The coveted title - Fleet Manufacturer of the Year - has been awarded to Vauxhall at the 2010 Fleet News Awards held on Wednesday 17th March 2010 at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.
Fleet Manufacturer of the Year is not only one of the prestigious Headline Awards at the event, it is also one of the most coveted honours of the night as it is voted for entirely by independent fleet managers across the country.
Maurice Howkins, Fleet Sales Director for Vauxhall said: "We're absolutely delighted to receive this recognition from our customers, especially in such testing times for the industry. We strive to provide our customers not only with a great choice of vehicles, including our award winning ecoFLEX range, but also with the best support network in the industry from our fleet sales and aftersales teams and our retailers."
Commenting, Fleet News editor Stephen Briers said: "Vauxhall's extensive dealer network, the innovative way it maintains its market position and its strong fleet model line-up, which includes the ecoFLEX green range, were behind our readers' decision to vote Vauxhall as their fleet manufacturer of the year."
Every year, the highly influential Fleet News Awards reward the best fleets, suppliers and manufacturers in the country for their hard work, great products and commitment to best practice initiatives that provide efficient, safe and environmentally-friendly transport solutions to drivers.
Vauxhall has been a mainstay of the UK fleet industry for decades, with a strong product line-up including the new Vauxhall Astra, Vauxhall Insignia and Vauxhall Corsa and the award winning ecoFLEX range.
The comprehensive vehicle range is backed up by a large network of retailers - more than 400 - to cope with any company's geographical spread. The network is further bolstered by the Vauxhall Fleet aftersales team, who have helped the Vauxhall Insignia and Vauxhall Zafira become the bestselling cars in their segments.Published 22 March 2010
