Servicing chain Kwik Fit has extended its sole-supply contract with Alphabet by three years.
The deal includes tyres, but also other services such as brake replacements, MOTs and tyre management.
Following a competitive tender, Kwik Fit retained the contract across Alphabet's fleet of almost 140,000 company cars and vans. Integral to its win was the company's collaborative approach. Later this year, Kwik Fit will launch a new technology platform for its range of mobile services.
Kwik Fit GB fleet sales director Andy Fern said: "Technology and vehicles are changing rapidly in terms of powertrains and the production line fitment of model-specific original equipment tyres. Alphabet recognises that the speed of transition will increase over the coming years and that it requires a partner to work with on what is a challenging journey.
Clive Buhagiar, head of operational services at Alphabet, said: "We've been impressed with the attitude and ability of the Kwik Fit team, as well as the quality of the service they deliver to Alphabet customers on our behalf. Kwik Fit has demonstrated an approach to ongoing innovation which has been applied to the needs of our business and the demands of customers, directly benefitting their everyday experience.
