This is the result of taking risks and exploring new opportunities during covid.
During a catch up meeting with United Rental Group back in 2020, Per Voegel briefly mentioned welfare vans to us and the demand for them at that time. The very next day, we pulled one of our rental panel vans into the conversions department and set to creating our first welfare van.
I then travelled around in our new Welfare Demonstrator, visiting businesses that were on our radar, Farrington’s Commercials being one of them. Ian Farrington, having many year’s experience in this sector, gave us feedback on our first product.
I didn’t hear from Ian again for a few months, when we then started to discuss other products we offered such as dropsides, dropsides with tail lifts, tippers, lutons etc. As time went on and we both got to know each other, Ian expressed an interest in investing in our conversions department.
With Ian’s experience, he could see the harmony of a conversions business working together with a van sales business. After some negotiation, Dack Vans was launched.
As of April 2023, Farrington’s Commercials and Dack Vans have officially merged. Together we have been selling vans since July 2022, we’re off to a great start with an amazing team, and we’re only just scratching the surface. We have huge plans for the future, it’s all very exciting!
