Fleet Assist expansion plans spur relocation

Fleet Assist is relocating to offices in Huntingdon in line with its ongoing expansion.

Launched in 2003, the supply chain management specialist works with a significant number of the UK’s major contract hire and leasing companies and vehicle rental operators, offering a network of more than 5,000 franchise and independent service outlets which undertake service, maintenance and repair (SMR) work on company cars and vans. The network is supported by a contact centre and technical authorisation services as well as data analytics.

The move, which is planned for quarter two, will see the firm remain in Cambridgeshire but move from its current premises at Gaynes Hall, Perry to Ermine Business Park, Huntingdon.

Commenting on the reasons for the move, managing director Vincent St Claire said: “The business is growing rapidly and the new offices provides the company with significant additional space to recruit new staff.

“The new office is situated close to good public transport and road links, which makes Fleet Assist easier for visitors to find and provides an improved location to recruit new staff. Improved facilities and local amenities for employees allied to enhanced communication access further reinforce the decision to relocate.”

He added: “The decision to invest in the new office facility ensures we future proof the business to enable the continual development of the products and services offered whilst ensuring they are scalable.

“We continue to see significant interest from more contract hire companies as well as rental companies in helping them to manage vehicle SMR; and, with an ever-increasing focus on cost management there is growing interest from customers in utilising our vehicle maintenance authorisation service and our service booking facility.”
