Strategy – Our expertise in asset management of rental equipment provides the glue which binds all of our business activities.Our aim is to develop a significant market presence in each of our chosen sectors that will enable us to deliver first class products and services to our wide ranging customer base. We continue to invest in the growth and development of our businesses, aiming to recruit the best people and to operate the best products. This supports our aim to continue to exceed the expectations of our customers and in so doing enhance value for all shareholders of Vp plc.
Our Brands – A healthy customer relationship is one built on understanding, respect and trust. With less emphasis on transactions and more emphasis on mutually beneficial and long-term relationships, today's customers and their clients are striving to reduce costs and improve their own performance. That is why they actively seek solution providers who share their thinking.
Best Value – The 'best value' ethic is driving customers and service providers to perform to a higher standard. As each Vp business unit uses its core competencies to address the wants and needs of a particular customer base, clients reap the rewards of this dedicated experience and expertise.
Simplified Processes – Customers buy services in different ways. Some like to deal with a familiar face over the local branch counter; others prefer a more centralised procurement process. Whatever environment the customer prefers, the aims are the same: responsive turnaround, 'open book' procedures and error-free transactions all supported by 'comprehensive management reporting', designed to reduce costs and add real value to the service.
