O&H celebrate 30 years of business

June 2018

For 30 years, O&H Vehicle Conversions has grown to become a leader in the design and build of high quality A&E Ambulances, Patient Transport Service vehicles, Welfare vans and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles.

The company’s talented team provide design, engineering, electrical, fabrication and coachbuilding skills that work together to transform everyday vehicles into transport solutions that enhance, enable and save lives.

O&H was started at Goole docks back in 1988 as O&H Facilities.  With seven staff, the business began by bringing Renault vans off the ships and completing the pre-ambulance electrical work, rear suspension and the fitting of ramps before the vehicles were dispatched to second converters for the coachworks.

The company soon went from pre-ambulance work to full design and construction of vehicles. The business continued to quickly expand and in 1997 the company relocated to larger premises on Larsen Road, Goole where the production facility remains today.  The same year the company also received its biggest order to date, eighty vehicles were commissioned by Northumbria Ambulance Service.

O&H Vehicle Technology 30 Years

 

By 2003, the company experienced further growth and the site on Larsen Road increased in size when two production lines were built onto the back of the original building. This took the manufacturing facility up to 60,000 sq. ft. offering the capacity to produce high volumes of vehicles.

O&H moved into the Mobility market in 2006 after completing the acquisition of Brighouse based Universal Mobility. The Mobility business moved its operations to Larsen Road soon after and production began of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles which was shortly followed by further expansion into the Welfare vehicle market.

Today, O&H employs over 180 staff and continues to provide a wide range of vehicle conversions for customers in many market sectors.

At O&H Vehicle Conversions excellence is expected and if there’s a way to do it better, O&H will find it and make it happen.
