MOTOR dealer Benfield has signed a three-year deal to supply and manage a new fleet of 60 vehicles for an environmental company.

Benfield Contract Motoring agreed the deal with Gateshead business Lucion Environmental, which specialises in hazard management for the built and marine environments. It will now be using a fleet of Volkswagen vehicles supplied by Benfield to transport its surveyors.

The deal will take the form of a sale and lease back of 40 vehicles, accompanied with full outsourcing of fleet management.

Lucion’s Charles Pickles said: “Our business is changing rapidly, and we are regularly presented with acquisition opportunities. The sale and leaseback has released capital to reinvest in our core business, while utilising Benfield Contract Motoring’s expertise has freed up more than 10% of my time so I can focus on what we do best.”

Carl Moffett, general manager of Benfield Contract Motoring, said: “We worked very closely with Lucion to understand their business needs and to deliver added value to their business. We are a local business with a very experienced team, which means we can comprehensively assess customer needs and offer flexible solutions. We see this as a great opportunity to work closely with such a successful local business.”
