Hexagon Leasing chooses Bridgestone

Commercial vehicle contract hire and rental company Hexagon Leasing has contracted Bridgestone, thanks to its products, bespoke reporting systems and a tailored tyre pressure monitoring policy.

Hexagon Leasing has become one of Bridgestone’s biggest fleet partners, with more than 3,000 of its vehicles now being fitted with the company’s tyres.

After months of talks and tyre trials, Bridgestone was selected as the mobility solutions leader to take the business forward.

Hexagon head of operations Dean Bailey said: “Our brief was a bit like piecing together a big jigsaw, as there are so many things to factor in such as product selection, reporting, maintenance and of course price. Bridgestone turned out to be the perfect fit for us.

“We weren’t looking for a tyre supplier, but a strategic partner who could understand our requirements and provide a range of bespoke solutions thereafter. It became very clear early on that Bridgestone were one of few companies who could deliver in this regard.”

The Hexagon fleet will predominantly run on the Duravis R002.

Both Hexagon and its customers will also benefit from an agreed tyre pressure policy, said to not only the fleet money in terms of fuel but will also reduce the risk of costly breakdowns and improve on downtime targets.

Bailey added: “Bridgestone’s full reporting suite is a key component behind our partnership too. It allows us to forecast our monthly spend and monthly replacements and also provides in-depth reports about the things we want to see, such as effective tyre husbandry and pressure checks to get the maximum life from each casing.”
