Bevan chooses Ryder for aftercare fleet

Bevan Group, the Halesowen-based bodybuilder, has taken on a fleet of 13 Mercedes Sprinter vans on contract hire from Ryder.

Aftercare manager Roy Shelton said: “We are now actively promoting our bodywork, tail-lift and hydraulics repair and maintenance services. From something that started purely by word of mouth, we now have a nationwide team of 20 service engineers and their numbers are growing all the time. Our skilled engineers are equipped to carry out cost-effective repairs on-site or at the roadside, thus reducing vehicle downtime.”

“Ryder is one of our biggest customers, both for new truck bodies, tail-lift repairs and maintenance for existing vehicles,” Shelton continued. “So it was natural to extend our working relationship by contracting them to supply our new service vans.”
