Gilgen Door’s vans have been supplied direct with full livery and racking

The company is a leading manufacturer of automatic doors, industrial doors and sliding-walls, and the latest vehicles – 20 Transporter and four Crafter panel vans – will be used by the firm’s service teams.

The vehicles have been supplied direct with full livery and bespoke racking systems, developed in partnership with Gilgen, to carry the specialist parts and equipment that the firm’s service team require during the day.

Roger Massey, marketing manager at Gilgen Door Systems UK Ltd, commented: “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has worked closely with us to develop a package that suits our exact business needs. As a business, we were able to specify our fleet requirements with the sales team and they helped to source the racking for vehicles through their accredited converters. This meant that the vans were ready to go as soon as they were delivered.”
