MacNeillie will also apply police liveries to the vehicles, and at the end of a vehicle's police life, the company will strip and decommission it. MacNeillie has been working with the force since the early 1980s and managing director Keith Bradley says it is a landmark for the company to win the outsourcing contract to serve the Met's 3,500-strong non-covert fleet.
Receiver for the MPS, Philip Fletcher, said: 'Properly equipped and prepared police vehicles are crucial to our successful ability to deliver an effective policing service to the people of London. This announcement follows a lengthy and rigorous selection process. MacNeillie will deliver vehicles to a consistently high quality and achieve significant cost savings for the MPS.'
