Recognised Quality

Certifications and memberships

The quality of B-style's mobility solutions is recognised by both market parties and independent bodies. Since the company's founding in 1973, B-style has been hard at work to guarantee and improve quality, resulting in numerous certifications, innovations and memberships along the way. B-style is a supplier of conversion kits for wheelchair vans, buses and city buses.

Mercedes-Benz VanPartner

B-style is an official Mercedes-Benz VanPartner. This means that Mercedes-Benz recognises the quality of the mobility solutions and considers B-style an official conversion partner. The B-Moved even has a LONO (letter of non-objection), which means that the manufacturer's warranty remains valid after modification of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. See the B-style profile on the Mercedes-Benz VanPartner website. For Mercedes-Benz, B-style has developed conversion kits to make the Vito and V-Class into wheelchair accessible vehicles, as well as wheelchair bus, city bus and low entry packages for the Sprinter.

Volkswagen Premium Partner

B-style is a Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles PremiumPartner. Volkswagen recognises the quality of the conversion kits, and B-style is therefore considered an official conversion partner. The B-Active kit for the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi even has a LONO (letter of non-objection), which means that the manufacturer's warranty remains valid after the conversion. You will find a profile of B-style in the Volkswagen Bodybuilder Database. For Volkswagen, B-style has developed wheelchair van conversion kits for the Caddy and Caddy Maxi and a wheelchair bus kit for the Crafter. B-style also offers a taxi package for use in the Netherlands, with which the Transporter meets all the legal requirements for use as a taxi bus.

Quality Certificate Level 3 – Groupe PSA

A quality inspector from PSA assessed B-style and its products and found the quality to be exceptionally high. The overall score was 98%, which PSA says is the highest score attained by any tested supplier. For Groupe PSA, B-style has developed wheelchair van conversion kits for the Citroën Berlingo, Opel Combo and Peugeot Rifter and has received a LONO (letter of non-objection), which means that the manufacturer's warranty remains valid after the conversion. For the Citroën Jumper, Opel Movano and Peugeot Boxer B-Style have developed a B-FiT floor system to make a wheelchair bus. 

RDW – Netherlands Vehicle Authority

B-style has a European Type Approval (ECWVTA) for the conversion kits for the B-Active and M-Moved. This certification demonstrates that the conversion conforms to the EU regulations. To obtain this certification, tensile and load tests, among others, are carried out on vital parts to determine whether the vehicle is safe. The results are then verified by the RDW, an independent public authority in the Netherlands. Our conversion packages passed with flying colours. The RDW has recognised B-style as a car manufacturer since 2000.

TÜV Nederland – ISO 9001

TÜV Nederland QA BV has certified that B-style meets the requirements of ISO 9001 every year since 2003. This demonstrates that B-style has a documented and implemented quality management system. The certification is subject to audits by TÜV Nederland.
