About the employer

Founded upon Teesside in November 1975, Fleet Factors started out by making it's first sales visit to BP, and then to other high profile companies such as ICI, and British Steel shortly after. Our small dedicated staff and support from key suppliers allowed us to branch out to Sunderland, Tyneside and Leeds all by 1990. As a family run business Fleet were always looking for more ways of supporting its exceptional service to customers, this took a huge step forwards when we first started implementing our Stores Management service to blue chip companies, councils and public services. Essentially we assist or run the body shop for the business allowing them to focus on their own priorities. We now have our own in house IT team designed to assist partner businesses. We've very recently launched Social Media accounts and a brand new website tailored to serve both the consumer as well as run seamlessly with our Stores Management system. Fleet Factors are the founding members of UPD www.upd.co.uk corporation. This incorporates other independent distributors across the UK so that national group deals can be offered to the fleets and franchise dealers ensuring national benefits coupled with local family business service and support. Fleet now have over 300 employees in 28 branches with over 100 Stores Management sites nationwide. We supply truck & trailer parts, car & van parts, lubricants and consumables along with refinish products from a range of suppliers and OE brands being delivered to our national customer base through our trusted fleet. The passion and commitment of our management and staff enables us to produce a secure, pleasurable and successful future. Fleet Factors are responsible for the livelihood of many people and that responsibility is taken with pleasure and confidence. Our staff deserves the credit for the companies accreditation's of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 for their dedication to the business and customers.
