Ford puts focus on SMEs
Ford is to run its first-ever Business Week event (2-10 June) which will see business specialists at the carmaker’s dealership network target drivers at SME firms.
The event will see the carmaker highlight the fuel-saving benefits of the hybrid petrol and electric Ford Mondeo while Ford Lease business contract hire will include free service and maintenance for select cars and vans for up to three years/20k miles during Business Week.
Ford fleet director Owen Gregory said: “SMEs are a huge part of the economic engine that is GB PLC. Their turnover represents almost half that of the private sector, but still we hear that SMEs find suppliers and lenders hard to work with.
“As their car and van supplier, also offering finance from Ford Lease, we are making ourselves expressly available for local businesses during next month’s first Ford Business Week.”
