Conversion adds chill appeal to Volkswagen vans

Specialist refrigerated conversions moulded to vehicle's shape.


Van conversion specialist TBC Conversions is reporting major demand for its refrigerated versions of the Volkswagen Caddy and Crafter vans.

The Northern Ireland based company launched the conversions for the latest VW LCVs at the Commercial Vehicle Show in April and they proved highly popular.

TBC has turned the vans into specialist units by creating refrigerated compartments using rigid panels, with units moulded to the body shape of the vehicle in order to maximise storage space.

The insulation kit comprises an interlocking assembly resting on a sealed, waterproof tray, with the panel kit manufactured with pressure-injected polyurethane foam, fitted directly to the shape of the van.

According to TBC managing director David Donnell, the converted Crafter and Caddy have proved desirable to a broad range of customers, being easily adaptable to suit their needs.

“Collaborating with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles on this project has extended our working relationship with the brand and given us a fantastic opportunity to use two of its most popular models to create a bespoke service that can appeal to a wide-range of clients and businesses,” Donnell says.

“Both models have huge cargo space available and their long body length provides the perfect platform on which to create units fit for specification for the customer,” he adds.

One of 22 specialist companies invited to join the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Converter Recognition Programme, TBC Conversions supplies the private, fleet, commercial, community and motability markets.
