Rental company Enterprise is recruiting more than 100 new technicians and has significantly expanded its technician training programme in a move designed to boost its commercial vehicle repair and maintenance capability.

It is said to be part of the Enterprise Flex-E-Rent division’s efforts to increase the number of mechanics working at its 28 depots around the UK.

The company’s training programme is now said to provides bespoke career planning and training for every technician, which includes between 3,500 and 4,000 training hours every month.

This is said to enable them to track their career path as they develop their expertise across Enterprise Flex E-Rent’s complete range of vans, trucks, refrigerated vehicles and specialist vehicles – and now its fast-growing fleet of electric vans.

As well as increasing its technician workforce, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent has invested more than £1 million in diagnostic and workshop equipment across its depots over the past couple of years, and is now certified to handle warranty repairs for Ford and Mercedes commercial vehicles.

It says it has seen recent average vehicle off-road times (VOR) for Enterprise Flex-E-Rent vehicles at its in-house workshop network fall to around two-thirds of VOR seen for its vehicles in OEM and dealership repair facilities.

Enterprise Flex-E-Rent group service maintenance and repair manager James Walker said: “Our goal is to build an exceptional technical and maintenance resource internally to provide our customers with lower off-road times and help businesses get their vehicles back as soon as possible.”
