Yorkshire Coast Homes: 2016 Project

Over the past few months Qi have begun a project with returning customer, Yorkshire Coast Homes.

About Yorkshire Coast Homes
YCH is a registered social landlord providing almost 4,500 properties across the North Yorkshire coast.

Project Details
Qi's first involvement with the fleet team began back in early 2013 fleeting a number of vehicles. We were delighted to be invited to continue the relationship during Q4 2015 for the next phase of conversions.


After visiting the YCH team at their base in Scarborough (November 2015) we had a full understanding of what was required due to the level of detail provided by the YCH Fleet management team. With the work carried out back in 2013 the YCH team were confident that the racking solutions supplied supported the requirements for individual operatives after proven in-use.

Qi's designated Key Account Manager and Design team quickly drew up specifications and technical drawings relating to the specific trades including joiners, electricians, & multi-trade to name a few. Within these specifications Qi introduced new products for the YCH operatives such as self-charging power pack units with an easy access racking solution provided.

We were in the position of specification sign off in the early part of 2016 and vehicles were placed on order with the manufacturer to allow Qi to plan build slots coinciding with vehicle arrival dates, ensuring the conversion project plan provided a swift turnaround for customer delivery.
May 2016 resulted in vehicle arrivals and also a physical conversion prototype sign off by the customer in Telford, and as a result a full delivery plan is well underway throughout June.
Qi handled the full vehicle completion at our site in Telford, producing and applying livery decals, co-ordinating tracker installations, PDI's & the full delivery and handover to the YCH team.

YCH continue to grow and Qi are extremely proud to be involved with the YCH fleet management team, the vehicle conversion project was handled very efficiently and the team back at Qi are already looking at further innovations we could implement for the next phase of vehicle conversion solutions .

"Dealing with Qi has been a positive experience; they have kept us updated on all developments with excellent communication links. Our new fleet is looking great and the interior racking system makes efficient use of the vehicle space. We would have no hesitation in recommending Qi Van Systems to other parties, as following our tour round their Telford facility we left confident that all components were manufactured and installed to the highest standard."

- Bob Spedding, (Social Enterprise Manager, Yorkshire Coast Homes)

The team at YCH are going to be involved in a Golf day on 20th June 2016 at North Cliff Golf Course in Scarborough to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. They will play 72 holes of golf - totalling 4 rounds - in one day, with them expected to walk circa 20 miles over 20 hours!

We wish them the best of luck (and a bit of sunshine!) and would encourage anyone to give generously on the below link for this great cause:
