Vehicle leasing company Fleet Alliance Group has increased the value of its managed fleet to more than £1 billion after a surge in demand for its services.

The Glasgow-based business now oversees 37,000 vehicles, up from 25,000 a year ago.

During the same period, the group, which includes Intelligent Car Leasing and Neva Consultants, has arranged funding worth £160 million for around 8,000 new cars in the SME and fleet market.

Its recent corporate fleet deals include the provision of 550 vehicles for Cox Automotive, owner of Manheim Auctions, across its 16 sites in the UK.

Martin Brown (pictured), managing director of Fleet Alliance, said: “Our team is resolutely focused on key business goals and building positive partnerships.”

In response to the rapid growth, Fleet Alliance Group will increase its workforce by 50% during the next 18 months and will expand its offices at its prestigious Skypark offices in the city.

Fleet Alliance was formed 17 years ago by Martin Brown and Allen and Marjory Flynn. It employs 100 people and has been named as the UK’s top vehicle leasing and fleet management company for customer service in the Experteye Awards in four out of the past five years.

It has also earned the Great Place to Work accolade, awarded by the Great Place to Work Institute, for seven consecutive years.

Since 2008, it has raised and donated more than £500,000 to local charities including Maggie’s Centres, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, Celtic FC Foundation and local foodbanks.
