Pillar Wedge is celebrating a long-standing partnership with a vintage car maker, which turns London taxis into vintage wedding vehicles.
The firm has provided its hot-dip galvanizing treatment to car frames on behalf of Tarleton-based Imperial Motor Company, a vintage-style vehicle manufacturer for 9 years, and the relationship has blossomed into the perfect marriage.
Since 2004, Pillar Wedge has worked alongside the Imperial Motor Company to treat hundreds of steel sub-frames, which make up the structure of the vehicles. Each car is made from scratch, and sees the galvanized frame attached to the chassis of a London taxi to form the car’s body, whilst also making use of the vehicles’ running gear. They are then constructed to resemble vintage 1930s cars and are upholstered internally to provide the transportation fitting for even the most high-end wedding.
Mark Waters, Commercial Manager at Pillar Wedge, commented: “We are delighted to have built such a great working relationship with the Imperial Motor Company over the years. The vehicles look fantastic, and its great recycled London taxis are being put to such a good use.”
John Barlow, Managing Director of Imperial Motor Company, said: “We have worked with Pillar Wedge for many years as the team always provide a fast and efficient service. It is essential that we galvanize the steel, as it is permanently exposed to the elements and it is not always possible to undertake repairs. Galvanizing ensures the car is aesthetically pleasing for years. We are currently developing a Bentley Chassis, which the team will be helping us out with and we look forward to continuing the partnership for years to come.”
