Hexagon Leasing Partners With Bridgestone   

Hexagon Leasing has become one of Bridgestone’s biggest and most illustrious fleet partners, with more than 3,000 of its vehicles now being fitted with the company’s premium range of tyres. Hexagon is an award-winning, nationwide, contract hire, rental and fleet management provider. It manages accounts of all sizes from individuals through to large multinational logistics providers. Its value proposition is one of offering cost-effective solutions through strategic partnerships and after months of productive talks and tyre trials, Bridgestone was selected as the mobility solutions leader to take the business forward.

Hexagon were particularly impressed with the Bridgestone team’s attention to detail and consultative approach to the business, developing a range of tailored solutions to meet the needs of their own customers. The fleet will predominantly run on the Duravis R002 which offer outstanding wear performance and optimised fuel efficiency. Both Hexagon and its customers will also benefit from an agreed tyre pressure policy which will save not only the fleet money in terms of fuel but will also reduce the risk of costly breakdowns and improve on downtime targets.

Bridgestone’s National Fleet Executive Neil Collison, stated that they are thrilled to be able to work with such a forward-thinking company like Hexagon Leasing and demonstrate their value in a number of ways. He also stated that Hexagon Leasing is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious businesses that they've been fortunate enough to work with and looking forward to adding value in so many different ways. Bridgestone's premium products play a huge role in overall package, but being able to reduce cost of ownership through effective tyre maintenance and clear, concise reporting is also important. Bridgestone is delighted to have demonstrated this to the Hexagon Leasing team and now looking forward to strengthening their relationship over the coming months and years.
