Pure CF, which supplies bespoke fixtures and fittings to the hospitality industry, has now taken delivery of five new vans from Motiva for its busy installations team.
Managing director Paul Gill says the move is a sign that the hospitality sector, and particularly the restaurant trade, is thriving once more.
He said: “Our business has been booming during the last few years and that shows that hotels, restaurants and pubs are doing well again.
“Our fleet of vehicles has naturally increased in line with the growth of the company and, with the addition of these new vans, we now have 11 on our books.”
The vehicles, each decked out in the company’s green and black livery featuring a striking new logo, will each be allocated to a senior installer.
Gill added: “The new vans will help make us more efficient at a stroke and will help keep costs to a minimum.
“We operate all over the country and our client base is growing constantly. The restaurant market in particular is growing at a remarkable rate.
“Our fitters will now be able to remain off-site for a number of days at a time so we can undertake multiple fit-outs at the same time.”
Pure CF designs, manufactures and supplies fixed seating, tables, chairs, cabinets and bespoke items for the hospitality trade.
The company employed 45 people back in 2010, but now has more than 100 on its books.
Much of its commercial fleet, which includes three trucks and now eight vans, is provided and maintained by Staffordshire firm Motiva Group.
He said: “Motiva are competitive on pricing and provide an excellent all-round service.
“They’re always very responsive and their partnership approach is very important to us.”
Peter Wright, sales and marketing director at Motiva, says demand for trucks and vans has never been stronger.
Contract hire for HGVs almost doubled last year and figures in 2015 have been similarly encouraging.
He said: “The number of contracts we are dealing with through our M-Way truck solutions arm has shot up in the last year or so.
“Companies are now showing much greater demand for vans and trucks on their fleet and that’s a sign that the economy, both in Staffordshire and the UK as a whole, is on the up again.
“We’re now geared up better than we’ve ever been in the past and can supply any van or HGV, from 7.5 tonne up to 44 tonne, and from rigid units to triaxles along with all types of trailers.
“We also have funding partners in place to grow our van and truck solutions business further.”
