JC Payne are proud to announce the company’s acceptance to the Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) Programme.
This scheme was introduced to accredit converters who modify vans and chassis cabs, ensuring they meet Ford’s high standards for both manufacturing processes and finished product. The intention of the QVM Programme is to safeguard the level of quality of all vehicle conversions on offer under it, as they are recommended to the Ford dealer network by the manufacturer itself.
To achieve Ford QVM status, converters must meet Ford’s exacting standards through every stage, from design to production, quality control and delivery, with each area being regularly assessed by Ford.
Qualified Vehicle Modifiers are expected to prove that their converted vehicles have adhered to Ford’s Body and Equipment Mounting Manual (BEMM) and can demonstrate there is in place satisfactory liability insurance. JC Payne conversions under the QVM Programme benefit from a warranty that matches Ford’s own regarding mileage and duration.
Ford Chief Engineer (SVE) Simon Robinson quoted “I’m really proud to include JC Payne into the QVM accredited family for Ford Commercial Vehicles – The multitude of quality conversions available through JC Payne will be a valuable addition to the existing line-up of conversions available on the Transit Vehicle line. I am looking forward to exciting opportunities in the future with this partnership, for both growth in sales volume and niche opportunities within the convertor industry.”
JC Payne Managing Director Neil Brandrick commented “we are delighted to be joining the QVM family at Ford, which is a great testament to the hard work and high standards of all of our team. All of us as a company believe in the JCP Way – we are proud of our products, proud of our people and proud of our customers. Becoming a member of the QVM programme is a very exciting development for our business that exemplifies our values of customer service and a relentless focus on quality perfectly. It is a milestone of which we are all very proud.”
