Ford dealers are being encouraged to target SMEs with a new Business Week event being promoted by the manufacturer.
Running from June 2 to 10, the national sales event will see the UK’s largest dealership network prime its business specialists to target drivers working for small and medium-sized enterprises.
Ford fleet director, Owen Gregory, said: “Ford plays a key role in keeping Britain moving thanks to the volumes of its cars and vans driven by businesses. SMEs are a huge part of the economic engine that is GB PLC.
“Their turnover represents almost half that of the private sector, but still we hear that SMEs find suppliers and lenders hard to work with.
“As their car and van supplier, also offering finance from Ford Lease, we are making ourselves expressly available for local businesses during Ford Business Week.”
Ford said in a stamen that it expects the hybrid Ford Mondeo to be the star of Business Week as its real-world fuel consumption has been verified at 52mpg by Nextgreencar.com.
During Business Week, Ford Lease business contract hire will include free service and maintenance for select cars and vans for up to three years/20,000 miles.
