Autoglym wins Stagecoach contract

Vehicle-care expert Autoglym has secured a contract with Stagecoach to look after its entire fleet of buses at over 100 depots in Britain.

Autoglym will be providing cleaning chemicals for all cleaning disciplines including vehicle exteriors, all interior surfaces and workshop floors.

The contract will also see Autoglym install and maintain dilution equipment at every depot to help aid Stagecoach’s health and safety objectives and allow cleaning operatives to achieve consistency in product dilution, optimise product performance and ensure accurate cost control.

The products supplied under the deal come from Autoglym Professional’s range of dedicated PSV cleaning products. Among them are Extra Deep Clean – a multi-purpose product used for everything except the main external wash. It is used on interior surfaces throughout, as well as the vehicle pre-wash, bus and workshop floors, with Autoglym Professional’s established pH neutral shampoo Diamond Shine being used for the main external bus wash.

Paul Rowlands, head of Autoglym key accounts, said: “The cleanliness of public transport is more important than ever right now, so we’re absolutely delighted that Stagecoach has put its trust into Autoglym as its primary cleaning product supply partner.

“This is very much a partnership with a long-term vision and is about a lot more than just cleaning chemicals. It includes a full Autoglym Professional support package and a dedicated PSV market offering, from the products to our dedicated PSV technical specialists and account managers, all of whom are committed to keeping Britain’s buses as clean as possible in these challenging times.”
