1 May 2014
FMG has been re-awarded a significant contract to provide services for more than 2,000 vehicles belonging to SIG plc. The deal, which will see the continuation of an already successful long-term partnership, for up to three years, is the latest in a long line of contract extensions recently secured by FMG.
FTSE 250 listed SIG plc has appointed FMG to the nationwide contract, which will cover incident management, roadside assistance, third party data-capture and uninsured loss recovery. The contract will cover 2,159 vehicles, which include cars, vans and light commercial vehicles.
Tommy Duncombe, Logistics Administration Manager of SIG plc said: “Fleet activities can represent a major cost to businesses and through our relationship with FMG, we’ve been able to control these costs and make significant improvements to how we report and manage claims. We’re delighted to have extended our successful partnership, which will allow for further improvements to our service levels and making sure that our vehicles are on the road, providing the great service that our customers expect.”
Harvey Stead of FMG said: “The renewal of this contract is further endorsement of the partnership we’ve worked together on for the past two decades. SIG plc provide critical services for their customers, and making sure that their vehicles are back on the road as quickly as possible following an incident is a clear way we can help to reduce cost and increase efficiency. This is the latest in a long line of contract renewals we’ve secured over the past twelve months, which shows the trust and value placed in us by our partners.”
