Shake-up sees Tarmac adding Toyota and Rover to fleet

TARMAC has implemented a wholesale shake-up of its fleet suppliers, with the inclusion of Toyota on the list for the first time. The building giant retains its three-badge policy, but has dropped Ford and Peugeot in favour of Rover and Toyota while keeping Vauxhall on the list.

Tarmac, which operates a fleet of 4,500 cars, has operated a three-badge deal for 10 years and reviews its purchasing policy every two years. The fleet volume increased by about a quarter last year when Tarmac acquired the construction division of Wimpey.

The vehicles are replaced at between 36 and 42 months and employees have an unrestricted choice from the three marques in line with their status although directors and other senior managers have a wider choice of executive vehicles. The deal is not weighted to favour any of the three suppliers and wholelife costs and customer care were the two key criteria upon which each manufacturer was judged.
