Misty was our Chief Barking Officer. For many years she was in charge of all the chaps and ensured productivity and quality control were at maximum output. She greeted customers and enjoyed barking at courier drivers and the postman. She also liked to keep us all reminded that we need a good stock of dog biscuits. Sadly we lost her to old age in 2020 but her memory lives on. She was a ray of sunshine.
From his opulent Scottish marble office he runs the show. Talk, oh yes, he can! At 16 Kenny began an apprenticeship in panel beating and painting for a busy Vauxhall dealership. Once he gained his City and Guilds qualifications, he moved on to work for Bombardier the train manufacturer. Following this he worked in Banbury, painting Renault Williams touring cars. Occasionally he does some work but not often. Blah, blah, blah (said Kenny with his masking tape halo).
Ayup, it’s John, joint company director with Kenny, He grafts on vans and is technical design lead for our conversions. He is really “northern”, in fact totally NORTHERN (say it loudly and proudly and pat a whippet)! John started his career serving a three-year City and Guilds on site apprenticeship. He followed this with a further seven years in the construction industry working as carpenter joiner. After this time he refined his skills as a bench joiner, building bespoke furniture and hand crafted hotel interiors.
Likes wine, Irish dancing, baking and living for the day when someone chooses to have a pink themed conversion. Aside from all of this Jo looks after our clients, deals with the accounts and does something called admin (which she tells us should involve a significant wage rise, a plush office, a new computer, Chanel N°5 and champagne for everyone).
Jay is Kenny’s nephew and has served his 35 year Ecowagon apprenticeship as a technician and fitter. Over the last few years he has learned to expertly fit pop tops, prepare vehicles for paint, carpet line and insulate vans to a highly professional standard. He doesn’t like his picture being taken (possibly something to do with his A-list celebrity status, “no pictures, I said no pictures”)!
CNC is his thing. Mouse in hand he operates our CAD system to create the most exquisite interiors for your VW conversion. Alex also works as an expert assembler with John and the team. His work ethic is so assiduous it’s rumoured he has to plug into the mains at night for a full recharge. Go on Alex, smile.
The bloke who professionally installs the electrics in your van. Arms like a wrestler and the precision of a watchmaker, Rimas is a super-tech and knows VW electricals backwards and forwards. Likes beer, likes drinking beer, likes brewing beer. Motorbikes. Tattoos. Loud (shit) music. Radio technics.
Every firm needs an apprentice and Ben is a rather good one. He gets to try everything including Kenny’s brutal whit. He enjoys surfing, working on classic VW’s and owns and drives a classic Beetle (not his fault). For Christmas he’s going to get a year’s supply of elbow grease, a long stand and a metric adjustable spanner.
He spends his time at Ecowagon cabinet fitting and working on expert joinery. Some say he owns a special tool that he sharpens to perfection every night – maybe that’s why the Ecowagon finish is so good. Loves playing the bagpipes, surfing and keeps a spare scotch egg in his sporran. Who writes this stuff?
We’re often asked, why do you use the word “eco” in your company name and branding?.
At Ecowagon we have simple but effective philisophies: minimise waste, be environmentally friendly, offer best value, keep the specs high and ultimately offer conversions that will reduce carbon emissions (through weight reducing construction and careful use of materials). We don’t claim to be the cheapest but we do expertly fit the most excellent equipment, design stunning conversions and never stop innovating. On balance we do offer a high scale of economy because your conversion is built with the best kit and loving care so it just keeps working.
Oh, and we also look after our customers, always! Let’s hope things always work but if they don’t, we will fix it under our three year warranty. It’s worth noting that our warranty extends to equipment installed by us and the workmanship we provide. The van itself is covered by the balance of your manufacturers warranty or any extended warranty you might purchase.
