The Bevan story began when Jim Bevan founded a bodybuilding company to serve the needs of rapidly expanding freight transport industry.
Three years of rapid growth and full order books resulted in a need for greater capacity. We haven’t slowed down since.
Another great leap forward saw us move toour own site, where we set up our facilities toprovide exactly what our customers needed.
The time was right to focus on specialities and increase our capacity further still. Our externalpaintshop was the ideal solution.
We brought together our comprehensive portfolio of support services to create Bevan Aftercare.
We continued our expansion by purchasing body repair and paint specialist Welford Thomas. It was the first of a series of major acquisitions.
Another major investment helped us to increase thecapacity of our repairs service and help morecustomers to stay on the road.
The Bevan21 reduces wind resistance while maintaining cubic load volumes, with features including a curved roof and a specially moulded air deflector and cab collar.
The design is capable of achieving fuel savings of up to 15% (independent test of 11 tonne version) and boosts mpg performance on multi-drop runs.
The Bevan21 is helping many commercial vehicle operators to achieve their carbon reduction targets, including major names such as AG Barr and Argos.
With demand for our bodies and vehicle services increasing, we responded by increasing our output and investing in the latest technology.
Another step forward saw us moving into the drinks transport sector, producing specialist vehicle bodies for multi-drop deliveries.
Designed for the fast-growing home delivery sector, the ICON employs advanced technology developed in partnership with Cranfield University and Hatcher Components.
Market-leading 1,200+kg payload for maximum productivity and a sleek, aerodynamic design to reduce costs by boosting fuel efficiency, as well as cutting carbon emissions.
Aerodynamic cab deflector and collar system; tail-lift compatibility; lightweight shutter with maximum security lock; ‘plug and play’ lighting with LED interior light.
Demand for our vehicle livery services grew to such an extent that Bevan Graphics was born as an expert department with the latest equipment.
We launched our safety system for dropside bodies, winner of an innovation award for Saint-Gobain in Paris.
By joining with the leading accident repair and refurbishment specialist, we secured our place as an industry leader.
We added another string to our bow by acquiring Supertrucks, the UKís most respected manufacturer of glass-carrying vehicle bodies.
