Automotive supply specialists Smart Fleet Solutions has invested in a new technical services centre in Livingston, expanding its offering into Scotland.
The business, which is part of Greenhous Group (Holdings) Ltd, currently employs more than 400 people across its seven UK centres and has expanded into Livingston, taking over an existing facility, and creating a need for skilled automotive refurbishment specialists within the region.
Smart Fleet Solutions has a long history of working with some of the largest and most prestigious companies in the motor industry, providing remarketing solutions, retailing through its EnjoyCarLife brand, and delivering a range of technical services – handling in excess of 100,000 vehicles via its network of technical centres.
Formerly A1 Automotive, the centre, located on Simpson Parkway, will be recruiting for a number of new technical services positions.
Sue Bennett, Director of HR, said: “Over the past 12 months, Smart Fleet Solutions has undergone a rapid expansion, opening new technical centres and investing in a new UK headquarters. With sites across the north, middle and south of England, the business was keen to establish a site in Scotland.
“The business has earned a reputation for managing some of the best technical centres in England, and with no presence in Scotland to date, we were keen to get a foothold here and we identified Livingston as an ideal location.
“To that end, SFS has acquired an existing technical facility, and we are currently refurbishing it to our standards, and are recruiting for a number of positions.
Over the coming months we’ll be looking to recruit in all areas of the business including refurbishment operatives (panel beaters, paint sprayers & Met Technicians), Operational staff, logistics staff and vehicle Inspectors.
Sue added: “This is an exciting time for the business. SFS has a reputation for providing excellent training and employment prospects as well as supporting the local community, and the team is looking forward to making an impact on the region and getting involved with local causes.
