Currently, IFS is based in Portsmouth, while IVC has offices in Corby, Coventry and Norwich. Under the plan, both firms will become Inchcape Fleet Solutions, based in Portsmouth. The long-term plan is for the Norwich office to close. The firm said it was confident it could deliver improved services and a wider range of products if it operated from one site using a single brand.
Terry Bartlett, managing director of IFS, said: 'This move brings together two operations which already have strong synergies that will be able to evolve further.
'The sales teams have already been integrated into a business to business sales force with a full knowledge of the products and services available.'
Inchcape is consulting with staff in Norwich about the proposals and the move will take place if they are endorsed.
