Ford announces 100-vehicle deal in centenary year12 August 2011

A loyal Ford customer has placed a special centenary order, of a vehicle for every year that market leading Blue Oval has traded in Britain.

Grounds and countryside management services provider Glendale had originally planned a 97-vehicle order, but the opportunity to mark Ford of Britain's centenary celebrations – and those of Ford dealer Gordons of Bolton – proved too appealing.

The 100 Ford vehicles are drawn from the full Ford commercial range, including Fiesta Van, Ranger, Transit Connect and Transit. Many are converted for horticultural and arboricultural work.

Stuart Darbyshire, commercial director at Glendale says: "The team at Gordons Ford knows exactly what we require from our fleet, what specifications we need, and provide an excellent service to us through the life of a vehicle. The relationship between Glendale, Ford and Gordons spans many years and is testament to the quality of the product and the service they provide."

Glendale's vehicle fleet currently stands at around 650, of which 90 per cent are Ford models.
