TBC Conversions, Northern Ireland’s leading vehicle conversion company, has secured an £8 million contract to supply 350 adapted vehicles to Genus Breeding.

Genus Breeding is a world-leading animal genetics company. The vehicles, a mixture of Volkswagen Caddy Kombi and Caddy vans were specifically modified for the transportation of bull semen contained in liquid nitrogen tanks.

Established in 2006, TBC Conversions is based in a purpose-built factory in Dungannon and employs 55 people, converting vehicles for wheelchair drivers and passengers, as well as minibuses and taxis for the commercial and public sector, plus specialist conversions such as the Genus contract.

“This vehicle contract with Genus Breeding could have gone anywhere in the UK or Ireland but we are delighted to have secured this for the region,” said TBC MD David Donnell.

“It’s the latest contract in our continuing growth which is attributable to our great team and focus on customer care and innovation in vehicle adaptions.

Adrian Davies, Global Fleet and Cost Manager at Genus Breeding said: “We had a very challenging specification for our fleet and were impressed with how TBC Conversions handled the project.

“From the outset they were professional and delivered each element of the brief on time and on budget with the engineering excellence of the team evident in the finished vehicles.”
