Asset Alliance places £35m order with City West Commercials

Asset Alliance

Asset Alliance is expanding its vehicle stock with a £35m order of more than 430 Mercedes-Benz trucks from City West Commercials.

All of the new vehicles are Actros models - a mix of tractor units and rigids including reefers - and 80 are already with customers. The rest will be delivered throughout 2018. 

The Wolverhampton-based independent finance and leasing specialist has depots in Ringwood, Hampshire and Newmains in Scotland. It uses its own funds to provide a wide range of multi-brand commercial vehicles to customers across the UK, offering contract hire, finance, rental and leasing.

MD of Asset Alliance, Dave Potter, said “We have worked closely with City West Commercials to make this happen and it has been a very successful experience. It has been a huge investment for us, and also one of the largest orders in any one year for City West.”

Paul Ridout, City West Commercials truck sales director, added: “The latest order demonstrates a real commitment to high quality service and for such a young company in the market, it’s clear to see that the team has a real dedication to providing an excellent vehicle leasing experience for its customers.”
