7th September 2016

Selsia Vehicle Accident centres has gained a ‘shop window’ with companies in the utilities sector by joining Achilles UVDB for the second year  – an online community that enables companies to manage supply chain risk and comply with EU regulations.

Selsia, which provides centrally managed accident repairs for national fleet companies, will now be able to share on an online platform its capabilities in all key business areas including compliance.

Achilles UVDB is used by over 1000 buyers from over 40 UK utilities companies to find suitably qualified suppliers. Achilles works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation, and desktop and physical audits. Several buying organisations also use the community as an approved mechanism for tendering for contracts above and below EU threshold contracts – streamlining the procurement process.

Neil Marcus, Selsia’s marketing director said “Selsia Vehicle Accident Centres is already a key strategic partner for major UK utilities and other leading national fleet companies. We look forward to working with more utilities organisations as a result of our continuing with the Achilles online community”.

Tom Grand, Regional Director for Achilles in the UK and Ireland, said: “By joining the biggest utilities supply chain risk management community in the UK, Selsia has put itself in the best position to be considered for work with UK utility buyers.”
