Published: Mon 23 Jan 2023, 12:32 PM

The modifications carried out by the UAE based truck and van conversion specialist stand out, all thanks to their quality, something that vehicle manufacturers agree with. Al Furat Group’s many certifications confirm it – and now the company is delighted to have been awarded certified status by the Stellantis Group. With this certification Al Furat became the first vehicle converter in Asia to be Stellantis certified.

Reflecting about what you do and how you do it is a vital factor in any company's success. That's why Al Furat arranges for its processes and products to undergo regular and stringent external audits. Many well-known brands already know that the UAE based company is a name that can be trusted. Now the Stellantis Group has rewarded Al Furat’s outstanding efforts by awarding it the status of certified modification partner.

Certification without a hitch

The certification process itself is far from a walk in the park. The engineering and development, production, quality control and after sales departments were all scrutinised in the minutest of detail. Checks were also carried out to ensure that Al Furat Group complies with every letter of the Stellantis body construction guidelines. The result? A pass with flying colours.

K C Varughese, group chairman at Al Furat Group, said: "I'm delighted that we succeeded in gaining certified modification partner status, since it proves that the Stellantis Group trusts us and our products. As a manufacturing company, our aim is always to provide our customers with the best possible service, and to increase our market share by offering innovative and high-quality products."

"And it's not only the UAE based specialists that benefit from Stellantis’ decision to make Al Furat a certified modification partner. It's also good news for customers, since when they purchase a Al Furat product they can be sure that they're buying a high-quality branded product. Ideally customised to every vehicle and installed to the highest possible standards. Certification means that the Stellantis’ warranty on the base vehicle remains fully in place," Varughese added.

The certificate was handed over at the Habtoor Grand Resort in JBR Dubai during an LCV event in Dubai. Pribu John, director for Al Furat Group, was delighted with the award.
