autoXP has entered into a new agreement with Toyota GB for the running of its press garage operations
Under the agreement, autoXP has taken on management of the facilities, fleet and team based in Crawley, using its proprietary, innovative technology platforms to further enhance the performance of what is already a class-leading operation.
The press facilities house both current Toyota and Lexus vehicles and the Toyota heritage fleet.
The media enquiry and vehicle booking service will continue to operate through the Toyota and Lexus press office at Toyota GB’s headquarters in Epsom, Surrey, co-ordinated by Graham Bothamley, the new Press Fleet Manager.
Scott Brownlee, Toyota GB General Manager, Press Relations and Social Media, said: “the press fleet is our best calling card. It is the busiest part of our PR department, organising around 1,200 vehicle loans to the UK media each year, all prepared to the highest standard. We want to develop our established operation and autoXP shares that vision. Although a stand-alone operation in Sussex, the operation will provide a testbed and benchmark for the wider operation.”
Oliver Woodmansee, autoXP Managing Director, commented: “The whole team at autoXP are delighted to be working with Toyota on this exciting project. It is highly strategic for us to enter into this agreement at this time, as we have been making significant investment in our proprietary IT platforms with a view to further expanding our offering. This agreement sees Toyota taking the majority of the autoXP offering, from Press, Corporate Demonstrations and Dealer Based Rental. We are confident this new agreement will yield significant benefits for users of the press fleet.”
