Daniel Contractors opts for Ford

Daniel Contractors has opted for Ford vehicles after a review of its fleet. Among the key criteria were fuel efficiency, environmentally friendly vehicles and low cost of ownership.

Sean Bingham, principal consultant for ERA Fleet Cost Management, which helped Daniel to review the market, said: "We identified areas where significant efficiencies and savings could be made over and above those already achieved by Daniel.

"By opting for the fuel-efficient 1.6-litre TDCi engine in the Ford Focus and Ford Mondeo, Daniel has made great savings in terms of HMRC's advisory fuel rates."

Paul Boulds, head of transport at Daniel, added: "As a responsible business, we were looking for a product that met the high environmental standards we wanted to achieve while also providing Benefit in Kind advantages for our employees.

"We spent a considerable amount of time reviewing the market and are delighted to be buying Ford's new 1.6-litre TDCi engines featuring Econetic Technology, which will provide the business with a fleet that reduces our carbon footprint and also provides substantial cost savings for our employees and the business as a whole."
