Stannah replaces pool fleet with new Seat Ibiza models

Stairlift manufacturer Stannah has replaced its head office pool fleet with 13 new Seat Ibiza hatchbacks.

The 12 Ibiza 1.0 EcoTSI SE models, plus an Ibiza 1.0 EcoTSI FR with DSG transmission, have been supplied by the Business Centre at Snows Seat Southampton.

The company already has a number of Seat Leons already in operation. These have impressed with strong reliability and economy, leading to the adoption of the Leon’s smaller sibling, the Ibiza, for the fleet.

Stannah’s Ibizas benefit from enhanced comfort and safety features including cruise control, hill hold control and tiredness recognition systems, all of which support duty of care responsibilities. The generous standard SE specification also includes air conditioning, 15” alloy wheels, a Media System with a 5” colour touchscreen and DAB radio.

Jean Olding, fleet controller at Stannah, commented: “The Seat service team in the Business Centre at Snows Seat Southampton assisted greatly with our decision making process, helping us to find the right vehicles for our needs.

“Stannah is a family-owned business which has a long history of delivering quality products and services on which businesses and individuals depend day in and day out for movement of goods and people, and our fleet needs to encompass and reflect our commitment to delivering those core values.

“Reliability and the total cost of ownership were key priorities when making a shortlist as our vehicles are required nationwide 365 days a year. We have been very pleased with the existing Seat's on our fleet and we are confident that Seat helped us make the right decision for the new pool cars on the fleet.”

Seat UK’s head of fleet and business sales, Peter McDonald, added: “We are naturally pleased that Stannah has returned to us to find the right solution for its growing fleet.

“Not only have we been able to specify and fulfil a selection of vehicles which are perfectly suited for the requirement, but our dedicated regional team at Snows has also demonstrated the quality of service which fleet customers can expect when they deal with Seat. 

“I have no doubt that Stannah’s drivers will enjoy the driving experience offered by our Ibiza and Leon ranges and that the cars will continue to perform exceptionally for the business.”

Caroline Dance, corporate sales manager at Snows Seat Southampton, added: “Snows is dedicated to finding ideal solutions for its clients, and we are delighted that we could provide the perfect vehicles for Stannah Lifts on this occasion.

“A wide range of attractive features, combined with an ability to deliver all year round, make the Ibiza and Leon models a popular choice for businesses and we look forward to working with Stannah further in the future.”
