TBC Conversions // November 2022



Leading vehicle conversion specialist, TBC Conversions (TBC) has been named as the highly commended Manufacturer of the Year at a prestigious Northern Irish business awards ceremony hosted by Business Eye in association with AIB.

The Business Eye Award for Manufacturer of the Year celebrates excellence across innovation, attention to detail, state of the art engineering, and market success.

Founded on the principles of intelligence, care, and empathy, TBC specialises in mobility, taxi and bus, and bespoke conversions that fill a gap in the market for quality products and an attentive service.

David Donnell, Managing Director at TBC, commented:

“The entire team at TBC is absolutely thrilled to have been highly commended in the competitive Manufacturer of the Year Award category, showcasing our commitment to meeting the unique needs and wants of each customer while delivering excellent customer service.

“There is no doubt that there was some fierce competition this year, given the wealth of manufacturing excellence in Northern Ireland, and to be recognised as a leader in our industry is a significant achievement.

“We pride ourselves on our ability to integrate practical solutions into our conversions whilst going above and beyond to deliver results and have a significant impact on the lives of our customers.”

Due to its ongoing innovation, TBC is the only Volkswagen recognised convertor in Northern Ireland and was the first in the UK to secure European Whole Type approval of the VW Caddy and Crafter models.

This has resulted in a strong performance from the company and a promising future forecast, despite a turbulent market and challenging environment. 

David continued:

“This award is testament to the work of our over 70 members of staff, who are passionate about getting their customers on the road with minimal fuss whilst ensuring they are comfortable, safe, and well taken care of throughout and after the buying process.

“In recent years, TBC has gone from strength to strength, and we are looking forward to exploring more opportunities for growth in the future.”

Part of Donnelly Group, Northern Ireland’s largest independently owned motor retailer, TBC operates across the UK and Ireland in partnership with ten world-renowned vehicle manufacturers including Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Citroen, Vauxhall, and Fiat.
