Van mount manufacturer CPL has set up a partnership with Rivus Fleet Solutions for a service infrastructure network.
The agreement means all 55 garages in Rivus’s UK network will be equipped to provide in-life servicing, maintenance, repair and testing for any CPL product.
The garages will get CPL diagnostic and tooling equipment, along with full access to supply chains for parts – meaning any owners of CPL equipment will be able to use the Rivus network for both warranty and non-warranty work.
While Rivus technicians are already said to be experienced in working on such equipment, they will undergo comprehensive training and testing to provide CPL-standard levels of support.
CPL managing director Paul Murphy said: “CPL is only ten years old and we’ve grown significantly in that time to become one of the biggest players in the access market – so this agreement with Rivus represents a significant step as we look to grow further in the future and make our products more serviceable for our customers, wherever they are in the country.
“We know Rivus has the scale and infrastructure to support our customers and the volume of our equipment that’s in the field so this is great news for customers of both companies.”
Rivus business development director Simon Ungless said: “Businesses that run fleets not only want fast local access to facilities which support their base vehicles, but they also want the same standards for their ancillaries.
“We have long experience in supporting manufacturer warranties and a team of multi-skilled technicians at every site, with a vast experience on working on on-board equipment such as cherry-pickers.
“Through our national footprint, technical capability and capacity, we can provide users of CPL equipment with a highly-convenient service at industry-leading standards of quality.”
