We started our company in 2011 with the belief that electric power is the future of funeral vehicles here and around the world. When Nissan started making the Leaf in Sunderland in the UK we decided that this was our base vehicle for production.
In 2016 we opened a new Factory Workshop in Northamptonshire where we make the Electric Hearses. You are welcome to visit if you let us know you would like to come and we also hold Open Days each year. Our hearses are mainly black but sometimes silver, maroon or white.
Because we are a UK company and have been first in this field the hearse has received several awards for innovation in the funeral industry. Our first customer Leverton and Sons has been recognised for their part as first adopter and they have received mention in a Pariimentary Review of Environmental leadership.
Brahms was recently awarded the Good Funeral Awards ‘Best Green Funeral Product’ 2016.
Keeping Costs Low
Since 2017 we have seen new international entrants into the electric hearse field. These are currently expensive competitors. Brahms will focus on minimising environmental impact and minimising the costs of vehicles we need to meet the challenges of the future.
We wanted an internationally recognised name for our company that reflects the quality and beauty of what we are trying to achieve.
The seriousness and beauty of music by Brahms inspires us as engineers and designers to achieve the very best for our customers in the UK and around the world.
We are supporting an environmental charity that seeks to conserve nature at burial grounds be they new or old and of all faiths and is run by the Charity ‘Caring for Gods Acre’. The year 2019 is the year of ‘The Beautiful Burial Ground’ and we will be helping where we can and also publicising events and things to do.
Not only are burial grounds an oasis of green in a sea of agriculture or a sea of urbanisation, they have been that way for in some cases many hundreds of years and represent a special reservoir of species diversity.
