Smeg announces new gas safe fleet

Smeg UK has announced the introduction of its brand new gas team and fleet of gas installation vans, servicing the south of England.

The fleet will allow Smeg to provide home delivery and installation of all its gas-based products, such as the Victoria, Opera and Symphony range cookers.

It will also allow the firm to carry out gas exchanges, providing a one-stop shop for its customers.

Smeg has just seen the opening of its new eco-conscious headquarters in Abingdon, Oxfordshire; the expansion of its logistics infrastructure with a new Coventry hub; the announcement of a planned London flagship store and growth in sales.

Smeg said the new fleet of Smeg branded gas vans are now operational. The vans feature all the specialist tools needed for gas fitting and all Smeg engineers are Gas Safe accredited.

Once reaching full capacity, the team will be able to service nine to 10 orders per day, comprising ‘one stop shop’ home delivery and installation orders, plus gas exchanges in the south of England.

Said Smeg UK managing director Mike Giddings: “Providing a seamless customer experience is key to the Smeg philosophy. Being able to offer a fully integrated fitting service will allow us to be part of this customer experience from start to finish, which is something that makes us very proud.

“This has been an incredible year for Smeg UK, with the launch of key new product ranges such as our premium Dolce Stil Novo range and the partnership with Dolce and Gabbana earlier this summer. We are keen to push forward and capitalise on the fantastic new opportunities that are ahead of us.”
