M. Barnwell Services Ltd, the UK’s largest stockist and distributor of fluid sealing products, has targeted its vehicle fleet in its mission to cut its carbon footprint, dropping diesels in favour of new Toyota hybrids.
The Midlands-based company, which has offices across the UK mainland, has chosen British-built Auris Hybrid Touring Sports cars for its national sales teams. Up to 25 will join the fleet, matching excellent load-carrying ability with the low emissions and strong fuel economy that are key characteristics of Toyota’s full hybrid system.
Tim Stanley, M. Barnwell Services Financial Controller, said: “We are looking at all aspects of our business to find ways of reducing our carbon footprint and complying with the ISO 14001 standard for environmental management. Our vehicle fleet is a significant factor in this and we can see the real benefits to be gained from making the switch from diesel to hybrid power.”
“The Toyota Auris Hybrid Touring Sports meets our requirements in terms of cleaner performance.”
