National Windscreens has further strengthened its service for fleet operators with the appointment of an additional business development manager, James Cook.
He has 14 years’ experience in direct sales and business development for national companies, including five years working in the automotive glazing sector.
Pete Marsden, National Windscreens managing director, said: “We are delighted to welcome James as part of our dedicated team where he will be working alongside fleet manager Nick Broughall to ensure all our customers continue to receive the best possible proactive service.
“His knowledge and ideas will be invaluable as we strive to further increase the number of fleets we support.
"Ninety-five out of the top 100 HGV fleets are contracted to National Windscreens. These include Eddie Stobart, Lex Autolease, Tesco, Ministry of Defence, Europcar and Northgate Vehicle Hire.
“We are also the primary supplier to more than 30 car fleets in FN50 and three of the top five daily rental fleets so this appointment will enable us to further build on our success in this sector."
Cook added: “Fleet customers are very important to us as a company and a key factor that made me join National Windscreens is the commitment to a UK-wide network of 108 fitting and calibration centres and 800 mobile technicians."
With an increasing number of new vehicles having Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) fitted as standard, predicted to be 40% of vehicles with such systems by 2020, this national network is now even more critical to effectively servicing the needs of fleet operators.
“National Windscreens has already undertaken more than 2,800 calibrations of these cameras following windscreen replacement."
