RGVA Ltd, a 3M Select Gold partner located in Maidstone, specializes in vehicle graphics and has focused exclusively on this since its inception in 2001.
The founder of RGVA, Ian Calderwood, had been involved in the vehicle graphics industry since the early nineties. However, he couldn’t fully realize his ambitions and ideas within his previous role, leading him to venture out on his own in 1996. After five years of running a small business from a garage, Response Group Vehicle Art (RGVA), operating as See It 24:7, was established in 2001.
In 2004, Ian founded another company called Traxx Ltd. This venture was inspired by a request from one of their major supermarket clients to create a system for easily changing vehicle branding without disrupting their fleet. The Traxx product, a patented high-tension advertising system, can quickly tension PVC banners to the sides of rigid trucks, reducing the changeover time from hours to minutes. It has achieved great success and has been installed on over 20,000 vehicles in 15 countries, including the United States, South Africa, Russia, and Germany.
In 2015, the RGVA management team, led by Kieran McCabe and Richard Cox, conducted a management buyout, becoming the new owners of the business. RGVA now boasts its strongest-ever team, securing contracts with fleets of all sizes across the UK while maintaining its commitment to providing excellent service to existing customers.
Our business collaboration spans 18 years, and we believed it was opportune to combine our strengths to provide PPF and vehicle wrapping services to our clients.
RGVA’s purpose-built, dust-extracted, well-lit wrapping bay enables them to deliver vehicle wraps with the lowest level of contaminants in the industry.
Their 3M gold certification underscores their expertise in the marketplace.
