Distributing Euro-built utility vehicles

Boss ORV the distributor of Corvus, Europe’s first manufacturer of 4x4 utility vehicles, has completed the first stage of dealer development in the UK.

The landmark prompted a tour of dealers by Juan Jose Bernal-Quiros, Corvus Innova S.L. managing director and the Spanish company’s export director, Gabriel Motos.

Accompanied by Phil Everett, BOSS ORV’s md, their visit began in Scotland at Kelso based Frank Gibson ATVs. Here they learned the dealer had had a gap in their product portfolio for a diesel SxS UTV. After extensive research, they chose Corvus to fill the gap believing the vehicles to be suitable for challenging terrain of the Scottish Borders.

After parting company with John Deere in an earlier re-structure, Johnston Tractors of Carlisle and Appleby were also looking for a UTV to add to their product line up. Howard Johnston told the visitors, “After thoroughly testing the Corvus product we decided it was the perfect vehicle to add to our range and we have not in any way been disappointed with the quality and performance.”

The third dealership visited by the management team was Tom Taylor ATV in York. Managing director, Tom Taylor, said, "After seeing the Terrain DX4 on the ATV Services Scotland stand at last year’s Royal Highland Show and a good chat with Phil Everett, we decided to request a demo unit to enable us to properly evaluate the product on local land and to look at in more depth in our workshop. The whole team agreed that it was a very well-built unit. After this intensive evaluation, we had absolutely no qualms about adding the products to our portfolio.”

Murray Boss of Ace ATV also arranged a customer visit for the Corvus directors where they learned the Terrain had been chosen due to an impressive demonstration and the fact it has the ability to take a full-sized pallet in the rear cargo box.

“Juan Jose and Gabriel were impressed with this first stage development of Corvus UK dealers,” says Phil Everett, “since we began in September 2019 we have achieved all our aims and we’re now actively looking to take on new dealers to expand the network, while maintaining the quality and level of our service and support of the Corvus brand in the UK.”
