Ecowagon, almost the A-Team!
Ecowagon create incredible T5 and T6 campervan conversions in Cornwall. We also sell fully converted, ready to drive away new and pre-owned VW Transporters. Our team is formed from a bunch of highly talented chaps who are genuinely chilled out and easy to deal with. That’s not to say we’re not professional, we have bucket loads of experience with a capital E! We know you will be trusting us to convert your beloved camper van and we take this very seriously.
Choose Ecowagon, convert your lifestyle and live the dream! Get ready for a new adventure.
Misty is our Chief Barking Officer. In reality she is in charge of all the chaps and ensures productivity and quality control are at maximum output. She will meet and greet customers, as well as bark and scare courier drivers and the postman. She also likes to keep us all reminded that we need a good stock of biscuits (you might like to bring some with you).
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.
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.
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 (John’s domain). 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.
