Axis Fleet Management has launched a new mobile maintenance division to service its UK-wide customer base, headed by Ian Ashman.
Ashman’s (pictured) role will be focused on coordinating operations to deliver an industry leading service to Axis customers throughout the UK.
Axis’ managing director Leigh Goodland said: “I’m delighted to welcome Ian Ashman to head up the new unit. He has had a decade and a half of experience in mobile vehicle maintenance with a particularly strong focus on trailer as well as tractor servicing.
"This knowledge and understanding will benefit our customers by helping reduce down time and ensuring their operations remain fully compliant.”
The division will provide on-site maintenance and repair, to help customers’ trailer availability and up time.
It is currently recruiting skilled engineers for the new unit. It has invested in the latest diagnostic equipment and the initial mobile maintenance vehicles are under development, with the first due to be operational within six weeks.
Goodland said: “The new mobile maintenance division marks another positive step forward in being the UK’s market leading customer-focused fleet management company.
"The significant investment in an in-house maintenance and repair service will give us direct control in ensuring our customers enjoy consistently high standards of service across the country.”
