Factor chain GSF Car Parts has ordered 350 new vans to replace some of the older vehicles in its fleet in a deal valued at £3.5m

GSF has already taken delivery of 12 Peugeot Partner vans at its Birmingham head office but, during the course of 2017, will replace a total of 350 vehicles – representing some 60 percent of its UK fleet – across its nationwide network of 65 branches.

Following the takeover of the company by Hg-owned Parts Alliance in 2015, the management of the GSF fleet is being transferred into The Parts Alliance Group’s fleet team, under Steve Evans, Group Fleet Manager and Tony Shearer, Branch Operational Services Director.

“This is a major investment that will bring the GSF van fleet into line with our fleet policy for the rest of the group,” said Tony Shearer. “We generally work on a four to five year and 150,000 mile replacement cycle.”

The vehicles are being financed through fleet management firm Zenith and sourced though Robins and Day, a London dealer owned directly by Peugeot.
