The accreditation is only awarded to a handful of converters in the UK and allows Cartwright to show its conversions in Ford dealerships.
Steve Shaw, commercial and operations director, Cartwright Conversions, said: “We are delighted to have achieved Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier status.
“The Ford Transit is an iconic vehicle that is relied upon by thousands of businesses and is also extremely versatile, making it ideal for conversions. We are looking forward to a long and productive relationship with Ford.”
While there are two mobility conversions – a Ford Transit Minibus and a Ford Transit Custom – the relationship with Ford extends across Cartwright Conversions’ product range.
The company recently supplied Lincolnshire Police with ten modified Ford Kuga patrol vehicles to help officers tackle rural crime.
