ICL extends contract with Vauxhall to cover Europe

COMPUTER giant ICL has extended its long-standing fleet deal with Vauxhall to cover the company's European fleet in a three-year preferred supplier agreement. ICL operates some 5,000 cars in the UK and a further 2,000 on the continent and the new arrangements should see General Motors increase its penetration of the fleet from 70% to 80% by the end of the contract period.

Vauxhall's current agreement, which goes back 10 years, covers 100% of the job car fleet and provides a preferred supplier deal for the management cars, which gives Vauxhall product a marked advantage on the choice lists. The new arrangements, which follow hard on the heels of Vauxhall's pioneering global preferred supply deal with Honeywell, will see the relationship continuing in the UK, but with Opel cars added to the continental fleet.

All vehicles will be supplied on contract hire though Dial Contracts and Swan National Motor Finance on replacement cycles of between two and four years and up to 80,000 miles. The arrangements will be duplicated on the continent and co-ordinated by General Motors Europe, although terms will differ slightly from country to country.
