VMS expands into South Wales with new Bridgend-based depot

VMS Fleet Management has expanded into South Wales with a new depot based in Bridgend.

The depot offers fleet management services including maintenance, MOT, workshop and body-shop, as well as local vehicle hire through VMS Vehicle Hire.

The company said it will utilise the Bridgend site to increase its service offering to its UK-wide network of clients.

Martin James, managing director of VMS Fleet Management, said: “The Bridgend location is the perfect opportunity for us to help make our current service offering more accessible in the South West of the UK, where demand has been extremely high of late.

“Now we’re able to assure our customers that we can deal with their enquiry as expertly and efficiently as we can anywhere else in the UK. We have strong growth plans and this new site will help us to effectively meet these plans.”

The depot opening has also created 10 new jobs in the local area with positions ranging from administration through to engineering. The site will also feature a MOT class 7 bay.

James added: “With the current pandemic it is fantastic to be able to offer some employment opportunities in the area when it’s most needed. We’re looking forward to developing the new team and can’t wait to start serving customers from the Bridgend area.”

VMS Fleet Management currently operates in six sites across the UK including Stevenage, Tamworth, Tiverton, Sunderland, Warrington, and Bathgate.

The expansion is part of its planned growth drive of the network into Wales, following demand for fleet services in the area increased throughout 2020, said VMS.

VMS currently operate more than 5,000 vehicles in its overall fleet, with over 1,000 vehicles in its rental fleet.
