The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini is a true British icon of the 1960s. Made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its various successors from 1959 until 2000, its groundbreaking design led the way for a whole generation of carmakers. More than 3,000,000 MINIs have been produced since BMW relaunched the brand in May 2001. Last year, MINI produced more than 175,000 vehicles at Plant Oxford, which currently builds the three- and five-door Hatch, Convertible, Roadster and Coupe. MINI also has plants in Austria, the Netherlands and Asia. MINI has created some of the most recognisable cars in the world and is a best seller in the UK market. Originally starting life in Oxford, now a new MINI rolls off the production line every 68 seconds. With such a reputation for prestigious and recognition, MINI turned to Valcan to supply their premium Vitrabond through one of their distributers, FGF in Birmingham, in their corporate colours to reflect the quality of the brand.
Valcan’s Vitrabond facade cladding is second to none when a prestige finish is required, especially when brand colours are involved. With Valcan’s every growing product ranges, extensive colour range and colour matching service and a number of effects, theres almost nothing that can’t be achieved. Vitrabond is covered by BBA and you can be guaranteed years of outstanding performance from your install as well as a significant cost saving on your projects.
MINI sets trends in the industry and has always had a perfect feel for the times. The brand’s unconventional approaches traditionally attracted people with a high level of individuality and creativity. Because of that, they never stand still – and always evolve with their customers, like Vitrabond.
