Vauxhall have supplied over 20,000 vehicles to BT over the years
Vauxhall has supplied multinational telecommunications company British Telecoms with a fleet of 2,500 Vivaros and 330 Corsavans, both of which will be used by its engineers nationwide.
Ensuring the Vivaro L1H1 2900 90PS vans are fit-for-purpose, a number of BT engineers were consulted by Vauxhall on how the racking in the back of the vans could be arranged for maximum efficiency.
As part of their engagement in this landmark fleet deal, the BT engineers were able to visit Vauxhall’s Luton Plant to see the Vivaro being made, and the plant also organised for the group to see the 500th van from their order.
“It’s important that our engineers are driving the right van for them,” said Mike Langford, BT Fleet Senior Customer Relationship Manager. “Our vehicles need to be future-proof, reliable and user friendly, making the engineers who drive them the obvious people to help specify the vans.”
Richard Collier, National Commercial Vehicle and B2B Sales Manager, added: “We are delighted that BT has chosen Vauxhall to meet its medium van requirements. Vivaro offers outstanding practicality, economy and load-lugging capability, so I’m sure BT will be very pleased with its new fleet of Vauxhalls.”
