Project requirements

Barlows needed a flexible, knowledgeable converter that could support their plans for the growth and expansion of their fleet. These vehicles needed to be specifically kitted out to meet the needs of their fleet of technicians

Following in-depth discussions regarding Barlows’ requirements, it was mutually determined that Qi’s FAST-FIT storage solution would be ideal for their fleet.

Durable and lightweight, FAST-FIT is robust enough to withstand constant use without compromising on payload. Qi can turn around installations quickly, thus ensuring minimal downtime for users. FAST-FIT is also drill-free, and excellent value for money.

Qi handled the full vehicle conversion at our Telford site, producing and applying livery decals, co-ordinating tracker installations and PDI, whilst maintaining continuous contact with all stakeholders.

The FAST-FIT storage system is designed for our needs and is the ideal solution for our engineers on the road.

The team at Qi are professional, keep us informed of progress and their product is of the highest quality.”
