“We pride ourselves on delivering the best quality service possible to our customers and this starts with the products we use when developing our customised vehicles. We only use the proven and tested leading brands and Arbil can supply these”

Arbil’s strong distribution network and knowledge within its organisation has led to it being granted exclusive UK distribution of leading brands ARB® and WARN®. Jankel use Arbil to source its winch, compressor, bull bar, roof rack, rear bumper, side step, recovery equipment and fuel tank needs. Foster details the service,

“Our suppliers are based all over the world; managing ordering and shipments from all of these parties is an incredibly time consuming job and also involves several contacts, time zones and currencies. Because we have to meet tight production deadlines we need the correct parts on time and where we expect them – and with all the best intensions, sometimes suppliers still need chasing to ensure this happens. Arbil manage this ordering process for us so we can be left to get on with what we do best: vehicle conversions and delivering the highest customer satisfaction and not be tied up with the logistics’ Foster adds,

‘One recent example of the service Arbil provided us was an ARB® order. 68 parts were coming from the Middle East to our varying sites within the UK. We needed the correct parts, delivered to the correct sites and all within 10 days. Arbil managed the full process on our behalf and everything went without a hiccup”

Foster now only has one company to deal with and can lean on the individuals within Arbil for their expert advice. Foster explains,

“Now that Arbil fully manage the logistical side of things I can focus on getting in the best possible products for the job. After a close working relation with Arbil for nearly 10 years, I know who will be the best person to approach within the team for any particular query. Their product knowledge is second to none, and not only will they provide solutions for us, but they also actively introduce new product, meaning we can always offer our customers the most innovative products’ Foster finishes,

‘I would definitely recommend Arbil’s service. My stress levels have been reduced and the service provided is great value for the minimal charge applied to it”
