QIC Interiors Specialist, leading manufacturer of Interior aluminium Trims, Partitions, Blind Box and Bespoke sections has invested in its own fleet of commercial vehicles, as part of its ongoing commitment to customers.
The investment means that QIC will be able to help manage its own deliveries in-house from its dedicated transport division, located at Buckingham.
Matt Woollam, managing director at QIC, said: “Investing in our own fleet made sense both financially and logistically, as these new vehicles offer us greater flexibility and will help to reduce lead times. Operating our own vehicles means we have more control over scheduling the deliveries. Furthermore it will reduce the handling of our products, which will minimise the potential for damage and will improve customer satisfaction.”
QIC is also in the process of obtaining FORS (Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme) accreditation, a voluntary scheme which aims to raise the level of quality and standards maintained within fleet operations. It is awarded to operators that can demonstrate that they are achieving high standards of legal compliance, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
Matt adds: These new vehicles will help support the future growth of the business, as we’re experiencing strong demand for our products from the interior fit out sector.
This is further major investment that QIC has made in the business in the last two years, with the company having recently purchased new sheet metal manufacturing machinery for bespoke projects and increased production for their Partition Systems.
