Spark New Zealand : Hewer FM choose Vivaro to drive business forward New reg 65

08/21/2015 | 05:24pm US/Eastern

One of the region's leading services installation and maintenance providers, Hewer FM, have taken delivery of a fleet of New Vauxhall Vivaro vans from local dealers Baylis.

Over the past 50 years Gloucester-based Hewer have developed from a one-man-band into a thriving business employing more than 120 staff.

They specialise in plumbing, heating, mechanical and electrical installation, service and maintenance projects as well as offering renewable energy solutions to domestic, commercial and industrial clients across the south west region.

With the lease of their existing vehicles coming to an end, and the business expanding by 65 per cent over the past three years, Hewer FM needed to upgrade their 83-strong vehicle fleet.

"With the continuing success of the business and in particular our Failsafeplan boiler and heating system care plan, we needed a fleet of vehicles capable of coping with demands of round the clock cover - so upgrading it was a priority," said Hewer FM's director of finance Ian Leitch.

"To begin with our senior engineers trialled a number of different demo vehicles and then reported back to the board.

"We then reviewed the efficiency and cost benefits of each option, ultimately settling upon the Vivaro to replace our larger vehicles."

Hewer went on to order 26 Vauxhall Vivaro 1.6 CDTi Bi-Turbo Sportive vans. Marc James, commercial vehicle specialist at Baylis, commented: "Fol-lowing their staff's recommendations, I discussed the Vivaro with Ian, and he was impressed with the build quality and reliability, as well as the fuel efficiency and trim levels of the Sportive, which includes a built-in sat nav."

Ian was delighted to work with a local Gloucestershire-based business. He added: "It was mainly the local partnership that we wished to develop with Baylis, who we believe deliver the quality of service required for a company with a busy engineering workforce such as ours." The vehicles will all be serviced and maintained at Baylis' commercial centre in Cole Avenue, just down the road from Hewer's own headquarters, giving the peace of mind of knowing that support for the new fleet is always on hand when needed. Baylis is one of the leading locally managed motor groups, employing over 260 staff at its seven branches throughout the Three Counties.
