Benchmark International is pleased to announce the transaction between Avian and Nationwide.
Avian is a UK-based national field service specialist that has been operating since 1987, installing cutting-edge vehicle technologies including telematics solutions, tracking technology, vehicle cameras, parking sensors, UBIs, dash cams and more. The company operates across multiple market sectors and has developed its own software package in-house allowing full automation of processes.
Nationwide specialises in a wide range of fleet support services, focusing on tyres for all vehicle types. With its head office in Southampton, the company has a 24/7 UK-based call centre and an award-winning breakdown booking mobile app.
The deal effectively doubles Nationwide’s engineering coverage across the UK at a time that the fleet industry increasingly seeks technological solutions to enhance safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
Graham Price, managing director of Avian, stated: “Joining forces with Nationwide heralds a new chapter for our team. Nationwide’s unwavering dedication to quality and customer satisfaction will help maintain Avian Fleet’s legacy and deliver great opportunities to our employees and customers.”
