Since winning our first manufacturing project in 2006 Penso has continue to evolve its ability to build products through to final assembly. Through our relationship with Mercedes Benz we were contracted in 2008 to build the Vito taxi having delivered the engineering programme. Over the following 12 years many full Vehicle build projects have been delivered on behalf of our customers ranging from 1 off show cars to engineering development vehicles and low volume production.
Over 7,000 Vito Taxis have been built by Penso and as well as one off show test vehicles. In 2020 Penso launched the production of its new Blue Ocean delivery van platform which has been designed, developed and manufactured at Penso.
