Cura Technical's new green fleet

Basildon-based technical support solutions company Cura Technical is celebrating further growth with a new fleet of vehicles. The company has taken delivery of seventeen new vehicles to enhance its existing fleet stock, and improve on its carbon footprint by reducing Co2 emissions and increasing fuel efficiency.

ALD handled the financing for the contract while approved Vauxhall & Peugeot dealers Robin Day in Bristol and York and Ward & Rowlatt of Wellingborough supplied the vehicles. As part of its deal, Cura will enjoy many upgraded extras as standard including satellite navigation, real time tracking and ‘blue efficiency’ technology.

Commenting on the investment, Jason Williams, managing director at Cura, said: “Our national fleet of engineers and sales personnel spend a great deal of time travelling from contract to contract so they need company cars that are reliable, fuel-efficient and client-facing. This substantial initial investment will pay dividends as we are forecasting to reduce our fuel costs by some 8% and our Fleet Co2 emissions by some 16%.”

“As a company we continually strive to reduce our carbon footprint, so we need vehicles with low CO2 emissions. Load carrying capacity is also a major factor of importance as is cost and the new fleet meets all these requirements. This purchase confirms Cura’s commitment to attain the ISO 14001 environmental accreditation."

ALD Account Manager Chris Taylor said: “Cura has made an educated choice on its fleet hire with the choice of vehicles and specification. It was a process that was carefully evaluated, making sure that the correct vehicles were chosen for the exact needs of the business. When evaluating their previous set of vehicles, we realised that we could reduce costs, improve the vehicle uptime, and also reduce CO2 emissions by just replacing them with vehicles that have the latest technology and engine efficiencies.”
