Snoeks successfully completed FMVSS 226 testing for our window solution for the RAM Promaster Crew Van. Since September 2018, all windows on the Promaster Crew Van need to be in compliance with FMVSS 226. An OE FMVSS 226 compliant solution has been available on the Promaster since 2018, but with our addition, our upfitters are now able to install windows in cargo vans, using dealer inventory. This further improves our flexibility to supply the market with Promaster Crew Vans. The compliant windows are available as of today for order.
Snoeks is committed to supplying the safest Crew Vans in the market, and supplies FMVSS compliant kits. The Snoeks bench seat with integrated safety partition is designed to be installed in the Ford Transit Cargo Van as aftermarket equipment. Roush Engineering has reviewed the information and test reports supplied by Snoeks and concurs with Snoeks Automotive Statement that compliance with applicable F/CMVSS requirements and Ford’s Body and Equipment Mounting Manual (BEMM) has been demonstrated or has identified compliance to some requirements as upfitter responsibility.
Snoeks worked together with RAM to supply 50 Promaster Crew Vans to dealerships across the nation, in an effort to raise product awareness. The first few RAM Promaster Crew Vans have arrived at the dealerships, and have already been sold to customers.
Johan Veenstra, Business development Manager at Snoeks Automotive North America, commented, “Since the introduction of the Crew Van concept to the North American market last year, there has been a lot of interest from the industry. We are very excited to see that the first RAM Promaster Crew Vans are being sold and will be riding on the American roads soon. We thank RAM for their trust and are looking forward to expand this partnership.”
For the first time, Snoeks was an exhibitor at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis displaying our LCV solutions. The event was an excellent opportunity for us to introduce our innovative Crew Van concept and to raise product awareness. We had a RAM Promaster Crew Van and Ford Transit Crew Van on display, both attracting a lot of attention from OEM’s, Upfitters, Fleet managers and Dealerships. We enjoyed attending the show and connecting with our OEM and upfit partners.
The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is now also available with the all-new Crew Van kit by Snoeks. With an updated design, the kit is designed to be lightweight, yet also durable to take on any job. The Sprinter Crew Van kit is FMVSS compliant and comes standard with an integrated safety partition, 3 seater bench with OE upholstery. Our design is optimized to offer maximum loading space in the cargo area.
