BRENTWOOD, England – The Mears Group, a leading UK property services provider, has receiving its first delivery of 100 Transit Connect vans.
Under a five-year contract with Mears, Ford will supply up to 1,000 light commercial vehicles a year. The Gloucester-based company expanded its fleet last year and now manages 4,300 vans and 700 cars nationwide.
Mears Group asset manager, Jo Hammonds, said: “The new Transit Connect’s fresh styling, greater load space, improved economy, emissions and whole-life costs are the factors which make it a very attractive prospect for us.”
The vans will be used by the company’s 16,000-strong workforce to provide response and planned maintenance services to local authorities and registered social landlords, delivering 6,000 repairs a day to a portfolio of nearly one million properties.
Mears is a long-established Ford customer, and among the first organisations to take delivery of the all-new Transit Connect.
