Northgate celebrates 30th birthday

Northgate Vehicle Hire, which now runs a fleet of more than 60,000 vehicles from 62 locations across the UK and the Republic or Ireland and also operates in Spain, can trace its roots back to the launch of Noble Self Drive Hire in Darlington in 1981.

Northgate Plc has transformed itself into a fleet solutions provider with a complete range of services including Fleet Technique, which manages some 12,000 vehicles, and used vehicle outlets Van Monster and Trade Sales Direct.

Northgate Vehicle Hire sales and marketing director Gareth Jones said: “Today, the company is much more than a provider of vehicles. The business is a complete fleet solutions provider giving customers a real marketplace choice with a range of added value products.

“Northgate Vehicle Hire is the clear marketplace leader in the rental sector, but is also an expanding provider in the fleet solutions arena with a range of services that include full fleet management solutions, online fleet management reporting, occupational road risk management duty of care compliance and its own workshops for vehicle service, maintenance and repair.”

“As the company enters its fourth decade we will be continually aiming to leverage our knowledge and fleet expertise and broaden our customer base across all sizes of public and private sector organisations, but particularly in the SME (small and medium enterprises) segment.

“Additionally, the company will continually look to expand its range of fleet solutions as new services are demanded by customers to meet their fleet operating requirements.”
