Cartwright to showcase Conversions at CV Show

Cartwright Conversions will display two vehicles at the Commercial Vehicle Show next month on a stand dedicated to showcasing their conversions, in hall 5 at the NEC.

The Yorkshire-based converter will show its popular eight-seat welfare vehicle built on a Ford Transit together with a Peugeot Expert fitted with modular racking, on stand 5D70.

Cartwright's welfare vehicle is uniquely designed with a patented rear facing toilet which can be accessed separately to the storage area in the back of the vehicle.

Built with eight travelling seats for maximum capacity its welfare facilities include a heater, hot water boiler, hand wash facilities, a microwave and a 25 litre electric flush toilet.

The conversion has approved manufacturer status from Ford as part of Cartwright's acceptance onto its Qualified Vehicle Modifier Programme.

Only a handful of companies in the Country have this accreditation which shows that a converter can build to Ford's high standards.

Commercial and Operations Director of Cartwright Conversions, Steve Shaw said: "We are looking forward to showing our Ford approved welfare conversion at the CV Show.

"The Ford Transit is extremely versatile and is a good fit for our conversion. Our eight seat design maximises the Transit's capacity and is fully loaded with facilities for remote working."

Visitors to the Show will also be able to see Cartwright's racking conversion built on a Peugeot Expert for smart metering business, SMS Plc.

The medium-sized van is fitted with Sortimo's Globelyst Racking to carry specialist equipment. Modular in design, the storage solution includes cable reel holders and a mix of shelf sizes for storing meters and other parts and tools.

Cartwright Conversions is part of the renowned Cartwright Group, well known for its trailer manufacturing and bodybuilding. The Manchester-based business has over 900 staff and a turnover of more than £138 million.

The Cartwright Group will also be exhibiting at the CV Show in hall 3A on stand 3A90.
