NATIONAL news agency and a leading multimedia content provider PA has chosen JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions (VLS) to supply a fully outsourced fleet management service for its 60-plus vehicle fleet and offer competitive deals to its 1,200 employees.
The deal includes full service contract hire, grey fleet management and driving licence checks.
PA – the Press Association, which has a base in Howden in Yorkshire – began looking for a new fleet supplier a year ago and focused on companies with the experience, reputation and customer-focused approach it needed to support its wide-reaching journalists and photographers.
JCT600 VLS, the specialist leasing and fleet management division of Bradford-based JCT600, was able to quickly demonstrate that it could meet all of these requirements and the relationship has developed into a sole supply agreement with JCT600 VLS extending the range of services it delivers to PA.
In addition, through the JCT600 group, all 1,200 PA employees, as well as their families, will have the additional benefit of access to competitive opportunities on a wide range of car makes and models.
Sophie Ingram, head of procurement at PA, said, “We have been delighted with the service JCT600 VLS has delivered to us and, most importantly, to our drivers since we decided to use them 12 months ago.
“They have met and exceeded all our expectations and continue to provide a really high quality product. We are excited about extending this wider within PA so that all of our employees can benefit from this relationship.”
Paul Walters, sales director for JCT600 VLS, added, “We are, of course, extremely pleased to add such a prestigious company to our growing customer portfolio and to receive such glowing feedback.
“It really shows that listening to the client, giving attention to detail and consistently providing g a quality service continue to be the most important factors in ensuring customer satisfaction. We now look forward to having the opportunity to deliver the same benefits to the rest of PA’s employees.”
