We’re well-known for selling Sortimo van racking, and we couldn’t be more excited about the long awaited SR5 system. Lighter, streamlined and easier to fit, it’s a huge advancement.
But did you know we also sell two other van racking systems? System Edström and Hubb Systems.
Because Sortimo SR5 is a premium product, we had to think long and hard about which other systems to include in our range. Any new additions had to sit comfortably alongside such an iconic van racking system. Quality, value for money, durability, safety, the warranty and the visual aesthetic were all essential considerations when it came to making our final selection. But so also were lead times, price point, sustainability and country of origin.
Taking into consideration all of these factors, the choice was straightforward.
An Introduction To System Edström
System Edström is Sweden’s leading manufacturer and installer of van racking solutions. The company has been part of the Corby community for 30 years. During this time, the clients have included the Murphy Group, Baxi and Linde. Edström is a member of the Ford Motor Company’s Quality Vehicle Management programme, and the official van converter for Ford’s mobile service vehicle fleet.
Edström has been awarded ISO14001:2015 for its Environmental Management System and conducts its crash-testing in France. (The iNRS NS286 standard is widely regarded in the industry as a more stringent standard than the British test). And the company is always innovating. E-LCV on-board power, a brand-new system to power all your electricals, is one such example.
Finally, because Edström manufactures here in the UK, lead times are around 5 days.
An Introduction To Hubb System
Hubb is run by husband and wife team, Clive and Lucy Harris, from their factory in Redditch, Worcestershire, and they are very proud to be a British innovator and manufacturer, and supporters of the Made In Britain campaign.
While Hubb Systems is the most affordable of our van racking ranges, it stands up well in terms of quality, value for money, durability, safety, the warranty and the visual aesthetic. They were awarded the ISO 14001 accreditation for ‘Environmental Assurance’ in 2019.
Lead times are impressive. If you place your order by 3:30pm, Monday to Friday, your product/s can be dispatched on a next working day basis, so long as you’re located within the UK mainland. (Fleet orders may be subject to a longer lead time). Plus for fleet customers, there’s the additional benefit of a dedicated delivery service, using a company vehicle and driver, meaning your order arrives on time and in perfect condition.
Our mission this summer is to help more tradespeople impress their customers. That’s why - through June to the end of July - we’re offering 10% off our three van racking systems. Your code to make use of this offer is Summer10. Your order must be placed by no later than 31st July, 2019.
