Craigavon-based Global Home Warranties has doubled both its number of employees and its workload in the UK and Ireland.
The company, which provides 10 year Structural and Latent Defect Insurance for new build projects, recently opened a new office in the Republic of Ireland to cater to significant demand.
As a result of this rapid growth, Global Home Warranties has also invested in expanding its fleet bringing its total number of vehicles across the UK and Ireland to ten.
Since its establishment in 2011, the firm has partnered with Donnelly Fleet for all its fleet requirements.
Kathy McKenna, Director at Global Home Warranties, said: “We have surveyors based both here and across the water, all of whom can be on the road for the majority of the day. It’s therefore really important that we have efficient, reliable vehicles.
“In light of our recent expansion, we decided it was time to also expand our fleet. Having successfully partnered with Donnelly Fleet since our inception in 2011, we contacted the Fleet team straightaway. The team’s extensive knowledge is second to none so our choice was narrowed down to several suitable vehicles which we took test drives in.
“For us, it was the Volkswagen Caddy that ticked all the boxes. It’s durable, economic and spacious enough for ladders and other such equipment required by our surveyors. Black Caddy models can be hard to come by but the team had that sorted in no time and now the branded vehicles are on the road.
“We purchased seven new vehicles this time, most of which are Caddy models but two are hatchback vehicles for our sales staff. Donnelly Fleet is always very accommodating; the team’s friendliness and ability to deliver superior aftersales care is really important to a small business like ours.
“With Donnelly Fleet we are provided with a replacement vehicle when required meaning our fleet is never off the road and is always fully functional. Now catering to greater demand across a larger area, this reliability is key as we seek to further grow our business.”
Specialising in sourcing, funding and managing any make or model of vehicle, Donnelly Fleet, previously known as Donnelly Finance and Leasing, services can be availed of at all eight Donnelly Group locations across the province.
Tony Magee, dedicated Sales Manager for Global Home Warranties and General Manager for Donnelly Fleet, added: “Seven years ago Global Home Warranties became my first contract hire customer and it has been great to see Kathy and the team go from strength to strength.
“From the start, Kathy appreciated our honesty and our ability to understand the needs and requirements of the business. We pride ourselves on delivering first class service as well as cost-effective vehicle solutions to keep our customers on the road, and within budget.
“Each business is unique and has its own budget and vehicle requirements. Our knowledgeable experts are trained to deliver detailed information to allow each customer to make an informed decision regarding their fleet. “It’s wonderful to see a local company such as Global Home Warranties enjoy such success and we wish Kathy and the team luck for the future.”
