Devon-based specialist vehicle converter GM Coachwork marked the opening of its new multi-million pound manufacturing facility with a grand opening attended by key clients and suppliers addressed by guest speaker Mike Hawes, CEO of the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturer and Traders). 

This latest expansion comes on the heels of strong year-on-year growth for the company. The business has enjoyed healthy growth and demand for its range of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV’s) which they supply to the Motability scheme. The new premises allows the business to increase production to meet growing customer demand and simultaneously offer shorter delivery times for customers. 

GM Coachwork has grown significantly since its inception in 1988. As the second biggest supplier of vehicles to the Motability scheme GM also offers the largest range of drive-from wheelchair vehicles in the country. David Vooght CEO of GM Coachwork said: “We’re very pleased to announce the opening of a new production facility in Heathfield. This is not only an opportunity to bring more jobs to the area, but it also allows us to further expand our manufacturing capabilities and meet the growing needs of the market.”  

GM is a Motability Premier Partner and Managing Dealer. They are also the only convertor who offers low-floor conversions of the VW Transporter giving wheelchair users market-leading entrance and interior headroom. Their range of WAV’s is the largest on the Motability scheme giving wheelchair users an unrivalled choice of vehicles.  

GM are a multifaceted business also serving the minibus and camper-van markets.
