LONDON – Oct 8, 2013: Nissan has agreed a four-year deal to provide commercial vehicles to Bridgestone, the world’s largest tyre company. The deal comes off the back of a large contract win by Bridgestone with Ulsterbus, the Northern Irish public transport operator.

The initial order comprises seven Nissan NV200 vans that will be used across the entirety of Northern Ireland. Each van, driven by trained Bridgestone tyre technicians, contains state-of-the-art equipment that will allow them to conduct portable tyre inspections on Ulsterbus buses from any remote location.

Technicians will also be moving tyres and fitting equipment to the Ulsterbus fleet using their vans as mobile service units. Each Bridgestone-liveried Nissan NV200 is expected to cover 20,000 miles a year and will be fitted with internal plylining to increase its durability.

Feedback from Bridgestone drivers has already been positive with the NV200 praised for its spacious load capacity and driver comfort over long distances.

Nichola Randall, Bridgestone fleet manager said: “The initial driver response to the new vans has been great. With a combination of strong and reliable performance and generous storage space, our technicians will be able to deliver an efficient and high quality service to Ulsterbus across the country.”

Barry Beeston, Nissan corporate sales director said: “These vans will be covering a lot of miles across Northern Ireland making the NV200 the ideal van for any business requiring comfortable and reliable transport. We now look forward to supporting Bridgestone over the years to come as their contract business continues to grow.”
