Ford Transit and Transit Connect vans have been selected by Greenshields JCB, who specialise in the distribution, service and repair of JCB and Thwaites dumper vehicles.
Seven short-wheel-base Ford Transit and four Ford Transit Connect vans have been delivered already and a further 17 medium-wheel-base and long-wheel-base, high roof Transits are due for delivery by the end of October.
In total, 32 new Ford vans have been ordered, adding to the existing fleet of 15 Ford vehicles previously purchased by the company. All vehicles have been supplied to Greenshields from Guildford-based Ford commercial vehicle dealer, Grays Truck & Van. The high-spec Transits are all fully sign-written, fitted-out and ready for the road.
Tom Greenshields, aftermarket director for Greenshields JCB, said: “I’m happy to announce our continued loyalty to Ford commercial vehicles. When we make comparisons with other brands we look for the products that are fit for purpose and the most reliable.
“There is also good parts availability and service support should the need arise. We believe Ford commercial vehicles are the industry standard, setting the benchmark which others attempt to follow.”
Stephen Powell, Ford of Britain fleet business manager, said: “This is an excellent partnership between ourselves and Greenshields JCB. With the introduction of four all-new Ford commercial vehicles over the next 18 months, it offers us even greater scope to cement our business relationship further in the years ahead.”
