Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Services has won a deal with Connaught Environmental to provide 41 specialist vehicles worth over £2m (€2.4m) in total.
Connaught Environmental, part of Connaught plc, which operates in the UK social housing and public sector markets, will use the vehicles to carry out work with local authority street cleaning depots in Wandsworth, Mendip, Norwich and the Isle of Wight.
Hitachi Capital will provide the funding for the new specialist fleet, which includes road sweepers, cage tippers of various sizes, 7.5-tonne refuse collection vehicles, gully emptiers to clean gutters and a timber recycler.
Additionally, the fleet supplier will provide a range of fleet management services including maintenance, compliance and risk management.

“Now we’ve started to deliver the vehicles, we’ll ensure they are maintained and inspected regularly to be fully compliant with UK and EU legislation, allowing the company to focus their efforts on supporting local authorities.”
