Parts distributor adds Vauxhall Combos

Automotive aftermarket parts distribution company FPS has taken delivery of 35 Vauxhall Combos.

Painted in FPS's distinctive peppermint green, the 35 vehicles are all the long wheelbase L2 models with ply lining and have joined the company's 390 vehicle fleet.

The vans have start/stop technology, helping reduce the company's CO2 and fuel usage throughout its daily deliveries.

The vehicles will be used to service the company's 2,500 motor trade-based clients, making up to six deliveries a day between a network of 20 sites across the UK, covering around 50,000 miles each year.

"We are very pleased to add 35 more Vauxhalls to our fleet," said Stuart Collett, fleet manager at FPS.  "We currently have 164 Vauxhall vans including a fleet of Vivaros and 10 cars which we have used for the last four to five years without a single fault."

"The added start/stop feature means we can reduce emissions even further, something that we take seriously here at FPS, while at the same time seeing a return on the overall fuel consumption of our fleet."

"We are pleased that FPS has decided to continue to use the Vauxhall brand and are confident that the business will continue to enjoy their dependability, comfort and economy," said Richard Collier, Vauxhall's national commercial vehicle and B2B sales manager.
