SFS appoint JCT600 VLS on sole supply basis

SFS Group Fastening Technology based in Leeds has signed a new sole supply contract with JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, to provide fully outsourced contract hire services for its fleet.

SFS is a worldwide leading manufacturer of mechanical fastening systems for the construction industry.

JCT600 VLS has worked successfully with SFS UK Market Region since 2012, but as part of best business practice, the fleet operation underwent a substantial market benchmarking process in 2018.

“JCT600 VLS’ commercial offering, service levels, personal approach and their ability to put forward a choice list that not only met our criteria but significantly improved upon it; made them the clear choice for our business and our drivers,” said David Wigglesworth, Managing Director at SFS Group Fastening Technology.

The contract was awarded for three and a half years and incorporates the full suite of VLS services including but not limited to online quoting, maintenance, licence checking and accident management.

Ben Creswick, Commercial Director at JCT600 VLS, said: “We’re very proud to be continuing our relationship with SFS and their drivers. Retendering for an existing customer is always a double edged sword, so we knew we had to be at the top of our game. This contract demonstrates that our business continues to deliver to the highest standards.”

JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions – established in 1988 – is one of the only truly independent and family owned providers of UK wide vehicle mobility solutions. They operate a fleet of 6,500 vehicles supplying all brands of cars and vans throughout the UK from their head office – Tordoff House, Apperley Bridge.
