CONGRATULATIONS ON FIFTEEN YEARS OF VB-AIRSUSPENSION UK LTD.!
Oliver Drinkwater - Managing Director VB-Airsuspension UK Ltd.
“I initially approached Iginio Voorhorst and Eric Bruil in the Autumn of 2005, with the idea of combining our knowledge of air-suspension and setting up a joint-venture to help them grow their business into the UK market, and it’s fair to say there was a cautious response at first. But six months of constructive discussion and planning led to the formation of VB-Airsuspension UK Ltd., on 16th June 2006.
As we approach our 15th anniversary, I suspect none of us had any idea that the company (alongside a now much-wider VB-Group) would grow to where it is today. What we did have in those early days though, was an energy, determination, and commitment that we would learn what was needed to succeed and that nobody would work harder than us to achieve our goals and support our customers.
In the past 15 years, VB-UK has grown into a team of 7 highly skilled and motivated specialists, with a growing Partner network that supports over 10,000 vehicles across the UK on a day-to-day basis. We take great pride in the knowledge that we support a wide range of customers and applications, including front-line ambulances, wheelchair-accessible vehicles, utility vehicles, motorhomes, recovery vehicles and home-delivery vehicles amongst others.
It’s very difficult to predict what the next 15 years might bring, with the impending switch to EV’s and other fundamental changes to the way we live our lives, but I’m convinced that we will keep bringing the same energy, determination and commitment to learning and supporting our customers that we’ve brought for the past 15.”
