FLEETMAXX SOLUTIONS announces a Strategic Partnership Programme with Kilnbridge to save up to £25,000 a year in fuel costs


Kilnbridge is a building and civil engineering business operating as a turnkey specialist structures contractor. They have dedicated business units in Construction and Civil Engineering, Concrete Cutting, Fabrication, Fire Protection, and Waste Management.

These different businesses require different types of vehicles. Head of Fleet, Mick Kemp, explains: “We currently have several different types of vehicles, totalling 125, ranging from small to medium-size vans, refuse vehicles and Roll-on Roll-off skip vehicles, to articulated vehicles, such as Beavertails, Artic HIAB and low loaders.”

Kilnbridge is involved with some significant national infrastructure projects. These span a range of sectors, including commercial, residential, infrastructure, aviation, rail, energy including nuclear all serviced by our the inhouse plant and equipment business K-Plant.

The pressure to deliver service and reduce running costs are the performance goals that matter. Kemp explains: “A saving in fuel costs of just one per cent can add up to a £20,000 increase in the company’s bottom line. The question I always ask is, “how much work would you need to carry out to make £20,000 when most transport companies bottom line is between three and five per cent”?”

Like any business, Key Performance Indicators define and measure progress toward organisational goals. Kilnbridge is a proud member of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).

FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme established in 2008 that gives its members a clear set of requirements to demonstrate that they run a quality operation with exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.
