Business Connect recently met with Martin Shorrock, Group Fleet Manager, RRG Group at their base in Swinton, Manchester, to talk about the Leasing and Fleet side of their business:
Martin – tell us about RRG?
“RRG Group Fleet are the North’s premier supplier for Toyota Fleet vehicles. Our specialisms include complex conversions for demanding customers across multiple sectors, such as the MOD and a number of the region’s rapid response fire services (Cheshire, Lancashire and West Yorkshire to name a few).”
Are you sector specific?
“We cover all sectors and partner with all the major converters, but we have found a lot of take up in the Construction sector.
“We’re currently working with some fantastic businesses, including Siemens, United Utilities, O’Connor Plant Hire, A J Engineering Services. AJES are a great example of a converter with very specific needs, and we’re happily able to support those needs with our technical and customer-centric support.”
Are you just based in the North?
“We are based across the North West and West Yorkshire, employing a highly skilled and motivated team of 700 across 21 dealerships, 2 body shops and our fleet division. However, our customers are based all over the UK, and have grown with us since we started from humble beginnings in 1967 with a small garage in Manchester.”
What do you see as the reason behind your success?
“We take the stress out of the day to day issues of running a fleet, particularly allowing for bespoke solutions for customers with complex needs covering every aspect a converter would look for in placing and running a dedicated automotive fleet. We believe passionately in customer service and offering a smooth, seamless and professional service to our fleet customers that they can rely on 100%.”
