FAB Recycling Ltd is shortlisted for Best New Product or Service in this year’s prestigious Fleet News Awards 2014, the most well-regarded accolades in the industry.
The fast-growing Forest of Dean-based vehicle recycling company received the nomination for its My Green Fleet service. It removes all non-safety parts from damaged and written-off public and private-sector fleet vehicles, then sells them back to the donor fleets as and when required.
My Green Fleet began recycling parts for Police and emergency vehicles in 2010 and has saved 40 Police forces £2 million during the past 18 months. The service is now expanding into the private sector and insurance markets.
My Green Fleet hit the headlines last Autumn when it caught the attention of Cabinet Ministers and MPs at the Conservative Party’s national conference.
Managing director Jason Cross received overwhelmingly positive feedback for business from Home Secretary Teresa May, Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling and Minster for State and Policing Damian Green.
Jason Cross, says, "The Fleet News Awards are very prestigious and being shortlisted is a huge endorsement for My Green Fleet. We believe we have a good chance of winning due to the fantastic support and recognition we are gaining inside public and private sector fleet vehicle organisations, enabling significant savings with the use of traceable, recycled vehicle parts."
The winners will be announced on 19th March.
The other shortlisted companies for the award are: Alphabet (GB), LeasePlan UK, RAC, and Smart Witness.
