2022 marks the 20th year that Specialist Fleet Services (SFS) has been the fleet provider to Teignbridge District Council. The council has recently decided to extend the current contract hire arrangement for another three years.
Teignbridge awarded a third consecutive seven-year contract to SFS in 2014, and the company has been providing and maintaining the council’s fleet since 2002.
Chris Braines, Waste & Cleansing Manager, Teignbridge District Council, commented: ‘We have extended the existing contract with SFS while reviewing our strategy on low emission vehicles and decarbonising our fleet and workshops. SFS continues to replace and maintain vehicles in our fleet as required. We continue to be impressed with the quality of service, levels of expertise and professional approach from SFS, and we look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship.’
Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, SFS, said: ‘We have been working with Teignbridge District Council since 2002, and we have provided over 200 vehicles to date. Our priority is to create long-term relationships, and we are delighted to have retained Teignbridge for nearly 20 years. As experts in alternative fuel vehicles, we can also guide adopting low emissions vehicles to help combat climate change.’
