AGL announces RVM Assist as its latest strategic acquisition

Mark Woods exec chair Activate Group 2017

Activate Group Limited (AGL) has acquired RVM Assist in latest push towards growing a nationwide customer base of clients.

The RVM Assist transaction follows in short order from the acquisitions of Car Repair Network, Sopp and Sopp and Vigilance which were announced in early September.

AGL’s executive chairman Mark Woods (pictured) said: “Most of AGL’s clients are involved to a greater or lesser extent in controlling driving risk and we anticipate great interest from our clients in what RVM has to offer.

"Their services blend seamlessly with those of our core business offering.”

RVM Assist owner Paul Rose said: “Joining AGL is an exciting step for RVM as the services we offer are wholly complementary to one another.

“Our strategic approach to reducing driver risk is our greatest strength.

"We support fleets by providing remedies that are tailored to the risks we discover, always considering the whole range of potential causes such as aspects of the driver’s role, the culture of the client business, the equipment fitted to the vehicle and the type of vehicle being used.”

AGL’s chairman Mark Wilcox said: “The agreement with RVM to become part of our Group represents another example of how we are expanding our business with well-established partners with strong customer relationships in the fleet management, corporate and insurance markets.

“These relationships will be carefully nurtured and maintained with the immediate benefit of an expanded group capability that can provide tailored solutions for clients.”
