BOSS ORV the distributor of Corvus, Europe’s first manufacturer of 4×4 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 Managing Director, 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 good quality Diesel SxS UTV. After extensive research, they chose Corvus to fill the gap due to the off-road performance, a particularly important factor in the challenging terrain of the Scottish Borders. BOSS ORV is distributing and supporting three Corvus models, the TerrainDX4 EPS, TerrainDX4 PRO EPS and TerrainDX4 CAB EPS. They feature a Euro 6 compliant 3-cylinder 993cc Yanmar Diesel engine which gives excellent fuel efficiency and range. The Terrain is homologated to T1b tractor regulation and has a top speed of 40mph/65kp/h.
After parting company with John Deere in an earlier re-structure, Johnston Tractors of Carlisle and Appleby were also looking for a quality UTV to add to their product line up. Howard Johnston told the Corvus 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 Corvus quality and performance.”
The third dealership visited by the Corvus management was Tom Taylor ATV in York. Managing Director, Tom Taylor, says “ “After seeing the Corvus 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 using high–quality components and in particular the latest Yanmar Diesel engine. After this intensive evaluation, we had absolutely no qualms about adding the Corvus products to our product 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.”
