David Thomson, Chief Executive of Close Brothers Invoice and Speciality Finance, shares an update on Close Brothers Vehicle Hire:
I am delighted to celebrate the success of Close Brothers Vehicle Hire so far this year. The business has supported a vast array of customers and continues to develop bespoke, innovative solutions to logistics challenges.
Our rental and contract hire options are an excellent proposition for many kinds of companies looking for a commercial vehicle or fleet. The right solution and support network can increase profitability and have a positive impact on company growth, facilitating the quick completion of jobs and boosting reputation.
Led by Managing Director Terry Ottey, who has over 40 years of experience in the industry, the vehicle hire team are industry experts and understand the importance of finding ‘the right solution’ for each business.
Finance, sales and operations are well supported by directors with specific expertise. For example, Sales Director, Richard Gosling, has spent more than 20 years in the Contract Hire Rental Industry and Commercial Director, Charles Starr, has focused for operational excellence for 30 years of his career. I firmly believe that the considerable expertise they share gives companies the strong foundation and confidence they need to unlock their potential.
This year, our business-focused products and services have helped multiple organisations thrive. We have helped new companies put additional vehicles on the road, enabling them to fulfil their contracts and contribute to the economy every single day.
It’s not only new business that we’re excited about though. I am especially pleased to see familiar companies continue to work with us and praise the reliable service they receive.
Our ability to provide bespoke vehicles and tailored customer service is something we pride ourselves on and it is key to our longstanding position as market leaders. We work closely with manufacturers to stay up to date with the latest technology, and demonstrate our commitment by sponsoring industry awards, such as Van of the Year at the Motor Transport Awards. Throughout periods of uncertainty, we remain committed to supporting our customers and can be relied upon to deliver contracts.
There is no better time to work with Close Brothers Vehicle Hire. The financial strength and security of the wider Close Brothers Group allows the vehicle hire business to remain completely independent from any manufacturer. Knowing the support of a FTSE250 business stands behind them, the team are able to offer an impartial, consistent and secure service to customers over both the long and short term.
Irrespective of what kind of business you run, you can trust Close Brothers Vehicle Hire to deliver vehicle solutions that will help you to thrive.
