An Ystrad Mynach-based business has been named as ‘Van Converter of the Year’ at the 2020 WhatVan? Awards.
Vantastec Ltd were declared winners by a panel of industry experts at the ceremony, which was held at the Hilton Bankside Hotel in London.
The awards aim to showcase the best companies within the light commercial vehicles sector.
Vantastec managing directors Gareth Edwards and Colin Smith said: “It is truly an honour to be receiving such a prestigious trophy.
“The WhatVan? Awards are so crucial for our industry, so to be shortlisted as finalists for two years running was enough of a compliment in itself.
“Now, to be named Converter of the Year – an award we have looked to win for so long – is really the icing on the cake.”
The company was founded in Penallta in 2006, before moving to Ystrad Mynach in 2013.
They added: “We started the business from our home offices with next to nothing. So to see how far we have come makes us incredibly proud.
“For 13 years, we have worked to create the best product available on the market. Whether that be coffee vans, refrigerated vehicles, animal transport, bespoke conversions or anything in between.
“It is a credit to our amazing team of engineers and office staff. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
