JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions (VLS) has secured a sole supply partnership with Doncaster-based Humac Civil Engineering to provide full maintenance contract hire for its car and van fleet comprising 100 vehicles in total.
The deal includes an initial order for 31 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi kombi vans.
The new agreement with JCT600 is part of Humac Civil Engineering’s ongoing fleet replacement plan that will see the company purchase a total of 56 Volkswagen vehicles from JCT600 VLS over the next 12 months.
Predominantly a ground works contractor, Humac Civil Engineering provides a range of solutions to the building and construction industry.
The new vehicles have been supplied directly from the JCT600 Volkswagen Van Centre Hull, working in partnership with JCT600 VLS to create a package that exactly meets Humac’s budget and working needs.
All of the vehicles have been ordered in Volkswagen’s distinctive chestnut brown which matches Humac’s own corporate colours; and they have been fitted with a partition guard behind the second row of seats and ply lining of the load area.
The new Caddy Maxi kombi vans will be used as crew vehicles to transport Humac engineers from site-to-site.
Paul Walters, JCT600 VLS managing director, said: “This is a great example of the JCT600 group working together, with VLS supplying the contract hire and our Volkswagen colleagues providing the perfect vehicle for Humac’s needs.
“We are uniquely placed to be able to access this kind of industry co-operation and expertise for the benefit of our customers. This is particularly true when it comes to a very specialist area such as commercial vehicles where selecting the correct vehicle and fittings is crucial.”
Adrian McDonald, at Humac Civil Engineering, added: “The Volkswagen Caddy offers us the ideal crew vehicle for our business needs and JCT600 was able to provide us with a complete supply and funding package from a single company. They gave us a great solution to our fleet needs and we look forward to working with them over the coming years.”
