Your Type Approval Partner in Vehicle Seating

“We are with you every step of the way through the Vehicle Type Approval Process”

Type approval can be a daunting process, but it does not have to be that way when it comes to choosing a seating supplier. The Type Approval process as long as its followed logically can be an easy and relatively painless exercise that does not need to cost the Earth.

When fitting our range of fully approved seats, we are with you every step of the way, we don’t sell boxes, we sell solutions, so we guide our customers through every aspect of type approval.

We don’t believe it should be the Customer who should have to pay and test the seats in the vehicle they are approving, that’s our job as the seating supplier. That’s why we heavily invest in keeping all our products tested in the latest vehicles to the latest legislation. We test in the leading popular range of European OEM M1/N1 range of vehicles

Unlike other seating suppliers who expect you to buy a vehicle shell, pay for the testing and deal with all the paperwork yourself. We supply fully homologated solutions that already have all the testing and approvals done by us in the vehicle shell, so your Type Approval process using Jany seats is purely a paperwork exercise.

This is especially important to our customers, if we take the current Ford Transit V347/V348 and a customer Typed Approved the current vehicle, when the new Transit V363 comes out in spring 2014, they would have to go through the whole testing process again. When our customers fit Jany, we are responsible for the testing of the new Transit, so all our customers have to do is submit our new testing documentation to the VCA.

We do not stop there, we involve ourselves in the early stages of the process, advising if the best route to approval is full blown Type Approval or cheaper National Small Series, we also provide vehicle drawings exactly matching your build and this forms the basis of your seating approval with the VCA.

When choosing a seating supplier for Type Approval, the company must also be in a strong financial position, if your seating supplier dissapears, you have to go through the whole Type Approval process again with another seat. We are part of the Be-Ge Group, established in 1934 we are strong financially, with full backing from the Be-Ge Group, you can fit our products with the safe knowledge that we will not let you down.


We can also train your employees on how to fit our systems and issue training certificates to ease you through the Conformity of Production aspect of Type Approval.

We offer the complete package and have the experience of Type Approving many vehicles in the UK. We have nothing to hide and we are currently the only company to offer all our testing documentation “open” on our website for all to see.


We are proud of what we do and its reflected in the products we produce, our investment in vehicle seating safety testing puts us at the forefront of seating supply solutions.
