- Škoda UK secures place on the Crown Commercial Service framework
- Škoda expects to deliver 6,000 cars to the UK public sector during four-year partnership
- A proud tradition of supporting the emergency services that dates back to 1906
Milton Keynes, 30 January 2023 – Škoda UK has been awarded a place on the government’s new Framework agreement, following a successful tender with the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
The CCS is the largest public sector procurement organisation in the UK and procures £22.7 billion of goods and services every year. Škoda has secured a place on the new vehicle purchase framework, which is available for use by public sector bodies in key sectors such as central government, health and local government as well as the UK emergency services.
Škoda has a proud tradition of supporting the emergency services that dates back more than 117 years. From the groundbreaking Voiturette Ambulance of 1906 to today’s high quality fleet of Police, Ambulance, and Fire and Rescue services models, Škoda has long been the brand of choice for emergency services across Europe.
Škoda UK’s emergency services sales have increased 40% since 2018. The brand expects to deliver around 6,000 + cars to government bodies under the new agreement thanks to its reliability, value and aftersales service.
Nick O’Neill, Škoda Head of Direct Sales, said: “There is a focus for frontline public services to drive efficiencies for both time and cost. We have worked effectively with government bodies over the past decade to ensure that we meet their requirements and provide a reliable service. I look forward to continuing this partnership over the next four years.”
Bespoke conversions for emergency service fleets can be provided through Škoda’s ‘one-stop’ shop package. Alongside hassle-free finance solutions, Škoda fleet can provide the vehicles fully converted to suit specific requirements, and fleet managers have the peace of mind that the conversion, breakdown recovery, service, maintenance and repair requirements are built into one package.
