Jennings Ford Transit Centre gets set for region’s annual Van Exhibition

Jennings Ford’s Middlesbrough-based Transit Centre will be displaying something a little different when they take part in The North East Van Exhibition at Darlington Mowden Park RFC next weekend.

Members of the public who visit the event taking place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July at the Northern Echo Arena on Neasham Road, will be able to see a Ford Transit model, which has been given a unique make-over, in addition to another Transit model that has been transformed into a bespoke motorhome.

Alan Bailes, commercial general manager, said; “We are delighted to be taking part in the forthcoming event, which has attracted more than 40 exhibitors.  It is the ideal platform for us not only to promote Ford’s award-winning products and services to local businesses, but also to the general public with a trade event taking place on Friday and a family fun day on Saturday.”

To mark the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Transit, taking place in August, staff at the Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough, arranged for a 2.2 TDCi 125PS Ford Transit Custom model to be wrapped in gold vinyl.

Since arriving in the showroom, the model has been generating a lot of response and interest from customers and it is expected to generate the same response at the forthcoming event in Darlington.

Meanwhile, the Devon Mayflower, which is part of a joint venture with County Durham-based Devon Conversions, is the result of a Ford Transit model being transformed into a mobile motorhome.

The model offers two single beds that can convert into a King size double, a shower, toilet and kitchen complete with fridge, oven and grille. 

Jennings Ford’s Transit Centre in Middlesbrough sells the entire award-winning commercial vehicle range, with everything from the Fiesta Van, Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect and Transit Van to the Transit Custom, Tourneo Custom, Transit mini-bus, Transit Tipper, Transit chassis cab and the Ford Ranger on display and available to test drive.
