NHS contractor Millbrook Healthcare has taken delivery of 27 new Peugeot vans. The new additions take the firm’s fleet of Peugeot LCVs over the 400 van market for the first time.
The 27 new vans are mostly PEUGEOT Boxer 435 models, with the addition of two PEUGEOT Expert vans and a Luton-bodied Boxer. Millbrook’s role is to collect and deliver equipment to enable patients and those n need of care to remain comfortable and independent in their homes.
The equipment carried in the vans can range of large heavy items such as bed and hoists to smaller items like walking sticks and crutches. To help carry these mixed loads safely, Millbrook’s vans are fitted with internal racking, access ramps and other modifications by Bristol-based conversion specialist Motor On Services.
“We are really pleased to be part of the growing Millbrook Healthcare success story and delighted to be supplying the company with its 400th PEUGEOT”, commented Martin Gurney, Director of Fleet at PSA Group UK, “Millbrook Healthcare transports a wide range of equipment, helping to improve the lives of many people and the PEUGEOT light CV range provides vans ideally suited to the company’s unique needs.”
The latest 27 additions to the fleet will operate from Millbrook’s newest centre near Exeter, which opened its doors in June. The Exeter centre is one of 30 nationwide locations, from which Southampton-based Millbrook delivers more than 800,000 items of community equipment every year.
