The Audi fleet division of Yorkshire-based JCT600 has been awarded a major contract for the exclusive supply of company cars to bath and body products company Molton Brown, Goldwell and KMS California, parts of the Kao Group.
The deal is likely to encompass JCT600 supplying the Kao Group with around 100 vehicles a year.
The majority of these vehicles will be Audi A5 Sportsback models, as well as a selection of Audi A1 and Audi A3 models and some Audi Q3 models.
“It’s fantastic to bring together three prestige brands which have so much synergy,” said Mike Papworth, group Audi fleet sales manager for JCT600 Audi.
“We were able to convince Kao that instead of having a disparate car policy across various brands, it should adopt a unified company car strategy delivered by JCT600 Audi.
“We have invested a considerable amount of time in developing the relationship with the company.
“Having sent in numerous demonstrators, every one delivered on time by a uniformed driver, our commitment to outstanding customer service became evident and we were able to convince the company that our proposal is the best solution for their fleet needs.”
Nik Butcher, total reward manager, EMEA for the Kao Group, added: “We have been very impressed by the professionalism of JCT600’s fleet operation and believe that the move to Audi-only company cars fits well with our premium brand.
“So far, we have been extremely pleased with JCT600’s organisation and attention to detail – we are confident that they will provide excellent levels of service.”
Based in Bradford, JCT600’s fleet division comprises prestige fleet operations representing BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi; and volume fleet division consisting of Vauxhall, Kia, Mazda, Peugeot, Seat and Chevrolet.
JCT600 is a family business with 42 dealerships throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and the North East.
It sells 21 of the world’s most respected brands such as Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen.
