Prestige Fleet Servicing reaches one-million vehicle milestone
Helped by new client wins, Prestige Fleet Servicing has reached the milestone of one million vehicles managed by its portfolio of clients.
The firm, which specialises in cost effective added-value servicing to fleet operators throughout the UK, reports recent client successes including a major vehicle auction house, a leading breakdown and recovery operator, a UK vehicle warranty provider and several key corporate fleets, as well as its most recent three-year, multi-thousand vehicle contract.
To cope with the additional demand, Prestige is now looking to further expand its network of service centres, from its current level of 305 centres to around 350 outlets by the end of this year. This is in line with its ongoing expansion plans which have seen it grow by 33% from 230 outlets just 15 months ago.
The East Midlands-based operation is now looking to strengthen its presence geographically in key parts of the country. These include Scotland, where it has just added additional service centres in Aberdeen, Dundee and Greenock to supplement existing outlets in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen.
In Northern Ireland, it has added a fourth centre to its existing three outlets and strengthened its light commercial vehicle offering to a predominantly commercial fleet customer base.
Meanwhile, in England and Wales, further centres have been added in Cardiff, Rotherham, Brigg, Kidderminster, Maidstone and Hayes, Middlesex.
Commercial director Joe Bhamra explained: “This planned expansion is necessary to meet the increased customer demand following our latest series of new client wins, plus the organic growth we have witnessed in recent months which has seen the company grow considerably.
“So, we are looking to recruit high calibre, professionally-run, independent fleet servicing outlets in certain geographical locations around the country to ensure we provide a uniformity and consistency of servicing to our ever-expanding portfolio of fleet clients,” he added.
