British Gas has signed up Kwik Fit to supply a range of tyre-related services across its 12,500-strong van fleet as the two firms resume their partnership.
The deal – one of Kwik Fit’s largest to an end-user fleet – covers tyre repair and replacement, tyre management, authorisation and invoicing and tyre safety checks.
Kwik Fit regained the sole supply deal after a 10-year partnership was interrupted three years ago, with its nationwide Mobile tyre fitting service proving critical to the contract win to ensure downtime is kept to a minimum.
Kwik Fit operates a 200-strong centrally-managed Mobile fleet and its ‘Mobile7’ operation, launched inside the M25 last year, has now been extended to cover other regions such as the West Midlands and North West.
Kwik Fit GB fleet sales director Andy Fern said: “British Gas operates a very high-profile and technical van fleet and the whole Kwik Fit team is proud to be serving the company again.
“Winning the new contract was a team effort and British Gas detected Kwik Fit’s hunger to win the contract during the negotiations. Now, following implementation, we will continue the momentum and deliver on our commitment to provide a first-class level of service and exceed key performance indicators laid down by a high-profile customer.”
