VAUXHALL Fleet has triumphed at the Northern Ireland UTV Business Eye Awards 2012. The Luton-based company was named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year at the awards, which are an integral part of the business calendar in Northern Ireland.
Vauxhall was praised for consistently offering the best range of fleet vehicles to the business sector based upon Benefit-in-Kind taxation, CO2 emissions, MPG figures, whole life costs and desirability. Vauxhall led the Northern Ireland market in September.
The judging panel included UTV’s business correspondent Jamie Delargy, Business Eye editor Richard Buckley, as well as the business editors of Northern Ireland’s two main morning newspapers, Gary McDonald (Irish News) and Adrienne McGill (News Letter). More than 400 people attended the award ceremony.
James Taylor, Vauxhall’s fleet sales director, told Business Vans: “We are absolutely delighted to be named Fleet Manufacturer of the Year at the UTV Business Eye Awards. Vauxhall understands the product requirements of its fleet customers and will continue in its commitment to delivering them to market.”
Vauxhall’s van sales have been boosted by a unique Lifetime Warranty for business van buyers that provides first owners with the reassurance of comprehensive cover for however long they own the vehicle. Vauxhall is also leading sponsor of the Northern Ireland football team.
