Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles secures a £1.7 million deal to supply over 80 Transporter vans to Arcus Engineering who operate the refrigeration maintenance contract in the South East for Sainsbury’s supermarkets. 

The fleet comprises the new, more fuel-efficient Volkswagen Transporter van launched earlier this year, along with some of Volkswagen’s smaller van, the Caddy, to work in and around London.  The vehicles, interior conversions and contract hire agreement have been managed by Lex Autolease. 

Past experience and the reputation of the Volkswagen brand helped to secure the order as ArcusFM fleet manager, Janet Bass, explained.

‘It was imperative that we launched Arcus Engineering with a fleet that was reliable and robust.  Abridge Van Centre was very helpful throughout the process by providing a range of demonstrator vehicles that we could test at our leisure before making the decision. ‘

‘We are delighted that Arcus Engineering is satisfied with the vehicles and our customer service,’ said Wendy Williamson, Commercial Sales Manager at Abridge Van Centre in Loughton, Essex.’ she added.
