Puddy Vehicle Solutions (PVS) won the new business of the year title in the 2016 Somerset Business Awards after identifying how clients could make savings totalling more than £64 million.
The fleet consultancy and advisory service was launched 14 months ago by Marcus Puddy and provides a cradle to grave advisory and management service to businesses operating company cars and vans and a consultancy to contract hire and leasing companies, manufacturers and dealers.
The awards, organised by the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, are in their 12th year and are designed to celebrate business success across the county, raise the profile of locally-based businesses both regionally and nationally and encourage growth within start-up organisations.
Puddy said: “PVS has gone from strength-to-strength winning contracts with organisations across the UK. We have worked with numerous businesses highlighting where cost reductions and service improvements can be made.
“PVS in its first year of trading provided services for some 15 companies, eight of which were large blue chip organisations. We have worked to enhance the commercial proposition of those companies having identified cost savings collectively totalling more than £64 million.”
