A dedicated European sales office in Venlo, Netherlands was established in 2010 while a sales and distribution centre in Gothenburg, Sweden and an Eastern European division based in Kraków, Poland were both set up in 2016.
In 2017 the Rhino Products Group acquired AVS Steps, the leading provider of side steps for taxis, minibuses, ambulances and mobility vehicles serving UK and international markets which represents another exciting expansion for the Rhino Products group. AVS Steps also has an additional site in Germany serving European customers.
Rhino provide a lot of external storage solutions to the van market allowing users to safely carry tools and operate safely whilst carrying out their jobs. With a wide variety of solutions available, is there one for you? All of Rhino's products have been crash tested up to 20g to ensure they stay and hold items in place in the event of an incident.
Available in 2 different forms, Rhino produce an 'aluminium rack' and a 'modular rack'. The first being a lightweight, strong solution with reduced wind noise and drag, and the latter a classic design fit for purpose.
These take 2 different forms - Delta Bar and Kamm Bar. The Delta is one of Rhino's best selling roof bars, and the Kamm is the 'next generation' of commercial vehicle roof bar design with a lightweight aluminium construction. Once installed, the PipeTube also from Rhino can be attached to these to transport and store pipes and other items.
Safely store away ladders and retrieve them in a safe manner too. Available in 2.2m or 3.1m lengths these can be sued with the Rhino SafeClamp to secure them in place during transportation.
With 4 different types to choose from, there will be a safe solution for your van fleet. Choose from SafeStep, TowStep, TowStep Duo or the ImpactStep. The last been the best solution to allow a spring-back function rather than causing permanent damage.
All products have been crash tested to 20g to ensure the safe operation of them should the vehicle they are installed onto be involved in an incident.
Any combination of these products can help your fleet to operate in a safer way, but allow them to carry the materials and tools they require, and not use any space up in the load area of the vehicle.
Our qualified engineers have been trained by the professionals at Rhino themselves on how best to install these products to ensure they meet their very high and strict safety standards. SM UK can carry out these installations at their new Van Conversion facility located within 1/2 a mile of the M62 and M621 motorway network.
