Volkswagen seals Yorkshire vehicle supply deal
01 May 2014
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is set to supply 360 light vans and pick-ups to the Wakefield and District Housing Association between now and the end of the year.
The vehicles will be used by property maintenance staff, including ground staff, plumbers, builders and electricians.
"Working closely with the fleet team at Volkswagen has meant that we have been able to identify the exact models we required along with the specific extras each vehicle needed," said Rick Young, the association's fleet manager.
Light commercials purchased included Caddy and Caddy Maxi vans, short and long-wheelbase Transporters and larger Crafter models, including specially converted dropside pick-ups.
Delivery of the first 119 vehicles runs from July to September, with the a further 126 arriving between September and the end of 2013.
