Leading fleet van converter Bott has partnered with Van Excellence to continue its commitment to high standards of production of in-vehicle equipment and workplace systems.
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) scheme was launched in 2010 to promote high standards of van operation and driving by accrediting operators against an industry code of good practice. This was with the aim to raise standards and improve the public’s perception of vans, light commercial vehicles, the businesses and the organisations that operate them.
With production facilities in Germany, the United Kingdom and Hungary, alongside licensed partners and importers across the globe, Bott has a worldwide service network enabling them to respond to local needs. Partnership of the scheme will enable them to take other fleets through the same Van Excellence process, helping them to achieve the accreditation as well as promoting the code amongst customers and encourage its standards to be adopted and followed throughout the commercial vehicle sector.
From design and manufacture to supply and installation, the company has a strong reputation for high product quality, service excellence and value for money with meticulous attention to detail. This was all clearly demonstrated in the formal audit to assess their achievement of the standard expected of the Van Excellence Code, obtained in March this year, and this subsequent partnership.
Managing Director of Bott's Specialist Vehicle Divisions, Kevin Woodward, said; “The purpose of Van Excellence is to demonstrate high standards of van operation beyond that currently required by law. By partnering this scheme we are able to take our fleet customers through to accreditation demonstrating our support for van operators and their drivers and their commitment to high standards of support and service.”
Kevin added; “At Bott, we take a genuine pride in our work. It's an attitude which drives every stage of the process, from consultancy and design to installation and handover. Our team has a passion for what they do and it's why they are always developing innovative products which enhance customer solutions. The Van Excellence Partnership means that we can promote the Van Excellence code amongst our present and future customers, encouraging its standards to be adopted and followed.”
