National transport logistics firm Clancy Plant has renewed a fleet deal with Skoda.
The new contract means that Skoda will supply a further 20 vehicles to the fleet by the end of the year, having already delivered 11 vehicles in 2017.
The new vehicles will consist of a mix of the Octavia hatchback, Rapid Spaceback and Superb models.
Skoda claimed that it currently provides nearly a fifth of Clancy Plant's 400-strong fleet.
Clancy Plant said it chose Skoda thanks to the low P11D values attributed to the company's model range and competitive whole-life costs compared with its rivals.
David Janes, head of sales and corporate accounts at Clancy Plant, said: "We have a long-standing relationship with Skoda that has stretched almost a decade. With such a large workforce, we need a fleet that we can rely on and the comfort of knowing that support is on hand when needed - and that is what Skoda has consistently delivered for us."
"Feedback from our drivers about what they are driving and any problems that arise is extremely important, and one of the main reasons that we keep coming back to Skoda is the positive response to the cars. They perform extremely well and our driver's running costs are kept low," he added. "We are currently test-driving the new Kodiaq, and it certainly measures up in terms of performance and practicality. I can see it being an attractive option for our senior team in the future."
Henry Williams, head of fleet at Skoda UK, said: "It has been a pleasure working with Clancy Plant over the years, and I am glad that our cars continue to be a strong draw for the company. The vastness and variety of the fleet that they run presents an exciting challenge for us to provide the best mix of models that combine a desirable drive and affordable option for drivers. I look forward to many more years working together."
