SM UK opens second vehicle conversion workshop

Vehicle conversion and safety system specialist SM UK has expanded its UK operations further with the opening of a new 13,000 sq ft vehicle conversion workshop in the Midlands.

The facility is the firm’s second, and launches a year after the business opened its first vehicle conversion centre in Leeds.

The new site is located in Tamworth, close to the M42 motorway network, and will enable SM UK clients to undergo vehicle safety and CCTV system installations with rapid turnaround times.

The facility will provide bespoke fit-out and conversion services for SM UK’s customers, ranging from blue-chip commercial vehicle manufacturers and distributors, to professional tradespeople with a single van.

As well as fitting the firm’s own HALO cyclist awareness system, the new workshop will offer the firm’s full range of installation services, as well as commercial vehicle CCTV and modern internal racking systems.

SM UK managing director Steve MacDonald said: “Our northern conversion centre in Leeds has proved a huge success in the year since it launched, enabling us to collect and work on customers’ vehicles in a professional and modern environment without taking up time and space at their own premises.

“We’re opening the new Midlands centre on the same model as our Leeds workshop.

“Initially it will be a great resource for our many existing Midlands-based customers, including Mercedes, Volvo and DAF. We are extremely well located for the Leicester, Birmingham and Northampton areas, and we hope to attract new clients in the region as we grow.”
