What is Qualified Vehicle Modifier Program?

The QVM scheme has been in existence in the US for 30 years and has now been introduced to Ford UK to underwrite the quality of Ford converted vehicles.

The programme aims to build relationships between specialist companies such as Bri-Stor Systems, who by modifying Ford vehicles, help to contribute to the success of Ford Motor Company. In return, Ford hopes to contribute to the success of these specialist companies by approving them throughout their networks.

The overall goal of the Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM ) program from Ford's perspective is the production of higher quality vehicles and improved customer satisfaction.

    'Ford accredited Qualified Vehicle Modifiers are there to fulfil customer's highly specialised needs. Each QVM is individually and regularly checked by Ford to ensure they operate to exacting standards, offering the same guarantees and warranties as Ford'

Iain Brooks, Transit/ Custom Product Marketing Manager, Ford of Britain.

Ford dealerships are now able to offer a commercial fleet racking conversion service from a trusted one-stop-shop, affording them peace of mind that quality, safety and delivery will not be compromised.

In addition, Ford customers using Bri-Stor Systems for their commercial vehicle conversion will be able to keep their full Ford warranty.

• Representative vehicles in process
• Customer support systems

Having demonstrated a strict adherence to Ford's Body and Equipment Mounting Manual (BEMM) throughout the entire process, auditors were happy to approve Bri-Stor Systems as their first and only UK commercial vehicle racking converter.
