VW supplies UK’s public sector, police and EMS
Heading off to Britain sometime soon? Then be sure to be on your best behaviour, as the country has a new fleet of public sector, police and emergency services vehicles from the Volkswagen Group United Kingdom (UK).
The group has secured a three-year contract under the new Crown Commercial Services (CCS) vehicle supply framework agreement, which took effect in December 2014. The first orders under the new framework were taken just before Christmas.
Of 12 manufacturers who submitted tenders for commercial vehicle approval, five were awarded contracts, including Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
For passenger cars, 12 out of 18 tendering manufacturers were approved; four of which were Volkswagen Group brands.
“We’re delighted to have been appointed under the framework, and are committed to ensuring our vehicles and our people provide these important new customers with the service and back-up they need and deserve,” says VW Group UK technical sales manager, Steve Cowell.
