GM Coachwork is celebrating 30 great years as one of the leading wheelchair accessible converters.

GM Coachwork celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018, and the Devon converter continues to go from strength-to-strength, with excellent year-on-year growth and no sign of that slowing.

Over the years, accessible vehicles have become a major part of GM’s workload, heralding innovation such as industry first, low-floor conversion of a Volkswagen Caravelle. It formed the foundation of a range of new drive-from-wheelchair vehicles with full-length lowered floors.


Founder and CEO, David Voogt has headed the business from the beginning and said: “Ten years on and it remains the only conversion of its type. It was also given a Letter of No Objection – the closest it is possible to get to OEM approval – from Volkswagen, which tested it at its facility in Wolfsburg.” In 2009 GM went on to launch the Citroen Berlingo WAV; at the time, the only Berlingo conversion on the market.

Little wonder that in 2009 GM was awarded Motability WAV Converter of the Year, and was commended in the same category in 2010. The main production facility was also extended to satisfy customer demand.

“As we enjoy our 30th anniversary year, GM has grown to become firmly established as one of the UK’s leading vehicle converters,” says David.

“While times have changed since 1988, our passion to develop new products and innovate will always be there.”
