Fleet Alliance continues Skypark expansion

Martin Brown, Fleet Alliance

Fleet Alliance Group has increased the office space at its Skypark base, in line with the business's continued expansion.

The company now manages a fleet valued at £1bn, following an increase to 37,000 vehicles under its management.

Martin Brown (pictured), managing director of Fleet Alliance, said: “We have been going through a period of rapid expansion in the last 12 months, thanks in no small part to the award of a large fleet management contract by one of the country’s major leasing companies.

“Against a market that has fallen by around 4% this year, we are bucking the trend and expecting to see growth of around 20% by the end of this calendar year. 

“The additional business space at Skypark will provide us with the scope to accommodate this.”

The new offices will be used to house the company’s increasing team of technical and customer service staff.

Its fleet has grown from 25,000 vehicles to 37,000 in less than a year.

The group has also arranged funding worth £160 million for nearly 8,000 new cars in the SME and fleet market, with an emphasis on electric vehicles (EVs) being implemented. 

Brown continued: “The outcome of the Government’s review into the impact of WLTP has been a game-changer, with the introduction of a nil rate of benefit-in-kind tax for cars with zero emissions.

“We are now starting to see significant orders for ULEVs (Ultra Low Emission Vehicles) coming through across the board – for battery electric cars, hybrids and RDE2 diesels. 

“We are also seeing substantial orders for the new Tesla Model 3 which is looking like an affordable car following the changes to the tax regime.”
