VIMH Conveyor System Solution for US Electric Car Manufacturer
V Installations Mechanical Handling Ltd supplied a new body transfer conveyor system to a prestigious North American electric car manufacturer for their new Electric powered vehicle facility.
The conveyor system was designed and manufactured by the V Installations team in our facility in Solihull and shipped over to California.
This underlines our intention to become a global supplier to the automotive industry.
The project was delivered under tight and compressed time scales, and V Installations are immensely proud to have met this expectation, delivering the conveyor within the allocated time frame.

V Installations to Appear in 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain
We are so proud to announce that V Installations Mechanical Handling Ltd will be appearing in London Stock Exchange’s upcoming publication, ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.
The publication is London Stock Exchange Group’s celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises in the UK and Europe. As well as identifying 1,000 companies, the annual reports examine in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs, as well as looking at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the British and European economies.
V Installations were chosen to appear in the report as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic companies in the UK, and it is to be launched next month.
We were also invited to celebrate the VIP launch of the report and V Installations inclusion in the publication on 10th May 2017 in London, with a ceremony at the London Stock Exchange to open morning trading and a VIP reception at No.10 Downing Street.
The launch was an excellent night of celebrating SMEs across UK and Europe, and we couldn’t be happier that we were given the chance to be a part of it.
Bike 2 Work Scheme
We’re delighted to announce that V Installations will be taking part in the Bike 2 Work Scheme.
This scheme is a great way for employees to save up to 42% off the cost of a bike.
The scheme was introduced by the government in 1999 to “promote healthier journeys to work and reduce environmental pollution”. The scheme has already been used by hundreds of thousands of people across the UK.
How the Bike 2 Work scheme works
Your employer buys the bike of your choice up to a value of £1,000. The employee then pays that cost back (minus the VAT) over 12 months.
Why use the Bike 2 Work scheme?
- You’ll live longer – according to the NHS
- It’ll make you feel happier and healthier, as getting outside in the sunshine boosts your levels of vitamin D
- The scheme saves the entire CO2 output of a city the size of HEREFORD each year
- Cycling to work can help you burn between 75 and 670 calories a journey, depending on how far you have to go
- You’ll save money on commuting
Devil Mud Run 2016
On the 17th September, V Installations entered a team into the Devil Mud Run.
The course is a world class level obstacle course comprising of 31 obstacles over 8KM, obstacles include the Satan’s steps, Hay Bale Mountain, Swamp Thing, Ice Dip, Slippery Slope and of course a Giant Wall.
The Team included Sarah (Team Leader), Sarah’s friend, Ray Hough, Reagan Jones Jr, Reagan Jones Snr, Jake, Chris Bartlam, and Steve Trow.
After a vigorous warm up, those with any breath left set off in Wave 1 at 10.30.
After setting off from bottom of the hill, the team pushed themselves upwards, conquering the 31 obstacles and getting caked in mud in the process.
Despite the months of preparation and pain, the team were satisfied with a race well run, raising money for Kids Out, a charity that gives disadvantaged children positive experiences to support them becoming future members of society.
A huge thanks goes out to the team who put themselves through the Devil Run, and more importantly, those who were so generous in sponsoring us.
Preparation for the 2017 Mud Run has already commenced!
BS EN 1090 Conformance
We are pleased to announce that on 2nd September 2016, V Installations Mechanical Handling Ltd have received a certificate of commitment from the Centre for Assessment, confirming that V Installations have made a commitment to the implementation and certification of a Factory Production Control that conforms to the requirements of BS EN 1090 within Fabrication of Structural Steel Work.
Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This means that aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1.
The scope of EN 1090 is very broad, including
- Structural steel and aluminium components
- Fabrications and kits of parts manufactured from steel and aluminium
- Steel components used in composite steel and concrete structures
The EN 1090 is the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork and covers any structural component that has been designed and fabricated to meet the BS EN 1991 series of standards (Eurocode 3 and 9) for steel and aluminium structures in buildings.
