Brand and creative consultancy, Propaganda, has delivered a full rebrand for TVS Interfleet, a commercial vehicle bodybuilder group.

Appointed to drive sustainable growth for the group, Leeds-based Propaganda’s brand refresh includes a new name, corporate identity, brand campaign and collateral to effectively communicate the group’s proposition.

Formerly known as Total Vehicle Solutions Group, the new TVS Interfleet will consolidate the functions of the group and better enable the brand to future-proof the industry, working alongside the big players for fleet electrification, intelligent controls and lightweighting.

Created by private equity firm, Elaghmore Partners LLP, TVS Interfleet aims to combine specialist vehicle bodybuilder expertise from across commercial sectors including agriculture, construction, infrastructure, transport, and logistics.

The group’s goal is to enable the growth of high-end specialist manufacturing firms that deliver solutions for the commercial and industrial vehicle industry. The group is made up of Priden, SB Components, McPhee, Wilcox, and now Purpose Bodies – a new bodywork service launched alongside the rebrand.

Craig Harrold, managing director at Propaganda, said: “This rebrand demonstrates TVS Interfleet’s capabilities to help their clients keep up with changing needs and market forces, from light-weighting to emission reduction to electric and gas-powered vehicles.

“A leading brand in modernising the industry and creators of the UK’s first electric mixer in collaboration with Renault, we are pleased to be working with TVS Interfleet – continuing our heritage of purposefully building brands that aim to improve the world.”

Craig Harris, CEO and chairman of TVS Interfleet, added: “Having been introduced by Elaghmore, the team at Propaganda have blown us away with their expertise.

“Their insight showed us we needed to articulate our proposition in a different way. This new consolidated brand identity better represents the great work we do across all stages of the bodybuilding industry, and reflects the leading position we are taking in building sustainable solutions.”


West Yorkshire-based digital marketing agency, Discovery, is celebrating the launch of its latest client website for global technology company MARSS.

Discovery won the tender to rebuild the MARSS website in July 2022, beating several other Leeds-based competitors and securing a partnership for 2023.

MARSS was founded in 2005 based on the idea that leveraging innovation and technology could help protect what mattered most.

What started as a concept for an autonomous vessel docking system, has evolved into a diverse company now protecting millions of lives across the globe in all domains, from critical infrastructure to military and civil assets.

Discovery founder and MD, Steve Harrison, said: “Winning this contract was key to the agency’s growth for 2023, it has given us the opportunity to work with a major global brand and really flex our creative muscles.

“We are also keen to showcase the fact that this is the first .net Umbraco site we have built on Linux (rather than Windows) and are really impressed with the speed of the site as well as other server-side benefits of hosting on a Linux box.”
