inovad received a brief to design and manufacture the metalwork for a VW Transporter van. A design to incorporate a set of large heavy-duty drawers that could be used for work tools during the week. Then at the weekend, could be converted into camping storage with a double bed that pulls out over the rear seats was requested. The drawers also had to house a camping stove and chopping board.
The metalwork frame and drawers bolt directly to the existing lashing points of VW Transporter vans.
After carrying out design meetings and finalising the three-dimensional CAD file we produced and sent to our customer, we were ready to manufacture.
We fabricated a set of jigs to speed up production and keep the cost down on future orders. We built the framework and drawers, powder coated it, and assembled the whole unit into the van. The wood was then screwed to the tabs that were welded to the framework.
Several fittings were carried out at various points of manufacture to ensure the functionality of the design. As a result a bespoke high quality product exceeding the expectaion was delivered, on time and within budget.
Our customer was very pleased with our service and their final product and gave us a 5-star Google rating.
The transporter pod is now being marketed across the UK.
