Caerphilly County Borough Council would like to congratulate local business, Vantastec Ltd on their recent success!

Vantastec Ltd, located in Ystrad Mynach, walked away with the prize after being declared winners by a panel of industry experts at The WhatVan? Awards; the flagship awards show in the Light Commercial Vehicles sector, showcasing the very best businesses and manufacturers within the industry.

On winning the award, company Managing Directors Gareth Edwards and Colin Smith said, "It is truly an honour to be receiving such a prestigious trophy. The WhatVan? Awards are so crucial for our industry. We started the business from our home offices with next to nothing so to see how far we have come makes us incredibly proud.

“For 13 years, we have worked to create the best product available on the market. Whether that be coffee vans, refrigerated vehicles, animal transport, bespoke conversions or anything in-between. It is a credit to our amazing team of engineers and office staff. Without them, we wouldn't be where we are today.”

Vantastec Ltd is a specialist light commercial vehicle converter whose work includes temperature-controlled conversions, catering and coffee can conversions, animal transportation vehicles, bespoke tailored vehicles and much more.

The company was founded in 2006 and was based in Penallta before moving into a larger, 28,000 square foot facility in Ystrad Mynach in 2013.

Cllr Sean Morgan, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transportation and Sustainability commented “It’s extremely pleasing to see a local business thriving and receiving the recognition they so clearly deserve. Congratulations and I wish you all the best for your future successes.”
