British Gas Business has taken delivery of 227 Nissan NV200 electric vans to deliver central heating and renewable energy services across the UK.  This will modernise and make PH Jones commercial fleet super efficient.

PH Jones, part of British Gas Business, will use the light commercial vans to provide national coverage. They will cover an impressive three million miles each year.

Social housing

Established in 1963 as a local heating contractor in the North West and Wales, PH Jones is now part of the British Gas group of businesses.

The subsidiary company has since expanded to become a specialist social housing provider across the country. It supplies central heating installations, heating services and repair and electrical services – including renewable energy services.

PH Jones works with over 50 social housing clients from 23 regional offices, looking after 1 in 6 social housing homes across the UK.

Van trial

The heating maintenance company underwent a four-week trial of the NV200 vans before agreeing to the deal. During this intense reviewing period, drivers tested whether the NV200 would be the appropriate vehicle for its fleet’s daily usage patterns. The trial was successful, with drivers praising the NV200 for its comfort and its ability safely to house all of their repair tools and equipment.

Jon Marshall, PH Jones fleet manager said, “This is a very large order for us so it was important we undertook an intensive vehicle trial to ensure the vans would be fit for purpose.

As well as being a hit with the drivers thanks to the handling and air conditioning, the support from Nissan throughout has been excellent and we look forward to continuing to work together in the coming months.”

Fleet replacement

The vans will sport the PH Jones livery and will be fitted with racking in order to replace a fleet of Citroen Berlingo and Dispatch vans.

Barry Beeston, Nissan GB corporate sales director, said: “It’s important that homes up and down the country can rely on a rapid and reliable response from their heating repairer and the NV200 will help with that process.”
