Genus Vehicle Solutions celebrates expansion
The company was started in 2001 when directors Tony Davis and Alan Beckett, who had spent 20 years working in car dealerships, spotted an opportunity to supply a wider range of vehicles and flexible finance options.
‘We realised that there was a real niche for an independent, customer service based contract hire and leasing provider, run by experienced people,' said Mr Davis. ‘We decided to concentrate on the quality of service and searching for the best car at the best price for every client.’
Since then, Genus has built a solid reputation with local companies, providing fleet cars and offering free expert advice on motoring efficiency, fuel emissions and company car tax implications.
As well as providing extra office space, the company’s spacious new headquarters also features secure indoor storage and a handover area where customers can drop off their old vehicle and collect a shiny new model.
The company is looking to expand further with the launch of a state-of-the-art fleet management service. However the firm says it remains based on good old fashioned customer service.
‘We have survived and thrived on our industry knowledge, personal service and getting the best deal for every single customer – that’s what we want Genus to be known for,' concluded Mr Davis.
