The Road to Success

It’s been over 6 years since MVIS was founded at our Matlock site and as 2018 comes to an end, and everyone starts to get into the festive spirit, we thought it would be a good time to reflect on the development of MVIS and how, as a team, we’ve got to where we are today.

MVIS was formed back in 2012, in response to increasing demand for mobile variable message signs (VMS) and intelligent transport system (ITS) solutions, and since then we’ve created a reputable company based on efficiency, excellent service and trust with our customers.

But how have we got to where we are today?

  1. Investment in staff

When talking about the success of MVIS, we simply can’t deny the contribution of our outstanding and dedicated team. Commitment to and investment in staff at every level is essential to us here at MVIS. To help our staff develop the skills and knowledge needed to continue as industry leaders, we’re committed to providing ongoing training and development opportunities.

  1. Developing talent

One way we ensure we employ the staff with the right skills is through our highly successful apprenticeship scheme. Almost everyone who has joined us as an apprentice has stayed with us for the long term and our very own Dom Bridge was recently promoted to Assistant Operations Manager after starting as an apprentice 5 years ago. We’re proud to say that he is now completing his Degree Level Operations Management Course with us. Our apprentices work hard, are eager to progress and their retention rate has been excellent.  In November one of our apprentices, Tillie Wooliscroft was awarded the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year at the Learning Unlimited apprenticeship awards for going above and beyond and developing her knowledge and skills to a high standard.

  1. R&D and Innovation

By prioritising research and development, and gaining a strong customer insight into the challenges they face, we have been able to design products and solutions that our customers need, including the Solar IP – developed in response to the highway managers’ need to provide a flexible response to temporary traffic management situations. It houses a range of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) equipment in one unit that can be deployed anywhere on the road network.

  1. Customer Service

The high standard of the products and solutions we provide combined with the diligence and responsiveness of our staff means our customers benefit from a first class service.

The high standards of our work have been independently verified by the achievement of  our ISO accreditations for quality and environmental management. We are currently working towards the 45001 Health and Safety accreditation.
