KelleyAmerit Fleet Services, Inc. (KAFS) and Kelley Fleet Services have formally merged to create a unified organization under the KelleyAmerit Fleet Services name. The company said the merger makes KelleyAmerit Fleet Services the largest provider of comprehensive, customizable fleet management solutions for large-scale public and private vehicle fleets.
According to the company, by building on the “highly successful strategic partnership formed by Kelley Fleet Services and Amerit Consulting, this merger further enhances the compelling offering of the KelleyAmerit solution, marrying Kelley’s proven expertise in fleet maintenance services with KelleyAmerit’s world-class, national capacity for business process efficiency and best-practices execution.”
The result is a single-source fleet-management service that the company said offers clients “unprecedented economies of scale, bottom-line value, visibility and control, continuous improvement and comprehensive business analysis capabilities.”
“We’re ushering in the New Year by introducing an entirely new era in fleet management. We call it ‘The Power of One—One Process, One Fleet and One Partner,’” said president Bob Brauer. “By uniting these two great companies, we’ve created the largest single-source provider of all-inclusive fleet management services, offering greater cost savings, scalability, quality and depth of service than ever seen before.
“This comprehensive solution has already earned the trust of AT&T, one of the largest fleets in the country, and we look forward to making this powerful, holistic approach available to our current and future clients across the country,” he added.
KelleyAmerit Fleet Services said it has “promised a seamless transition for existing customers,” with no change in terms, account services or technical expertise. In addition, the merger is said to bring greater financial strength and stability, a more scalable, nationwide footprint and industry-leading expertise in the management and maintenance of alternative fuel vehicles. Additionally, KAFS now offers a broader range of management and optimization services, including parts and fuel procurement programs, standardized shop management and safety practices, labor tracking and workforce optimization.
As a California-certified Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) and a federally qualified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business, the company noted the new KAFS also offers its clients an “opportunity to add diversity to their supply chain.”
