Leeds engineering firm has new £2m vehicle conversion centre19 November 2018

Leeds-based engineering firm SM UK is investing £2 million in a new 10,000 sq ft vehicle conversion centre.

The company is best known for its Halo cyclist detection system, and it also designs and installs high-tech CCTV and security systems for commercial fleets.

The new facility, in the Gildersome area of Leeds, will kit out fleets with bespoke equipment. Contracts range from full van fit-outs, to security systems for large HGVs and communications equipment for NHS ambulances and other emergency vehicles.

The centre’s new workshop can accommodate 15 HGVs and, says managing director Steve MacDonald (pictured, centre), “will equip us to meet the rapidly growing demand across the north for both top quality safety systems and professionally delivered vehicle fit-outs and conversions”.

He adds: “We are looking to duplicate the model in the coming months with new facilities in the Midlands and the South East, and will inevitably be recruiting further skilled engineers to staff those new centres.”
