Craggs Energy has appointed KeyFleet to manage its company and staff vehicles as part of a three-year agreement.
National fuel, infrastructure and green energy supplier The Craggs Energy Group has joined the award-winning KeyFleet Partner Programme for their 40+ vehicle fleet and 200+ staff base.
Launched initially in 2011, Craggs is now a primary provider of liquid fuels, tanks and fuel management services to homes, farms, businesses, and the public sector.More recently, founder and group CEO Chris Bingham has launched a programme to help transition homes and businesses towards more renewable energy solutions. These are in the form of Greenarc Energy, their net zero specialist business. So the move to EVs is very close to his heart.
Chris said: "It’s clear that the EV revolution is upon us. We’ve been working on new products and solutions for our clients, and we are end users ourselves. So, partnering with KeyFleet is a significant milestone in our journey to a net zero future. We were looking for a provider to help us understand where we are today and pinpoint our destination. But we also needed a partner to roll that out with the drivers and decision-makers.
"So far, it’s been great, and we’ve placed more than 15-20 vehicle orders with them in 2022. Plus, we’re looking forward to converting the rest of our essential car fleet to fully electric by 2024. Shortly after, we’ll transition our vans and many of our staff cars using KeyFleet’s SalEx (salary sacrifice) programme.
"If you are an SME and need to ‘go electric’ but don’t know how, talk to KeyFleet.”
Dave Turner, sales director at KeyFleet, added, “While the Craggs Energy Group were naturally motivated to make this move, we believe this is a challenge for all SMEs as we move towards 2030 and beyond.
"Through our Partner Programme, we can build a structured approach to the EV transition with expert advice for stakeholders and drivers. Simply providing a choice list featuring electric vehicles just isn’t enough. Drivers have questions and challenges, and it’s our role to help them navigate the move to electrification.
"In Craggs, we have another fantastic partner client. Friendly people who are great to do business with and appreciate our service and approach. We know we can add value and make a significant impact to help them towards their goals.”
