Cleaning and maintenance specialist NIC Support Services has had the BT phone box cleaning deal for the north of England and Scotland for a number of years.
Since winning the contract to cover the whole of the UK, the company has had to re-appraise its mobility needs and acquire a further 400 Vauxhall vehicles. These include car-derived vans and small and medium-sized saloons for its mobile maintenance and cleaning forces.
In a multi-million pound contract, NIC Support Services has taken on 319 Combos, 70 Corsas, nine Vectras and two Omegas.
John Spencer, group chief executive of parent firm G & J Spencer Group, which operates a total of 1,000 vehicles, said: 'The new deal with Vauxhall will enable us to deliver a premium service to our customers and so help reduce the number of occasions that the nation's phone boxes are out of action.'
