Michelin is now supplying tyres for BNP Paribas Rental Solutions’ UK fleet, as part of a new agreement.
Michelin Wins BNP Paribas Contract
The deal sees Michelin’s Services & Solutions division supplying all tyres on a fully managed basis across a nationwide fleet of specialist mission-critical vehicles – each with individual policies tailored to meet the needs of BNP Paribas Rental Solutions’ customers.
Benoit Laflamme, Head of BNP Paribas Rental Solutions UK, says: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership offering quality and professionalism that will ensure delivery of first-class service to our customers.
“It’s not a one-size-fits-all policy; Michelin is using the full extent of its tyre range to cater for our varied customer base, which operate everything from specialist vans to HGVs, including fuel tankers, cranes, car transporters, refuse collection vehicles and refrigerated trucks on intensive multi-drop work.”
The partnership has already hit the ground running, with BNP Paribas Rental Solutions supporting fleets in the fuel, builder’s merchants, traffic control, distribution, healthcare, fuel and waste sectors that have helped keep the nation on its feet during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Delivering maximum fleet uptime is one of our key value pillars and we pride ourselves on delivering a fast, efficient, market-leading service,” says Ged Mellish, Head of Operations, BNP Paribas Rental Solutions.
Andrew French, Michelin’s Director of Services & Solutions for the UK, Ireland and Nordics, says: “We have a track record for delivering customer-centric solutions backed by high-technology products, alongside quality customer service, and this reputation was key to winning this significant new contract.
“The team at BNP Paribas Rental Solutions were clear from the outset that they wanted a tyre management solution where the focus was on sustainable mobility, enhancing their green credentials, and that’s precisely what we’ve been able to deliver. It reinforces the shared values of both companies and it will allow us to partner on a number of different levels going forward.”
