Vauxhall clinches 1,200 car solus deal with Bass

VAUXHALL has clinched a 1,200 vehicle solus deal with the Leisure division of brewing giant Bass. The contract gives Vauxhall a single badge arrangement to supply work cars - all Corsas and Astras - to Bass's Leisure division.

The cars, which will be used by the division's representatives, service engineers and collectors to supply licensed premises throughout the country with gaming machines, will all be diesels in line with Bass policy. The company's fleet policy now allows divisions to choose between Vauxhall, Rover/BMW and Nissan, where previously only Vauxhall and Ford were options.

The Leisure division previously operated an all-Ford policy, but switched to solus Vauxhall after replacing its Escorts with Astras last year. The current fleet numbers 1,200 vehicles but is expected to grow further over the duration of the two-year contract with Vauxhall.

COVENTRY Vauxhall Business Centre Brandish has supplied seven specially liveried Combo vans to local electrical engineers D&J Henry after taking the business from Ford.
