Pendragon delivers bespoke conversion for Xylem Water Solutions

The company runs a fleet of Ford Transit 350s, Transit Customs and Transit Connects for use by its service and installation teams across the country. The vans needed bespoke conversion to enable safe transportation of equipment and tools, which was completed by Sortimo, based in Warrington.

The vehicles are being supplied by Pendragon Vehicle Management on contract hire agreements, supported by full repairs and maintenance, breakdown recovery, tyres and relief vehicles, supported by Pendragon’s management software and reporting tools.

Xylem is also taking advantage of the RED (Reduced End of Contract Damage Costs) service, which protects the customer from costly end of contract reconditioning charges.

Steve Bagguley, transport manager North at Xylem, said: “We required a bespoke fleet of vehicles for our needs, with a complex conversion to suit the materials we need to transport. Pendragon Vehicle Management was great at understanding what we needed and have delivered exactly what we were after. This is supported with excellent support and reporting facilities which help us keep a close eye on our fleet.”
