Leasys UK has leapt to 19th place in the 2018 FN50 list of the UK’s largest leasing companies after growing its risk fleet 30% so far this year.
The research found the contract hire division of FCA Bank (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Bank), which represents the Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Fiat Professional and Maserati brands has a fleet size of 13,150, up 3,008 compared to last year’s research.
The company said this is due to the success of its contract hire offers and the continued popularity of products such as the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio, the Jeep Wrangler and Renegade, Abarth 595 and Fiat 500 and Fullback.
Sebastiano Fedrigo, managing director of Leasys UK, said: “The growth in the PCH segment, together with the introductions of great new models from our brands, are the key elements behind Leasys’ growth.
“2018 has been another successful year for the company where, together with increasing in fleet size, we have invested in strengthening our customer services and sales support functions.
“We have identified further potential growth in the LCV sector and SME market where we will expand our efforts going forward.
“We are also conscious that we need to leverage our working partnership with the retail network where we need to gain reach to fully exploit the potential of our sales offering.
“In the long-term, we see our growth continuing by offering competitive, comprehensive and diversified mobility solutions through our retailer network. It would be fantastic to be inside the FN50 top 15 one day soon.”
