Refuse vehicle hire and maintenance company Collett Transport Services (CTS) is delighted to announce the appointment of Tony Nicholls as Operations Manager to support Directors, Andy and Bridget Collett, in bringing innovative short term hire solutions to their developing business.
Before joining CTS Tony worked as Regional Fleet Manager (South West) for a leading recycling and resource management company for over 20 years. His role involved managing over 500 vehicles as well as numerous workshops.
Tony’s remit at CTS is to manage the day-to-day operations of the hire desk, service centre, workshop, fabrication and parts department, as well as helping Andy and Bridget push forward with the expansion of the business.
Tony said: “I’ve known Bridget and Andy for over 10 years and I like the way they run their business. I was looking for a fresh and exciting challenge and the position fits my skill set perfectly. Having spent the last 34 years being responsible for delivering waste collection operations, I will bring a ‘Customers perspective’ to the role. CTS is a thriving company with a great future ahead and I’m looking forward to being a part of driving the business forward.”
Andy Collett said: “Tony was the first municipal customer for our commercial vehicle repair business back in 2003. That contract led us to set up a refuse vehicle hire business and we have worked with Tony ever since. He was the obvious choice for us and he’s seen how CTS has developed from humble beginnings. We know he will rapidly integrate into our team, which is so important to us. Tony has a wealth of experience in the sector and will do a great job of running our operations whilst assisting us in growing the business and maintaining our high standards.”
CTS offers flexible and competitive refuse vehicle hire packages for the short or long term including a quick response Spot Hire service. The company’s expertise includes total municipal fleet support from contract maintenance, workshop management, mobile repairs and complete vehicle refurbishment.
CTS has a growing fleet of over 120 vehicles, comprising primarily refuse and recycling collection vehicles and is continually investing in new vehicles. The company is going from strength to strength since becoming part of Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) in 2013.
A member of the Rothschild Group, SFS provides contract hire and vehicle leasing solutions to the private and public sector along with comprehensive fleet management services and workshop expertise.
