When sister company MAN wanted a fleet of vehicles to replace ones from its incumbent supplier they turned to Volkswagen Financial Services | Fleet (VWFS | Fleet) to find a more competitive arrangement.
And through Phil Jones, Corporate Sales Manager for VWFS│Fleet, both parties came up trumps with a deal that supplied MAN with a shiny fleet of Caddys, Crafters, Transporters and company cars.
James Gunn, MAN Purchasing and Facilities Manager, said: “It was a good end result. We had a lot of value through the savings that were delivered compared to our current deal.
“There was quite a fast turnaround once we had reached a satisfactory agreement and Phil had in-depth knowledge of our requirements through his close links with the manufacturer and converters.
“Phil was able to introduce us to accredited converters such as Bristor who could provide off-the-shelf solutions. He also arranged a visit to Bristor where we could see conversions taking place that helped one of our internal stakeholders come on board with the project.
“It was a complicated project and the value that we were able to unlock compared to what our previous supplier was able to provide made doing business with VWFS │Fleet very satisfactory.”
