GE Capital has announced a new three year sole supply deal to provide contract hire and a wide range of fleet services for the 1,300 vehicles operated by property maintenance specialist Integral UK.
Integral is one of the largest independent providers of property maintenance services in the UK, providing both planned, preventative and reactive building and facilities maintenance to over 1,600 clients in 40,000 locations. The company has an operational nationwide fleet of 650 cars and 650 light commercial vehicles that are supplied to technicians and engineers covering every postcode area of the UK.
In addition to funding, policy consultancy and dedicated LCV support, GE Capital will also be providing Integral with fleet management services which include accident management, breakdown and roadside assistance, vehicle maintenance management, daily rental replacement vehicles, driver support and risk management.
As part of the new arrangement, a revised company car choice policy based on selected manufacturers is currently being implemented. In addition, GE Capital will be working in close partnership with Integral’s regional fleet administrators on LCV support.
Keith Abell, fleet manager at Integral UK Ltd, said: “Efficient and effective operation of our fleet is a crucial part of meeting the needs of our customers so identifying the best-fit fleet supplier is key to our service delivery. GE Capital stood out as having the potential to provide the depth of service, knowledge and expertise to deliver what we need, and are clearly very committed and capable.”
Gary Killeen, fleet services commercial leader for GE Capital UK, said: “We are delighted to announce such a significant new fleet deal. Integral UK is a highly professional company and we are already enjoying working with them.”
