of-life stage.

“We are all acutely aware of the lower running costs, reduced noise pollution, enhanced driving experience and the positive impact on the environment that moving to electric vehicles will offer. We are confident that our new Ford E-Transit vehicle range will offer companies a reliable solution to meet their needs and requirements.

“We’re very excited to showcase the 3.5T Ford E-Transit Welfare vehicle during the upcoming Commercial Vehicle Show alongside our charging infrastructure and GRP partners.”

Additionally, a new temperature-controlled E-Transit Trizone vehicle is also currently under development with ETRUX, which will service supermarkets and other perishable goods delivery services.

The ETRUX team is exhibiting at stand 5D88 with members of its EVolve Consultancy team, conversion specialists, GRP sister company, JANS Composites and charging infrastructure partner, Weev.
