Allied Fleet exhibited for the first time at the APSE Fleet, Waste and Grounds conference in Aviemore. The event is the largest Scottish trade exhibition of its kind with over 100 exhibitors alongside a programme of expert speakers and seminars.
With the sun shining for the duration of the two day event, it was a huge success for Allied Fleet. Held at the Hilton Coylumbridge, it was the perfect place to showcase our welfare vehicle, Crewser™, and the all-new FlexiLite™ minibus.
“It was great to get feedback from customers in the market for these types of vehicles.”
Crewser™ Welfare Vehicle
With delegates from local councils, facilities and waste management companies, Crewser™ was a real talking point at APSE. It’s the perfect mobile staffroom solution and a highly cost-effective alternative to fixed on-site portacabins. Spacious and robust, it can transport up to eight workers, with table seating for four at a time. It comes equipped with a toilet, drying room, kitchen area, including microwave and plenty of lockable storage space, as well as essential hot water and heating.
This brand new addition, which debuted at the show, offers superb flexibility. The FlexiLite™ lightweight minibus uses innovative, lightweight materials to provide an ideal solution for organisations looking for maximum carrying capacity without having to incur the expense of putting staff through D1 category licence training. It’s a safety tested, road-ready minibus, with room for up to seventeen people and up to four wheelchairs, that can be driven by anyone with a standard car licence.
Allied Fleet sales manager, Colin McQueen, commented: “The 2017 APSE Fleet, Waste and Grounds conference was a real success for Allied Fleet and gave us a chance to showcase our brand-new lightweight minibus and welfare vehicle.
“It was great to get feedback from customers in the market for these types of vehicles. The Crewser was well received thanks to its innovative features and the Flexilite minibus also attracted attention due to the fact it can carry up to 17 people and can be driven on a normal licence. Both of these products are a great addition to our range of special purpose vehicles.”
