Simon Ward


Simon is our general manager and repository of obscure Unimog facts & figures.

If you have any Unimog questions, the chances are that he’ll know the answer.

Frank Atkinson


Now retired Frank retains a keen interest in the engineering side of Atkinson Vos. His no-nonsense approach and wealth of real world experience is invaluable.

Chez Edmondson


Chez is our accountant and has been with us since 2012. Her career at AV started off as a book keeper and administrator with an active role in parts sales too.

After displaying a real aptitude for figures and being an absolute whizz on Excel, she took on the role of being our accountant and, in 2019, passed her AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) Level 4 qualification with flying colours!

Chez keeps the money coming in, ensures our suppliers are paid on time and, most importantly, makes sure we're paid on time.

She has a great understanding of the business which she gained from "front line" experience and is very useful when it comes to ensuring our accounts are in good order.

Paul Harris

Sales & Marketing

If you give us a call and press Option 2 for Sales then you'll most likely speak to Paul.

With a background in sales, Paul loves a good barter and a bit of banter and has a great rapport with our customers!

Paul joined us in 2016 and since then, has grown a great understanding and knowledge of the Unimog, which enables him to help our customers, new and old and from across the globe, get the right Mog for their needs.

A key part of Paul's role at AV is to keep our website and social media accounts up to date with new stock, workshop updates and anything Unimog so you guys know what we're up to here.

If your Mog has been up to anything exciting or you have some good snaps of it at work, send them over to Paul. He loves a good Mog story!

Rebecca Chaplow

Parts Advisor

If you press 1 for parts then it'll be Becca who answers your call. She joined our team as an administrator bringing solid experience and skills gained in previous jobs. Having a partner who loves old tractors & machinery proved to be the ideal apprenticeship for the parts advisor role at AV as she already knew a con-rod from a caliper. Becca is still learning about the weird & wonderful ways of Unimog but she's picked up a remarkable amount in a short time. She's a great addition to the team and has recently masterminded the biggest ever spare parts order in the history of Atkinson Vos. Give her a ring or a WhatsApp and she'll be pleased to help you.



Louise joined the AV team and has a background in dealing with stock, processing deliveries and customer service. Louise spends her day lovingly packing your Unimog spares to make sure they get there in one piece (couriers permitting!), keeping our yard and goods areas spick and span and whizzing around on the forklist unloading and loading lorries! She has made a great impact on our stores, making sure everything has its place so our mechanics can get what they need quickly to keep your mogs running! We also send her out and about in our pickup, delivering and collecting various orders from our suppliers and the very important Monday morning milk run! She has definitely cemented her place in our team with her wicked sense of humour and ability to the get the job done!

Mark Milner

Workshop Supervisor

Mark is our Workshop Supervisor and Technical Specialist.

He's been part of the Atkinson Vos Team since 2011 and has built up a wealth of experience over that time.

As well as being an expert mechanic, Mark is a talented fabricator & welder. If you have a design or something you want to fit to your truck, he will modify, move and adapt the truck to make it work for you.

He also has a great understanding of the UGN & UHN models and their fault diagnosis.

Another aspect of Mark's role at AV is using Solidworks CAD to design everything from small brackets to complete Camper boxes and subframes.

Mark's combination of practical experience, coupled with design skills is really invaluable and Mark has an important role in all of our more complex projects from initial concepts to completion.

Kris Kaniewski

Mechanic & Bodywork Specialist

Krzy is a very experienced mechanic on all kinds of heavy vehicles and started working with us in 2015. His knowledge of trucks makes him our first choice for all kinds of repairs, including crown wheel & pinion upgrades and gearbox repairs and makes him a key part of our team. As a talented metal worker, Krzy carries out a lot of our welding work, including all cab repairs & restorations on older cabs as well as bespoke modifications such as cab extensions, double cab conversions and fitting a higher cab roof. Krzy is renowned for his "special" hammer and love of an angle grinder - we always know where he is. We just follow the noise!

Andy Milner


Andy has been part of the workshop team at Atkinson Vos since 2016. Since that time, his knowledge of Unimogs has grown and his ability to work on a wide range of Unimogs from the old 404 to current U430/530 models, means he can work on anything that graces our workshop! Andy has shown a real flair for repairing gearboxes and is our go-to man when a Unimog comes in with a gearbox fault or customers send us their gearboxes for repair. Andy has completed a TIG welding course and is soon to undertake his HGV driver training. With a great attention to detail and always with the customer at the forefront of his mind, Andy is a great asset to our workshop team.



Henry joined us as an Apprentice Mechanical Engineer in 2021. He grew up locally and was keen (or at least his Mum was keen!) not to move out of the area. We try to encourage young talented people in our area and provide a fulfilling career with real prospects. Henry attends Kendal College one day a week where he learns engineering principles and design. His four days at AV might be spent in the workshop honing his MIG and TIG welding skills, working on customers trucks or working on Solidworks designing anything from a simple bracket to a complete Unimog subframe. He's a friendly and willing young man and is a great asset to our team.

Edward Dale

Design Engineering Manager

Ed joined AV in 2021 after completing a successful project with us in the final year of his Meng at Lancaster University. Having proved himself in his first year with us he now overseas our design & engineering department. He's skilled with Solidworks CAD and FEA (Finite element analysis) but also brings a keen eye for mechanical design to bear on all the projects on which he works. It's a great combination which fits in well here at AV. Solving problems with the simplest & elegant solutions is something which Ed particularly enjoys. One of the best things about working at AV is that Ed can turn his ideas into reality and he derives a great deal of satisfaction from this. He's also flexing his Project Management muscles by introducing new project management software to help keep design & engineering projects to timescale and on budget.

