A company has just ordered 55 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter units. Following a customization procedure, all of them will become ice cream vans.
British premium bodybuilder Whitby Morrison will customize every single of the 55 vans. With a tradition in body customizing since 1962, the company will brighten the models and the days of customers once again.
Due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, ice cream sellers decided to relocate their business outdoors. And a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van would allow them to be mobile, moving from area to area, depending on the customers’ requests. They have reached the decision following the failure of the events’ organizers to set up concerts, festivals, exhibitions or similar events.
Therefore, specialist bodybuilder Whitby Morrison receives more and more orders of vans conversions. Their latest is to transform 55 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis into ice cream vans.
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter units become high-quality ice cream vans
“Our vehicles are synonymous with the highest quality and meet all of the individual requirements that our customers have. The chassis must also meet our high standards, which is why we always recommend the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter”, says Operations Director Ed Whitby. “It is unbeatable in reliability, fuel efficiency and safety. The ice cream van operators are very keen to display the star on their bonnet.”
The Whitby Morrison company, based in Crewe, United Kingdom, was founded in 1962. Along the years, it build an average of 85 vehicles every 365 days. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans have been some of their favorite worksheet for more than ten years. They usually go for the 3.5-tonne variant. Whitby Morrison exports the vehicles they convert to more than 60 countries. Their works reach as far as Australia and the Caribbean islands.
“The Mercedes employees aren’t just extraordinarily motivated, they also assist us at all times with new ideas and possibilities”, Ed Whitby says.
