EXE1200 as fitted by Renault!

The opportunity to supply steps directly to Renault in France was always going to be exciting for the leading UK manufacturer of steps for minibuses and taxis and ambulances. Keith Clarke, MD at AVS commented, “The French market is a tough nut to crack. There are excellent French manufacturers and so when Renault considered AVS we grabbed the opportunity with both hands”.

It was the EX series of steps that attracted Renault. Looking modern and stylish the EX fit easily to the Renault Master 2010 model. Renault chose the EXE1200 step with its massive 1200mm wide step platform.  Clarke added, “The wider EX steps have not yet been taken up by the UK market but Renault understood the requirement of a wide step to offer safe exit and ingress whatever the width of the door. However, having said that bodybuilders such as Wilker UK have seen the advantage and have fitted the EXE1000 for UK based ambulance services”.

Renault has strict quality control systems and this is something AVS have experience with. Clarke said, “Dealing with Daimler and Mercedes had taught us that there is only one way to supply these significant OEM’s and that right first time and every time!”

The EX step series has a two year UK road side warranty and is available from AVS in 300m deep tread by a range of widths, 550,600,750,900,1000 and 1200mm. 

Viva la difference!
