The VW Crafter, Caddy and Transporter vans will support GB Electrical’s service to the armed forces.

The family-owned business, which specialises in electrical installation and repair work, has taken delivery of a mix of Crafter, Caddy and Transporter vans for its contract win with CarillionAmey, which works together with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to maintain Service family accommodation for the Armed Forces. The contract has recently been revised to include additional areas in the UK.

Matthew Edwards from GB Electrical commented: “The additional contract we entered into with CarillionAmey and the MOD required stock vehicles promptly and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles vans were the perfect choice. We were very impressed with the company’s aftersales care and were confident that their products would adequately complement the delivery of reliable and efficient services to the Service families.”

GB Electrical also installs electric vehicle charging points across the country and the vans will also be used for its work here, with racking installed to maximise internal space to transport equipment.