Gerard Bredenoord

"Brilliant company to deal with and a really helpful group of people who know what they are talking about."

Ben Mauger

Lars-Erik Bammis Ohlsson

When I bought my U1000 “Rustbucket” , Simon gave me a fair & frank appraisal of its condition. The mog was cleaned and shipped professionally with no issues upon landing here in Australia. Since then, AV has provided me with excellent spares support and the occasional bit of advice. Posting was always prompt and economical via Royal Mail – this has taken a lot of the pain out of restoration. Highly recommended.


Atkinson Vos not only supplied my Unimog some years ago but they have been ever present when I needed any advice or assistance. My Unimog recently underwent a full refurbishment in their workshop and I have to say the result has been nothing short of superb. My Moggy is not only in great mechanical shape but it looks great too. Top marks Atkinson Vos.

James Mc Donnell, Ireland

Whenever I drive my MOG on to their yard, I have a feeling of excitement about the opportunities for upgrade and improvement that Atkinson Vos offers. Anything is possible, and everything is done to a very high standard!. Atkinson Vos prepared my Unimog to an excellent standard. Their aftersales service is great too.


Hi Simon, The shims arrived last week. My unimog is now running perfectly! Thank you a lot for the excellent service, I really appreciate it!

Casper Hanekamp

We have been using Atkinson Vos for a number of years now, they have carried out some upgrades and all servicing and repairs, their staff are friendly and always willing to help. The workshop guys always offer advice and easy fix solutions over the phone and on the odd occasion visited our workshop to view and inspect the vehicle. I would not hesitate to recommend the company, Thanks to all the staff.

Chris Brayne

I have waited many years to start my expedition RV project and the team at Atkinson Vos has helped to bring this to fruition. Appreciated the quick responses to the myriad of questions I had additionally the support from build to delivery state side. Many thanks to the entire team at AV.

Mike Greenberg

"We have always prided ourselves with finding the best qualified people available, be they doctors, lawyers, engineers, or whomever. We applied the same process to finding our dream Mog Expedition Camper and have not been disappointed with Atkinson Vos. Paul and Emma both have done superb jobs answering our many questions and leading us through the purchasing / export / import process. Based on their performance to date, we are confident Atkinson Vos support will be there in the future where ever our travels may take us.”

Mary & J R Argo

"Atkinson Vos are the absolute experts on UNIMOGS in my opinion. They offer wonderful advice apart from sourcing spares and thereby make things so much easier" "I would go to them rather than any German supplier for my UNIMOGS. All put together, it's the best package deal." "Simon and Frank are passionate in what they do and men of their word. That's what I think sets them apart. They have literally turned me into a Unimog addict."

Solomon Benjamin

"We first met with with Atkinson Vos at the Adventure Overland Show in Stratford-upon-Avon. Frank and Paul had really impressed us as hosts and as a result we were determined to travel to the headquarters in Bentham. After a smooth discussion with Simon and Frank, we were certain that we found the partner to upgrade our Unimog. Two weeks later work had already started! We have too many kind words for Simon, Emma, Paul, Mark and the rest of the team to fit in this testimonial! Their knowledge and expertise in Unimogs made us feel assured. We were helped and cared for throughout the whole process, They are a phenomenal team, and we enjoyed the time we spend with them, Thanks guys! Souren and Kati"

Souren and Kati

"The inspection of my Unimog was executed thoroughly and the itemized repair quote was reasonable. In short my Unimog is a testament to the fantastic work delivered by Atkinson Vos. This is a compliment coming from someone who appreciates quality work and has an eye for detail."

Joe Dos Santos

After taking on bigger tree work as my business grew, I knew I needed a Unimog. After doing my research on different commercial vehicles sold in the UK i found Atkinson Vos and I felt I was in good hands. The quality of service, care and reliability from Simon and his team has been a really good experience. The team have built my Unimog to the exact spec of what I needed. I'm over the moon with it. I'm getting lots of feedback from customers and passers by that are impressed by the green machine. I would highly recommend Atkinson Vos to anyone that specialises in Arboriculture.

Jon Welfare

All Seasons Tree Care

“Thank you for sorting out the Unimog parts. Well chuffed at the minimal corrosion and the quality of the bits. Thank the boys from the workshop for me. They were brilliant helping us load up. “

Tim Richardson

County Construction & Development

"Mark has done a fantastic job and in poor weather conditions too, he resolved an unexpected pump failure and replaced it in time for us to use the Unimog almost immediately after he finished. Our unimog has been on some high profile jobs since Mark left and has impressed all who have seen it in action"


Forth Logistics

"As a company owner Great British sports cars in the automotive sector, I know how important it is to have a team that offers great customer service but also has the depth of technical knowledge of their products, this has been especially helpful with a personal project of mine restoring an 1969 Unimog 416 were finding people that really know there stuff has been invaluable."

Richard Hall

Great British Sports Cars

We own an expedition camper, built on a 1990 Mercedes Benz 4WD truck. While the mileage was low, we were worried about parts that might have suffered from age. Atkinson Vos gave the truck a comprehensive survey and then performed a week’s worth of repairs and upgrades. The result is like having a new truck. Wonderful to work with people who really understand this type of vehicle. Our highest recommendation.


Emma and Paul, Just a quick message to let you know the Mog was delivered on time and very professionally this morning. Thank you for arranging the transport quickly after our haulier let us down a couple of times. I hope to use Atkinson Vos again in the future as the Mog has exceeded all expectations, the paint finish, and the overall cleanliness of the machine is second to none. Many thanks again to both of you for a smooth sale and for keeping us updated throughout the process.
