Kao Group aligns fleet car policy in major JCT600 Audi deal
‘This deal is a marriage made in heaven. It’s fantastic to bring together three prestige brands which have so much synergy,’ commented Mike Papworth, group Audi fleet sales manager for JCT600 Audi. ‘We were able to convince Kao that instead of having a disparate car policy across various brands, it should adopt a unified company car strategy delivered by JCT600 Audi.’
Under the deal JCT600 is set to supply the Kao Group with around 100 vehicles a year. The majority of these vehicles will be Audi A5 Sportsback models, as well as a selection of Audi A1 and Audi A3 models and some Audi Q3 models.
Nik Butcher, total reward manager, EMEA for the Kao Group, said: ‘We have been very impressed by the professionalism of JCT600’s fleet operation and believe that the move to Audi-only company cars fits well with our premium brand. So far, we have been extremely pleased with JCT600’s organisation and attention to detail – we are confident that they will provide excellent levels of service.’
Papworth added: ‘We have invested a considerable amount of time in developing the relationship with the company. Having sent in numerous demonstrators, every one delivered on time by a uniformed driver, our commitment to outstanding customer service became evident and we were able to convince the company that our proposal is the best solution for their fleet needs.’
