Pullman Fleet Services adds 10 technicians

Doncaster, UK: Pullman Fleet Services, a long-standing Carrier Transicold service provider, has replaced its 35 vans and added 10 new technicians.

The 35 new 3.5-tonne service vans replace the existing fleet and have the latest generation tooling, a new internal storage system to increase equipment capacity, and will operate up to 24 hours per day, seven days per week, covering the East of Scotland, South and West Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North London.

The 10 new technicians increase Pullman Fleet Services’ maintenance capacity across its three service regions of Bathgate, Maltby and Spalding.

“Growing our team is vital to support Carrier’s expanding product range and customer base, and demonstrates our continued confidence in the brand – particularly as it introduces new flagship products like the Vector HE 19 trailer unit,” said James Hipkiss, general manager, Pullman Fleet Services.

“We carry out most service work at customer locations, so our fleet is business critical. Putting 35 new vans on the road is a major commitment, but it’s important we give our teams the best equipment for the job.”

Pullman Fleet Services has also put five of its technicians on Carrier Transicold UK’s Training Academy programme, since its launch in 2015. The academy’s objective is to ensure a steady flow of new talent into the network by providing quality training for future generations of transport refrigeration engineers.

“We’ve been putting new recruits through the Training Academy for four years and it’s great to see how their skills develop during the course. It’s a fantastic way to nurture the next generation of technicians into the industry,” Hipkiss said.

Pullman Fleet Services has been part of the Carrier Transicold service partner network for more than 20 years, trading as Carrier Transicold Bathgate, Carrier Transicold Lincolnshire and Carrier Transicold South & West Yorkshire.
