Partnership with Qvest Media

We have agreed an exclusive partnership for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with Qvest Media, a world-leading systems architect and ICT integrator. Our companies are pooling their respective skills to create production and broadcast vehicles.

The companies will focus on increased technical and structural standardisation and a modular vehicle concept. The declared aim is also to exploit new production possibilities. Technologically, a full IP-capable design of the vehicles will play a central role in order to be able to increasingly relocate production tasks to stationary production and broadcasting centres via remote connection. Networking with cloud services and resources will also simplify field production and relieve the local OB teams. The overall package enables clients to use the vehicles in a more versatile, flexible and, in particular, cost-effective manner.

In the past, Qvest Media and Carrosserie Akkermans have already jointly developed media vehicles for applications such as television, events, sports broadcasts or live reports. Building on this shared experience, cooperation will be extended to the MENA region.

Mobile Communication Units

For the 'Regional Safetycentre Utrecht' we were asked to build two Mobile Communication Units. We have equipped the cars (Mercedes Atego) with, among other things, their own power supply, modern climate system, AV and ICT systems, connection and navigation equipment. The cars are used as central command during major calamities and exercises.

Belgian police goes electric

The police in Belgium now uses 100% electric cars: BMW i3. It was our job (and pleasure) to convert them from regular cars to high end surveillance vehicles.
