AMT Group makes £250,000 Mercedes investment

Vehicle rental business AMT Group has further strengthened its position in the luxury chauffeur sector with the addition of a further five MPVs to its fleet of specialist vehicles.

AMT Group, which focusses on the prestige and specialist vehicle sector, has become one of just a handful of companies in the UK to offer short term rental of the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Sport, a luxury MPV used to chauffeur celebrities and VIPs.

The new vehicles will boost AMT’s luxury fleet by over 35%, suitable for hire to the chauffeur and corporate travel sector that includes Mercedes S Class limousines, plus E Class, Range Rover LWB, Jaguar XJ and Audi A8.

“Increasingly, we are finding that corporate and private customers are not only demanding top of the range vehicles, but also want a wider choice of types of models,” explains Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group.  “Luxury chauffeur driven vehicles is a buoyant market segment, particularly for airport transfers, and consequently we are continuing to invest in upgrading this part of our fleet to ensure that we can provide the very latest and most luxurious models.”

AMT Group serves both the corporate and leisure markets and has the largest independent fleet in the UK comprising 1,500 vehicles, operating from seven locations across the country.  Most recently, it opened a brand new rental facility near Stockport Manchester to develop its business in the North West, with a focus on serving Liverpool and Manchester airports.

The group also has a leasing division offering a substantial short term leasing fleet comprising all types of cars and commercial vehicles.

Established in 1995, AMT Group is a privately owned business employing 180 staff around the UK.  It offers a complete automotive solution via its vehicle rental; short term lease; contract hire and leasing; and specialist cars divisions.
