SYDNEY, AUS – Hidrive, a manufacturer and installer of service bodies for utes, trailers and trucks has been officially accredited as a Quality Vehicle Modifier (QVM) partner of Ford Motor Company.

The QVM accreditation recognizes Hidrive’s commitment to the highest quality of craftsmanship and safety standards demanded of Ford’s QVM partners.

QVM accreditation is achieved through a rigorous qualification process and review of all aspects of a partner’s products and processes to ensure the highest quality standards.

Hidrive is a one-stop-shop installing over 120 accessories from bull bars to towbars and almost everything in between, cutting delivery times and reducing hassles for customers and dealers.

“We’ve been working collaboratively with the major ute and truck brands since the 1990’s, and Ford has consistently been among the most proactive working with service body manufacturers. It’s part of Ranger’s success with fleets.”
said Hidrive CEO Stan Eagle.

“Our Ford Australia Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) Certification is recognition of Hidrive’s world-class ute canopies and related fit-out processes”, said Eagle.

“This accreditation validates Hidrive’s commitment to quality, fit-for-purpose service bodies, delivered on time through our company-owned manufacturing and national installation network,” said Eagle.

Hidrive’s light and durable aluminium ute canopies maximise payload and have been continually improved since the 1990s.
