Cartwright Conversions Helps SMS Plc’s Installation Teams
Cartwright Conversions has won another order from Smart Metering Systems plc (SMS plc) to convert 29 Peugeot Expert vans into modern, efficient work vans for their installation teams in the field.
Working closely with the company’s fleet installation team, Cartwright’s engineers have designed a conversion that provides a bespoke and well-organised storage system for the wide variety of meters, tools and equipment required improving on efficiency, safety and customer service.
SMS is a specialist end-to-end energy services company providing everything from smart metering and data to the delivery of sustainability projects. Cartwright Conversions has been helping SMS plc to upgrade its fleet since 2017 and has already converted 80 Peugeot Experts and 5 Peugeot Boxers for the company.
Simon Morley of Cartwright Conversions, said: “We are delighted that SMS plc chose Cartwright Conversions to come up with an ergonomic and efficient solution for their installation teams.”
Yvonne Cannon, Fleet Installations Manager, SMS plc, said: “We have liaised with Cartwright Conversions in relation to designing the racking and, with the input from engineers and operations, have come up with a design that is fit for purpose which will enable the engineers to complete their work in a timely and efficient manner.”
The Peugeot Experts are fitted with a modular racking system that has deep crash tested shelves for safely storing various sized meters, pipework and installation tools.
A lockable gas cabinet is included in the conversion to transport hazardous material, along with ladder hooks and a safety net for the ultimate safe storage meters. The shelves have dividers, anti-rattle mats and sliding boxes for efficient storage of smaller parts.
The interior of the vehicle is finished with a durable, hardwearing lining, an anti-slip floor, a rotary air vent and LED lighting with automatic movement sensor.
