The great part of being Chairman of the Board of KWL, is that no two years are ever the same for this company.
KWL Fleet provides a diverse range of approximately 650 vehicles, driver assessment training and MOT testing of 1200 hackney and private vehicles.
KWL recently supported the East Hull 20 Road Race by providing a vehicle to assist the organisers in preparing the course for the race which took place on Sunday 9th March 2014.
KWL recently volunteered to take part in setting a new world record with ‘Blue Peter’ for Comic Relief!!
A total of 59 decommissioned bedsits were brought back into the housing stock and converted into one bedroom flats.
As an accredited installer working with the Local Authority in their effort to reduce fuel poverty for those living in social housing, KWL embarked upon a Solar PV installation project which ran for 6-months to April 2012. During this period we installed systems to 135 sustainable properties, fitting a total of 1200 individual panels which was a fantastic achievement from a standing start! Along with the longer-term profitable return on investment for the Council through the ‘feed-in-tariff’, it demonstrated their commitment toward sustainable development at community level.
KWL is continuing to invest in providing a skilled workforce for the future by the recruitment of nine full time employees during the summer of 2013. The apprentices were recruited from local training providers and had to sit an aptitude test and interview prior to being successful.
Hull City Council’s Pryme Street car park is benefitting from the installation of 200 solar photovoltaic panels covering a surface area of 372 metre squared.
