Established in 1978, Fraikin Ltd is one of the largest providers of commercial vehicle contract hire, fleet management and rental solutions in the UK market.

Headquartered in Coventry, we operate a nationwide branch network, supported by third-party approved maintenance providers who are frequently audited to ensure they meet our high standards.

We can supply all forms of commercial vehicles, from vans and minibuses to multi-wheelers and maximum weight artics, plus specialist vehicles with complex bodywork and ancillary equipment.

We stand apart for our expertise – few suppliers in this sector have been in business longer, and our flexibilty means we can personalise services to suit our customers’ precise requirements. Plus our indpendence means we can propose multi-brand solutions to even the most challenging transport applications, rather than being tied to a particular manufacturer.

We form a major part of the Fraikin Group, established in France in 1944 by Gérard Fraikin, and now boasting operations in 11 countries across Europe, Russia and the Middle East. With an annual turnover exceeding €660m, Fraikin Group supports more than 7,000 customers and is responsible for approximately 60,000 vehicles.
