LEASING broker funder Leasys has risen to 14th spot in the FN50 2021 list of the UK’s largest and most successful contract hire and leasing companies.
In this, the fifth year of consecutive growth, Leasys UK has climbed a further two places, cementing its place as one of the fastest growing firms in the market.
Broker News funder partner Leasys UK is the contract hire division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Bank (FCA Bank), which now comes under the Stellantis Group umbrella.
With new products launched during 2021, Leasys has grown 11.5% over the last year. Its fleet is now the largest in its history, with more than 18,300 vehicles.
Growth has come about partly because of new products such as Leasys Miles – a pay-as-you-go fixed cost per mile offer – and the recently launched Leasys Unlimited programme, which provides long-term electric or hybrid vehicle rentals, available from brands as diverse as Fiat and Abarth to Maserati.
Clickar was launched at the end of last year which enables retailers and traders an easier way to purchase pre-owned vehicles online, without additional costs.
New models from the parent group including the all-electric Fiat 500 and Jeep Renegade 4xe PHEV have also contributed to Leasys UK’s growth.
Sebastiano Fedrigo, managing director of Leasys UK (main picture), said: “The achievements of the past year, including the introduction of a range of new products, has helped cement Leasys’ success and growth by offering customers and retailers innovative solutions to meet their evolving needs.
“The expansion of Leasys Miles, the launch of Clickar and the introduction of Leasys Unlimited all within 2021 is just the start. Growing for five years in a row clearly poses its challenges, which we are addressing by increasing the team and working more efficiently with our suppliers and partners. With the creation of Stellantis, we feel even more confident of our capacity to grow further in the years ahead.”
