News : Amberon Opts for FSGB's Out-of-hours Service
Paignton, UK, June 1, 2015 -- Nationwide traffic management company Amberon has appointed Fleet Service Great Britain (FSGB) to manage out-of-hours calls.
It has also launched a three-month maintenance management pilot, which it anticipates resulting in a fully-fledged contract.
Headquartered in Paignton, Devon, Amberon operates depots across England and Wales and offers coverage for key clients in Scotland, the Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Northern Ireland. It specialises in the provision of temporary traffic lights 24x7, 365 days a year with core clients being local authorities and utility companies. I
The fleet and out-of-hours calls were previously managed in-house by general manager Terry Musson. However, he explained that the rapid expansion of the fleet as a consequence of business growth meant the company wanted to "plug into" the knowledge and expertise of an external provider.
Allied to the appointment of a third party management company has been the recruitment of Jay Lanchbury as Amberon’s transport manager.
Musson said: "Growth of the fleet meant managing it became a full-time role rather than one aspect of my role. Therefore, we have recruited a full-time fleet manager and are also now using the expertise of FSGB."
