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 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.

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.

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.
APPRENTICE MECHANICAL ENGINEER
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.
