He went on to found CoTrim in Salisbury in 1994, manufacturing bespoke van conversions for businesses and private customers alike. His highest priority has always been to listen to our customers’ needs AND provide safe van conversions manufactured to the highest standards.

Kevin is also proud Dad to Gregg, Nathan, Layne, Tom and Marina.

Nathan Dible

Managing Director

Nathan has over 23-years experience in the automotive conversion industry, from working on our workshop floor through to management and directing the company. As an experienced technician with a passion for carpentry, he also has an understanding of every facet of the conversion process from the shop floor to accounts.

You’ll get the benefit of his honesty, knowledge and experience when talking through conversion options and exploring layouts. Nathan ensures that our customers get a conversion with products that are of the best quality, that meet the highest standards of safety and that make their vehicle dreams a reality.

Gregg Dible

Business Development Director

Gregg is a problem-solving whirlwind and has been working his magic with us since 1994. Originally trained as a vehicle interior trimmer and minibus converter, he was approved by Reimo to install their iconic Rock and Roll beds and pop-top roofs, plus knows all about wheelchair access lifts and ramps and every passenger seat system CoTrim offers today.

He has now taken a massive change in job role, leading from the front, getting out and seeing our clients 3 to 4 days a week, building incredible new relationships with big corporates as well as the dealer and lease network.

Layne Dible

Operations Director

Layne manages the purchasing of parts for all of our conversions. His research skills keep us ahead of the curve for bespoke jobs and every time a new vehicle model is released. He works closely with our workshop team to make sure they have all of the information and designs they need to work on each project with precision and quality checks every build as it’s completed.

We can rely on Layne to ensure every part needed is ready on time so the workshop continues to flow smoothly. He loves finding the perfect styling parts and creating the coolest leather stitching designs that make all the difference to the finished look.

Tom Dible

Finance Manager

Tom joined us in 2012 as a workshop Technician and has never looked back. Now he manages the day-to-day running of our company finances as well as overlapping into sales and marketing. It could be Tom answering the phone when you call and he’s always happy to help.

As a family business, Tom has grown up with CoTrim and loves to see the way we keep evolving. The most satisfying part of his job is helping clients make the right choice and receiving fantastic feedback from our happy customers.

Tim Sandle

Associate Technician

Tim handles our Individual Vehicle Approval testing and has great knowledge in this specialist area. He’s a super seat trimmer and also takes care of checking vans in and out, valeting and waste control.

He loves being part of our unique team where all of the Directors have workshop skills and every day is different. Tim dazzles us with his masterful fork lift truck skills and ability to vanish when it’s his turn to make the tea!

Dan Pape


Dan is one of our workshop team and a brilliant technician. He has been interested in customising vans and cars for as long as he can remember.

One of the best parts of his job is the pride and satisfaction of transforming each van from start to finish by hand.

As a keen mountain biker he has a lot in common with many of our customers who buy their vans to be able to ride further afield. Dan is also the tallest person in the business – which often comes in handy for fitting roof bars.

Nathan Pollard


Nathy P is a cricketing legend and how England Cricket Team missed him, we don’t know, but we sure are glad of his presence here at CoTrim. He brings another smile on the dial and is a natural when it comes to practical work, with a background in joinery, plus suspension, tyres and exhausts, he continues to learn and thrive in our excellent workshop team.

Oh, and he’s second tallest, after Dan.

Ian Askew-Miller

Electrical Technician

Ian designs and builds electrical systems for all of our vehicles.

With an incredible 45 years of experience; there’s nothing he hasn’t done or doesn’t know when it comes to vehicle electrics. A key member of our workshop team, we rely on Ian’s expertise when planning and designing any new conversion.

He loves the satisfaction of creating something from scratch and the more complicated the problem, the better. Ian is also known for drinking more tea than the average human.

Matt Hague

Electrical Technician and Fitter

Matt has over 10 years behind him in the building trade as a fully qualified electrician, but has a passion for motorhomes and having completed his own van conversion, he can’t hold back his desire to continue transforming vans, so here we have a very talented auto electrician with all the practical skills to turn vans into something special.

Nothing is too hard and Matt loves a challenge of coming up with solutions to meet every need.
