Venson Automotive Solutions has started to supply company cars to The Salvation Army after becoming one of two suppliers to the organisation.
The company, which has replaced another leasing firm as one of two vehicle suppliers following a competitive tender process conducted by the church and registered charity, has so far supplied around 40 company cars to The Salvation Army and has around a further 50 on order.
The Salvation Army runs a 750-strong company car fleet on three-year/51,000-mile contracts. Previously an all-diesel fleet, a comprehensive review of available cars and whole life costs, including new technologies with regards to fuel type and fuel economy means that all new vehicles will be petrol-engined models.
Venson Automotive Solutions joins incumbent supplier ALD Automotive as the two vehicle providers to The Salvation Army, which operates a largely Vauxhall fleet including Corsas, Merivas, Astras and Zafiras alongside a number of other makes and models, with cars driven by officers and essential users.
