Automotive glazing supplier Auto Windscreens has bagged its first deal in the retail sector with supermarket Morrisons.
Auto Windscreens successfully completed a three-month trial for Morrisons in Kent and Glasgow, to check out processes, procedures and service at both ends of the country.
It has now been named the sole glazing provider for the fleet of commercial vehicles delivering products from nine distribution centres to 480 stores around the UK.
Auto Windscreens expects to undertake around 450 jobs annually on Morrisons' vehicles, which, depending on the time of year, number between 650-750.
Joy Cooper, sales director at Auto Windscreens, said: "Winning the Morrisons account is a huge coup for us. Its vehicles operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and work to very tight deadlines, so it requires the highest standard of service from its suppliers. We're proud to be working with Morrisons and look forward to helping it keep its commercial vehicles on the road."
