History

TBC Conversions is a vehicle conversion company specialising in the conversion and adaption of vehicles across a number of business sectors throughout the UK and ROI.

Established in 2005 the company operated from a modest rural location with a small workforce but with the drive and determination to deliver the highest quality conversion and adaptation work possible.

The company name "TBC" - an acronym for "Taxi and Bus Conversions" - became synonymous with engineering skill, craft and customer service and the reputation grew across Ireland and into the United Kingdom. With a growing reputation and workforce, TBC began to specialise in more specific areas and as well as their conversion and adaptation work in taxis and buses, the company focused in the wheelchair accessible vehicle market, initially with the adaptation and conversion of the VW Caddy Maxi Life, becoming the first conversion company in the UK to secure the highest standard of safety testing. (ECWVTA / European Type Approval).

The company was increasing its capability, area of expertise and workforce and as a result of winning new contracts and strengthening existing relationships with manufacturers and partners, the company made the decision to re-brand the business and to relocate to a new state-of-the-art facility.

The move to the new 28,000 square foot facility was only 1 mile from the existing site but allowed the company to deal with growing demand, increasing capacity and production levels, whilst retaining a focus on customer care.

"TBC" became TBC Conversions, targeting 3 distinct business sectors:

  1. TBC Mobility Conversions: converting and adapting vehicles for those customers and organisations within the mobility and wheelchair accessible vehicle markets
  1. TBC Specialist Conversions: converting and adapting vehicles for those businesses, organisations and individuals who have needs for “specialist” conversions, including ply-lining, shelving, roof-racks, refrigeration, seating systems, etc…
  1. TBC Taxi and Bus Conversions: converting and adapting vehicles for taxi companies and minibus users across the UK.
