Teignbridge District Council enters 20th year with SFS 

2022 marks the 20th year that Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) has been vehicle partner to Teignbridge District Council and the council has recently decided to extend the current contract hire arrangement for another three years. 

SFS, which was awarded a third consecutive 7-year contract with Teignbridge in 2014 has been providing and maintaining the council’s fleet since 2002.

Chris Braines, Waste & Cleansing Manager, Teignbridge District Council: 

“We have extended the current contract with SFS whilst we review our strategy on low emission vehicles and decarbonisation of our fleet and workshops. SFS continues to replace and maintain vehicles in our fleet as required.  We continue to be impressed with the quality of service, levels of expertise and professional approach from SFS, and we look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship.”

Northampton-based fleet management company SFS was established nearly 30 years ago and is part of the Paragon Banking Group. It offers the complete range of vehicle hire and fleet management services to both the public and private sector, including contract hire, short term vehicle hire, vehicle maintenance, workshop management, technical advice, and consultancy.

“We have been working with Teignbridge District Council since 2002 and we have provided over 200 vehicles to date.  Our priority is to create long-term relationships and we are delighted to have retained Teignbridge for nearly 20 years.  As experts in alternative fuel vehicles, we are also able to provide guidance on the adoption of low emissions vehicles to help combat climate change.”
