Nissan has won a major, three-badge deal to supply cars to support services group, Staveley Industries plc.
Staveley is comprised of four divisions operating across the UK providing installation and maintenance services, principally in the field of electrical and mechanical engineering, and fire-safety systems.
The largest fleet-user is the maintenance division, Integral, which provides services to commercial and local authority customers.
In the year long deal, Nissan will supply Primeras, Almeras and Tinos to the group’s 1000-strong fleet, roughly half of which is made up of LCVs.
The cars will be sourced by Staveley Transport, the Birmingham based division responsible for running the group’s entire fleet. Its manager, Jill Hodgkisson commented: "We’re pleased to continue to have Nissan on our fleet and we’re especially happy with the new Primera. I think the level of technology in the car, such as the rear view camera, has proved to be very popular with a lot of people here."
Staveley’s user-choosers are not alone in being impressed by the level of in-car technology in the new Primera. Just some of the features appearing in the range-topping T-Spec include DVD satellite navigation, 7" colour monitor and N-FORM dashboard, rain sensing wipers, xenon headlamps and CD radio with sub-woofer.
And with the popular Tino and Almera being supplied as well, there should be a Nissan to suit all tastes and needs whether it is an office worker, service technician, manager or board member choosing their company car.
Nissan Fleet Sales Director, Dave Murfitt, said: "I’m delighted Staveley has chosen to extend its relationship with Nissan. The Primera is proving a big hit with many fleet managers who have been genuinely impressed by the new car’s exterior styling and equipment-packed interior."Published 26 June 2002
