Peugeot and Pointer, an independent specialist fire and security integrator, are celebrating 21 years of doing business together.

Pointer moved to Peugeot as its primary supplier of fleet vehicles following the presentation of the 306 hatchback at the 1993 Scottish Motor Show.

Saluting this association, representatives past and present from the two companies met for a special dinner at the Mallory Court Hotel, near Leamington Spa, close to Peugeot UK's Headquarters in Coventry.

Sandy Rowan, CEO of Pointer, said: "An essential part in the development of a successful business is the partnerships you make on the way. You can learn from others' expertise to enhance yours.

"Peugeot is a great partner to work with. It has always provided us with cost effective, dependable and durable products. For us, the new 308 SW is the perfect car for our technical staff.

"Special mention should also be made of the fleet team that works really hard to look after us.

"Over the years our companies have built up a very strong relationship, based on trust, support and a willingness to work together for our mutual benefit."

Peugeot All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) with Grip Control permit Pointers to attend to emergency call-outs regardless of the location and weather conditions.

The 308 SW makes up the majority of the fleet and meets the engineer's requirements to respond to daily business needs which include responding to call outs as well.

Pointer recently placed orders for more than 30 new Peugeot vehicles. The largest part of the order is for the new 308 SW and hatchback and Bipper van with ATV.

The company also runs the refined 508 executive Saloon, 208 hatchbacks and Expert and Partner vans.

Martin Gurney, fleet and used vehicle director, said "Our approach of working with companies to provide products and support services that best suit their requirements is demonstrated clearly in the relationship we have with Pointer.

"It understands the importance of our partnership and what a good working relationship can mean to sustaining and enhancing its business."
