• First order for 10 SVI-armoured Ford Rangers received
• Large demand for factory-backed armoured bakkies in South Africa
• SVI and Ford Motor Company leading the way
• Warranty and service plan intact
• Ford Credit available
Less than two weeks after the official SVI-armoured Ford Ranger launch event an order for 10 armoured Rangers was received. According to Nicol Louw, business development manager at SVI, the company has been inundated with enquiries since the launch event. This points to the urgent need in South Africa for factory-backed armoured bakkies which is now available for the first time. Another enabler is that the armoured Ranger can be purchased through Ford Credit which makes it attractive for both individual and fleet buyers.
SVI was formed in 2004 as an innovative mechanical engineering and rapid-product development firm with capabilities in product design, finite element analysis, development, product evaluation and manufacturing of armoured products. SVI is BEE level 2 and its quality management system is certified to ISO 9001:2015 by TÜV Rheinland.
