Following Micheldever Tyres Services (MTS) establishment of Micheldever Fleet Solution fleet tyre operation a year ago, the company has developed both the depth and scale of its fleet tyre offering. One example of the practical application of MFS’s offering can be found in Auto Windscreen fleet. Shaun Atton, Auto Windscreens’ Head of Fleet and Facilities. Atton, who manages Auto Windscreens’ 354-strong fleet of vehicles across 64 UK sites, shared how the fleet support services provided by MFS work to bring “peace of mind” to the business:
On 2 June, seasoned technicians Lloyd Cullen and Steve Abrahams were crowned Auto Windscreens’ first ever ‘Clearly the Best’ 2016 champions, both winning a coveted trip to compete at Auto Glass Week in the US (5-7 October).
Eight weeks to the day, Auto Windscreens (part of the Markerstudy Group of Companies) has today (1st October) confirmed that the deal to purchase AA AutoWindshields has completed. With no time to lose to ensure the full integration of 200 staff and technicians, this is cited as a phenomenally successful exercise in communication and collaboration by the Sunday Times Best Companies Top 100 listed organisation.
Auto Windscreens has acquired AA AutoWindshields, the AA’s automotive glazing business for an undisclosed sum.
The deal will see AA AutoWindshields’ Preston offices and its 200 staff and technicians integrated with Auto Windscreens and, under a 10-year partnership arrangement, the AA will continue to use Auto Windscreens to deliver glass repair and replacement services for AA members; its business-to-business and insurance customers.
Auto Windscreens has scooped the prestigious industry award for ‘Best Windscreen Provider’ in the 2015 BusinessCar Awards. The award winners were unveiled on 27 January 2015 and are considered to be unique as they represent the opinion of fleet operators and members of the industry and are a genuine reflection of the cars, products and services they feel benefit them the most.
