Vauxhalls head for the woods

VAUXHALL Public Sector Operations has won a contract to supply vans for the Forestry Commission's 1,800-strong fleet. The fleet is currently made up of 30% Vauxhalls, plus a wide range of other makes, all owned by the Commission. The new deal involves the supply of Brava trucks, Astravans and Astra pool cars, some bought outright and others on contract hire.

Astravans will be built to the Commission's specification with increased ground clearance for forest roads, in order that they can be used by supervisors and small teams of forestry workers. Vauxhall Master Hire has been awarded the contract hire deal, which includes full maintenance. The first delivery of a phased handover of more than 900 vehicles has taken place at Forest Enterprise's M.E.S workshop in North Wales.
