Dyson cleans up with new Transit Connect fleet

HOUSEHOLD appliance manufacturer Dyson has taken on more than 170 Ford Transit Connect vans for use by its service engineers.

The diesel vehicles, decked in a livery featuring images of its latest vacuum cleaner, are contract-hired through Lloyds TSB autolease on a four-year replacement cycle.

Engineers will use the long-wheelbase, high-roof vans to respond to customer calls.

The company said a high level of specification means the vans are well-received by staff using them.

Field service manager Malcolm Hind said: ‘We’ve specced them up with the six-way adjustable seats with lumbar adjustment and armrests plus air-conditioning, and they say it’s more like driving a comfortable car than a van. It makes their whole day easier and less stressful.’
