AWARD-WINNING vehicle funding and fleet management specialist, Fleet Alliance, is on track for a fourth successive record year in terms of fleet size, revenue and profitability.
After an outstanding start to 2014, where new vehicle orders increased by more than 45% in the first six months of the year, Fleet Alliance has also seen growth in all areas of its business operations so far this year.
These sectors include SME, corporate fleet and daily rental, plus a 20% increase in staff numbers.
To deal with the growth in business and staff numbers, Fleet Alliance have just moved to Skypark, Scotland’s largest community of more than 3,500 people in office, retail and studio accommodation in Finnieston, within walking distance of Glasgow city centre.
“We are growing at a faster than anticipated rate and the move to Skypark, in the centre of Glasgow, gives us a 20% increase in office space and represents a £1.8m investment for the company,” said managing director Martin Brown.
“For example, we are looking to increase our presence in the mainstream corporate fleet and are introducing a number of new initiatives in this area, including maintenance management on a pay-as-you-go basis for those companies that are looking to reduce their maintenance costs.
“We have also taken on additional members of staff and will be looking to increase staff numbers still further during the remainder of the year as we continue to grow,” he said.
Fleet Alliance, which manages and funds in excess of 14,000 vehicles on behalf of its customers, puts the increase in trading in the first half of this year down to better economic conditions, a growing UK fleet market and increased investment in its technology and customer service offering.
