FMG WINS FLEET ACCIDENT MANAGEMENT CONTRACT FOR DYNO-ROD AND PH JONES
14 February 2014
FMG has won a 5 year contract to provide fleet management services for two British Gas businesses, PH Jones and Dyno-Rod. The contracts will provide vehicle repair management and driver development services for PH Jones vehicles, the providers of servicing and repairs for social housing and Dyno-Rod vehicles, the UK’s leading plumbing and drains business.
FMG offers a comprehensive range of fleet optimisation services, and has worked with major businesses from a variety of sectors. Risk management and reduction tactics are designed to improve processes, educate drivers and minimise the impacts incidents have on business. This can be achieved through tactics such as fleet auditing, educational programmes, telemetry, driver license checking and online training, amongst others. FMG has provided comprehensive fleet management services for some of the UK’s biggest fleets, and will bring its expertise from 25 years of operation, to Dyno-Rod and PH Jones.
Colin Marriott, Fleet Manager, British Gas said: “FMG has impressed us with their approach demonstrating flexibility when implementing these contracts in a short timeframe. Their driver development portal is one of the best examples I’ve seen and the services have already started to demonstrate results.”
John Catling, CEO of FMG said: “We’re delighted to be working with well-respected businesses, PH Jones and Dyno-Rod. By understanding these businesses, sectors and their drivers, we’ve been able to put together a bespoke solution to mitigate risk and reduce cost. Our incident management services have been employed by the UK’s biggest fleets in recent years, and we have also been entrusted with the Highways Agency National Vehicle Recovery Manager Contract since 2008. We work hard to understand a business, before recommending a solution. There are no ‘off the shelf’ answers, it’s about understanding a company and diversities, and then recommending a package that will deliver results.”
FMG has developed an award winning proposition, aimed at preventing accidents, rather than simply clearing up after them. This approach, which can save time, money and hassle, was a major factor in the awarding of these contracts.
