28 September 2017: A new agreement between Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and the UK’s leading sealants and cosmetic repairs contractor, SD Sealants Ltd, will see the company take on 30 new Transporter vans over the next three years.
As part of its ongoing fleet replacement programme, the new contract strengthens the relationship between the two brands and sees the immediate order of three new T28 SWB Transporters.
First established in 1973, SD Sealants Ltd has steadily grown to be one of largest sealants specialists in the UK, with seven offices across England, Scotland and Wales. Offering a comprehensive sealant application service, cosmetic building repairs and tiling services, SD Sealants’ attention to detail and professionalism have made them one of the market leaders.
SD Sealants operates a mixed fleet of 100 vehicles. The existing sixth-generation Transporters are predominantly used for more senior employees within the company and are praised for their car-like driving experience and class-leading build quality. The new vehicles will be supplied to SD Sealants by the Vertu Van Centre in Hereford.
The wider SD Sealants’ fleet is used by both the sealants service and the cosmetics repair teams. The flexible load space and impressive payload capacity of the Transporter make it the ideal vehicle for all of the company’s business needs.
Nick Jones, managing director at SD Sealants, commented: “As a market-leading company that provides a quality service, the Volkswagen Transporter definitely mirrors our ethos. Our employees travel up and down the country every day using the vehicles as a practical tool box to carry everything they need for their job. So not only is the Transporter a fantastic resource to carry tools and equipment, it also allows drivers to be fresh and ready to work after a comfortable journey.
“Our Transporter fleet is seen within the business as a reward for becoming one of our senior craftsmen and everyone who drives the Transporter loves its excellent build quality and car-like drive.”
