Mazda Motors UK is looking to significantly expand its dealer-based contract hire scheme after forming a new partnership with ALD Automotive.
ALD Automotive, a leasing company with a fleet of more than 60,000 units, will provide a range of contract hire and personal contract leasing services supporting SME sales through Mazda’s 156-strong dealer network.
It will work with Mazda dealers and its four regionally-based business development managers to help franchises maximise local business opportunities in their respective areas.
It won a competitive tender, which marks the ending of a seven-year partnership between Mazda and Lex Autolease.
The new partnership kicks-off this month although Lex Autolease will continue to manage out all existing agreements with Mazda Contract Hire.
