Having built a reputation for supplying high quality minibuses for the last decade, EVM UK is now looking to expand its offering even further by adding Iveco-based products and working with more partners to offer an even broader range.

Bespoke, prestige and high quality are just some of the things people tell the CBW team when they are talking about EVM minibuses they have purchased, so it comes as no surprise that the company has easily achieved a decade in the UK serving the industry.
With a bold vision statement setting out a clear view of where EVM sees itself in the market over the next 10 years – “to move people, and to do so in tomorrow’s technology, cutting edge style and with unmatched momentum” – the team at EVM have their sights clearly set on the future.

New premises

To mark it’s 10th birthday, EVM UK has invested heavily in shiny new premises in Southwater, West Sussex, just a short distance away from its previous home near Gatwick airport. With new modern offices for the sales, marketing and aftersales team, a dedicated workshop and parts store and an increase in parking for stock, the company is well dressed for the future.

“We know that strong relationships and flexibility are what drive true customer satisfaction, which is why we go above and beyond at every step of the process. Our exceptional customer service and meticulous engineering adapt to each and every order, providing a personal, tailored and truly end to end service,” stated Managing Director Danny McGee.

Sales and Marketing Director Peter Flynn said: “The thinking behind the new premises is all focused around elevating the customer experience, and how we differentiate ourselves against others in the market. Exemplary customer service.”

The story so far EVM set up in the UK in 2011 to give the company direct access to its growing UK customer base. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter-based minibus range has enjoyed substantial success in the market; in excess of 2,000 units have passed through the gates of the West Sussex-based company in the last 10 years.

The growing demand from its customers for larger capacity products lead the direction for adding other carefully engineered solutions to its portfolio. Armed with knowledge of its own manufacturing environment and the customer demand, the company firstly added the well respected Carbus Grand Tourer to the range in 2014.
