Here at MIS we have a 26,000 sqft production facility to house all our specialist and larger conversions. We offer a one-stop shop solution for fleet operators and provide a wide range of services, including Vantage Systems quality galvanised steel racking and glass frails, Welfare Vehicles and specialist conversions, Rhino and Van Guard roof racks, light bars, graphics, vehicle electrics, on-board power systems, van steps, wash systems, vehicle electrics, vehicle security plus many more.
We always take the time to fully understand our customer’s needs, then design and create a specification for them to assess and suggest any amendments. Once a final spec is designed this is put into production and built exactly to any bespoke requirements. All our specifications and ideas are crafted into a CAD drawing so the end user can visualise exactly how the finished article will look.
Our Vantage Systems van racking is UK Manufactured in 5 – 10 working days – meaning your project could transform from concept through to completion in just two weeks. Made from bright galvanised steel shelves with black powder-coated end-frames, our racking is tough, durable, yet looks great in any commercial vehicle. We can then combine this with our lightweight, wipe clean grey foam-board wall linings to really complete the look and provide a safe working environment – these linings are self-extinguishing and don’t absorb liquids.
Customers are welcome to visit our facility at any time during the design or installation process to inspect any work in production and be rest assured the quality is of the highest standard.
We are Type Approved under the N1 Enhancement Scheme, Certified to ISO:9001 and are Safecontractor certified. In addition to our in-house capabilities, we also have a nationwide field-force of mobile engineers to support our valued customer base, which also enables us to carry out a range of installation work and retrofit projects on site.
We have been assessed and regictered by ACS Registrars Ltd against the following Quality Management System requirements:>
ISO 9001: 2008
The scope of registration is:
"Provision Mobile Installations, Vehicle Conversions and Online Sales"
After working closely with the VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency) Mobile Installation Solutions have attained their CoP (Certificate of Production)
What does this mean to our customers?
The VCA has created a new method of approving category N1 goods vehicles, in general terms this means we will be able to gain approval for N1 goods vehicles that already have a ECWVTA ( European Whole Vehicle Type Approval) but have been modified with aspects that fall In Scope of the Type Approval N1 Enhancement Scheme.
In short you can be assured that the work we perform and the parts we fit that require Type Approval are of the required standard and our management systems are able to record this and gain further approval where required ensuring your vehicle gets registered with the correct information with the DVLA.
The whole scheme has caused confusion in the industry but if the Fleet Managers, lease companies & Dealers use a company like our that has a valid CoP (Certificate of Production) they will be able to still get there conversions done with confidence and comply with current legislation.
Type Approval Statement
A statement was released stating that 80% of van conversions will not need to meet any Type Approval under the N1 Enhancement Scheme whilst this is true there are still many hazards to watch for along the way as a Fleet Operator or sole trader, a lot of products and conversions do fall "out of scope" under the scheme if they are fitted in a certain way they could fall "in scope" this is why it is advised that you select a converter to ensure all the rules are met, converters who have not undergone this process are not are of the rules in the IVA Manual and the process's that should be met. Our advice is that is you need to be sure that your conversion meets any criteria that may cause you problems in the future ask the converter if they have a valid CoP (certificate of production) and ask to see it, if you do this you will stay within the rules providing you follow their advice.
