Nissan are celebrating their largest corporate LCV deal to date after Richard Irvin Services Group (RISG) ordered 275 vans.
The Scotland-based building services and engineering company have selected 220 NV200s and 55 Primastars for their new fleet, to be delivered in stages over the next 30 months.
RISG, who receive more than 60,000 customer calls each year, chartered the order to support their commercial and domestic maintenance and repairs team.
Each van will boast striking RISG livery, be kept for four years, and used to provide around-the-clock maintenance service for customers who require an on-call reactive service.
The NV200s will have roof racking fitted, with a roller bar plus internal racking for equipment and tools storage.
George Robb, Procurement Director at Richard Irvin Services Group, said: “We’re currently going through a period of investing in our people and capital and this deal marks an integral part of this strategy.
“We took a product rather than price led selection approach by making sure our drivers tested the vehicles first to ensure they were fit for purpose and we’re happy the feedback so far from the drivers has been so positive.”
RISG already run 24 NV200s and 10 Primastars, with field engineers reacting positively to their handling, performance and fuel economy.
The company prioritised reliability, comfort, safety and space economy when selecting their vehicle.
Barry Beeston, Corporate Sales Director at Nissan, said: “The NV200 and Primastar are ideal vans for any business requiring comfortable and reliable transport capable of covering large distances.
“We now look forward to supporting Richard Irvin Services Group over the coming months as more vans are delivered.”
