Reliability, efficiency and low running costs have made Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles the default choice for hundreds of businesses in the UK.
For independent asbestos management company Lucion Environmental, that commitment to quality has seen it enjoy a relationship with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles for more than 10 years. To mark this important milestone, the Gateshead-based firm will take delivery of 25 new Volkswagen commercial vehicles as part of its ongoing expansion.
The new Caddy and Transporter models will be used across Lucion Environmental’s seven offices nationwide. The firm specialises in the surveying and analysis of asbestos-containing materials, and delivers hazard management services to the built and marine environments.
As part of the deal, Lucion Environmental will take advantage of Volkswagen’s fleet management services – which are specially tailored to suit the company’s individual requirements. These allow the company to benefit from additional services, including vehicle acquisition, service and maintenance management, along with a personal dedicated support system for drivers.
‘The business has experienced rapid growth especially over the last few years, and without a dedicated fleet manager on the team we rely on the Volkswagen Group Leasing service to ensure that our fleet is running at an optimum level at all times.’ Charles Pickles, Financial Director at Lucion Environmental, said: ‘We are pleased to be continuing our relationship with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles by bolstering our fleet with 25 new vans. Reliability is essential to the smooth running of our business and Volkswagen gives us exactly that.
