Gott wins emergency contract

GottFamily firm Gott Technical Services is shifting up a gear after winning a four-year contract to keep the emergency services moving in the North East.

The Morpeth-based motor equipment supplier won a competitive five-way pitch to inspect and service vehicle maintenance equipment across the emergency services of Northumbria Police, Durham Constabulary and the North East Ambulance Service.

Gott Technical Services Director Ian Gott said: “This was a valuable six figure contract won against stiff competition throughout a formal tender process, so we’re all delighted to have secured the work.

“Our keen pricing and understanding of the industry clinched it. We’ve also recently invested in a new back office software system which helps us gain a lot of management information on the progress of our contracts, which we can share with our clients.”

The win adds to the list of public sector and emergency services equipment and maintenance contracts Gott already manages, which includes a number of North East councils and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue.

After a 35% increase in turnover last year, followed by several new opportunities to grow out of the North East into Cumbria and Scotland, Gott is currently looking to make several new appointments in its field sales team.

A Northumbria Police Spokesman said: “We look forward to working in partnership with Gott over the next four years to deliver a quality service that will bring efficiency savings and benefit all parties concerned.”

The contract will involve the inspection and maintenance of equipment in five garages as well as the wash down and tyre inflation facilities in over 30 stations between Teesside and Berwick.

Gott currently has more than 500 active clients from small garages to large multi-site motor retail groups. It also operates as a consultancy in the public transport, haulage, local government and emergency service sectors.
