Selsia and AkzoNobel launch new CV networkReturn to news
4th July 2013
Selsia Vehicle Accident Centres and AkzoNobel have joined forces to provide a full range of accident repair and refinishing services for operators of heavy goods vehicles under the Selsia CV brand.
Selsia’s CV heavy commercial network and AkzoNobel’s Acoat CV repairers have pulled together their experience, professionalism and extensive repair equipment to form this new, fully managed commercial vehicle repair network.
AkzoNobel, the World’s largest coatings company, provides products to all major global industries, and has a significant presence in the Commercial Vehicle sector in the UK and overseas. Their specialist fleet sales team has many years of experience and understands the pressures and requirements of today’s commercial vehicle fleet operators, across all industrial sectors. In combining this with Selsia’s tried and tested, fully managed accident management services, every possible requirement can be met. This includes centrally prepared service levels agreements, 24 hour, 365 days FNOL, nationwide recovery, engineering services, refinishing specification control, high quality repairs to every class of commercial vehicles, re-painting programmes, management information and KPI reports. Moreover, due to the large and complex range of commercial vehicles on the roads, repairs can even be deployed to the most appropriate repairer for the type of vehicle, anywhere in the UK.
AkzoNobel’s National Sales Manager CV, Paul Ryley commented “AkzoNobel has a significant amount of experience and works closely with the leading commercial vehicle operators in the UK and internationally with our technologically advanced and fully supported Sikkens Autocoat BT refinishing system. Now, with Selsia, we have a combined network and a fully managed accident service which will bring clear advantages for all operators of commercial vehicles”.
For fleets, this move will bring significant benefits. Dealing directly with the repair network as opposed to going through accident intermediaries will reduce VOR times and improve efficiency in the incident process. Fleet operators will also enjoy reduced repair costs from dealing directly with a managed CV repairer network where management charges are not passed on as well as having pre-agreed and standardised SLA rates across the UK. Further savings can also be achieved with Selsia CV’s repair over replace policy as well as the use of green and re-cycled parts, where required.
