LEASYS UK CONTINUES TO GAIN YEAR-ON-YEAR GROWTH
- Leasys one of the fastest growing UK contract hire companies
- Leasys rises to 19th position in FN50 2018 ranking
- Fleet size now above 13,150 vehicles
Leasys, one of the fastest growing UK contract hire companies of 2018, has leaped to 19th position in the FN50 2018 list of the nation’s biggest and most successful contract hire & leasing companies. Just three years ago, it was in 31st place.
This year Leasys UK, the contract hire division of FCA Bank (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Bank) which represents the Fiat, Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Fiat Professional and Maserati brands, has seen rapid growth and continued success. It has grown by 30 per cent so far in 2018, taking its fleet size above the 13,150 vehicle mark for the first time in its history.
The continuous growth is due to the success of Leasys’ contract hire offers and the continued popularity of FCA products such as the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio, the Jeep Wrangler and Renegade, Abarth 595 and Fiat 500 and Fullback.
“The growth in the PCH segment, together with the introductions of great new models from our brands, are the key elements behind Leasys’ growth,” says Sebastiano Fedrigo, Managing Director Leasys UK. “2018 has been another successful year for the company where, together with increasing in fleet size, we have invested in strengthening our customer services and sales support functions.
“We have identified further potential growth in the LCV sector and SME market where we will expand our efforts going forward. We are also conscious that we need to leverage our working partnership with the retailers network where we need to gain reach to fully exploit the potential of our sales offering.
“In the long-term, we see our growth continuing by offering competitive, comprehensive and diversified mobility solutions through our retailer network. It would be fantastic to be inside the FN50 top 15 one day soon.”
