Fleet Factors

It was November 1975 when Fleet Factors made its first sales visit to the Teesside repair depot of BP and we got our first order! The Shell depot was next door but it took us several weeks before they started to buy from us. With ICI, Preston's of Potto, British Steel and other local businesses Fleet Factors was founded and on its way.

We were very fortunate to have the support of key suppliers and with a small dedicated staff we quickly grew and consolidated the business in the Teesside area and opportunities came in 1980 to grow the business into Sunderland, 1985 into Tyneside and then in 1990 to Leeds.

As a family run business Fleet were always looking for innovative ways of supporting its exceptional service to customers. This approach to business continued with the introduction of custody stock in 1983 to Calor Gas and in 1990 with StoresManagement to blue chip companies and in 1995 a national support service for specialised components to bullion delivery vehicles.
