UK water cooler service provider Angel Springs has invested in a new fleet of 44 eco-friendly and fuel efficient vehicles to meet increasing customer demand after a series of new business wins.
The company has taken delivery of 26 new Renault vans as well as 18 Isuzu trucks, which will be used by Angel Springs’ team of 71 drivers to service and deliver to around 49,000 water coolers.
The fleet expansion will further enhance Angel Springs’ existing service and delivery model, which operates on a local level from nine depots throughout the UK, including Wolverhampton, Fillongley, Gloucester, Halifax, Chiltern, Poole, Marden, Seaham and Glasgow.
The larger fleet will give Angel Springs further headroom to respond quickly and efficiently to new customer orders and maintenance demands, whilst maintaining the businesses reliable delivery of around 5000 bottles every day across the UK, which equates to around 100,000 litres of water.
The new eye catching fleet has been redesigned with a bright cerise front to ensure that the vans and trucks stand out against their competitors and to drive instant recognition of the Angel Springs brand. All of the new vehicles are equipped with the latest automotive technology, meaning that they not only consume less fuel but that they also produce far less exhaust gas emissions.
The company has a growing network of around 30,000 customers situated across the UK ranging from SMEs to multi-site blue chip organisations, including the BBC, Argos, Phones 4U and Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club. So far in 2012, Angel Springs has secured new business wins with Marriott Hotels, Liberty Guard and Securitas.
Commenting on the investment, John Murphy, commercial director at Angel Springs said: “We pride ourselves on delivering a truly local service on a national basis, which helps to ensure that our customers receive a consistently high standard of delivery, reliability and attention. By expanding our total fleet to 71 vehicles, we are not only increasing the efficiency and productivity of our existing service model, but we are also enhancing our green credentials by effectively reducing the overall mileage covered by our trucks and vans for each bottle that we deliver.
“2012 has brought further growth and new customers to our business and as such, our new fleet will play an important role in keeping our expanding customer base well hydrated.”
