Vauxhall secures 55-van order with Banham Group
- Created: 17 December 2015
Vauxhall have secured a 55-van order comprised of Vivaro and Combo vehicles with Banham Group, one of Britain's longest serving security providers.
Established in 1926 when William F. Banham invented the first automatic door lock, Banham Group is a family-owned business that is the largest supplier of security systems in London and the South East.
With a fleet of approximately 200 vehicles of which 70 per cent are Vauxhall vehicles (including Vauxhall Corsa, Astra and Insignia cars alongside Astravan and Vivaro vans), the Banham Group are moving towards a 100 per cent Vauxhall branded fleet as part of their four-year replacement cycle.
Managing director William Banham has said, "Vauxhall has been extremely proactive in supporting us and its fleet set-up is very impressive. It is important to us that our fleet fully represents our company values to the thousands who see it on a daily basis on the roads and therefore it seemed only natural to use the UK’s oldest and most iconic automotive brand."
Banham's new Vauxhall Vivaro L1H1 1.6 CDTi with 115PS and Combo L1H1 1.6 CDTi delivering 105PS vans have been supplied with rear parking sensors and Bluetooth - plus they have been decked out in black with gold signwriting, matching Banham’s well-known branding.
Robert Patching of GO Vauxhall Fleet Sales has commented on the new deal stating, "We are proud to work with British businesses like Banham to support them with all their fleet needs, from cars to vans and see our relationships as more than simply supplying vehicles. We work hard to provide all our customers with the assistance they need, from training to fleet servicing."
