We need to have reliability, we need to have our people on the road all the time, and we need to have a partner that helps us do that. Mike Albert has been a good partner with us. We have looked at other companies, and worked with other companies, and tested other companies, as any good company will do.
"We always come back to Mike Albert, because both the reliability, the service, the cost, and our overall experience is better than working with any other company." Tim MillerPresident, Velux - USA
The mission of Velux Skylights is quite simple. It’s to bring the natural elements of daylight and fresh air through the roof to where people live, work, and enjoy themselves. A skylight is the best way to do that. It brings in 3 times more light than a vertical window, and even the federal government has said that the most energy efficient window in the world is a Velux skylight.
Globally, we have 20,000 employees. We have tens of thousands of vehicles that we manage. And we had a big initiative to leverage our global strength to going into one partner on many things –whether it was forklifts, whether it was steel, whether it was leasing. And so, we followed in the footsteps of our global plan and used a … tested, I should say, a different company for fleet management. Let’s just say it wasn’t a good experience.
We always come back to Mike Albert, because both the reliability, the service, the cost, and our overall experience is better than working with any other company. And at this point in time, in the United States, we are the only Velux company around the world, not using the global partner. That’s the advantage we have with Mike Albert.
Joe Brown, Director of Operations, Velux Skylights:
When you call, they know you. And they know the little weird things that we may want at Velux. And so, you don’t have to worry about a relationship – that’s kinda already built in.
Tim Miller, President, Velux Skylights:
I would tell Mike Albert is, is what makes you unique and better is, yes, your costs are good. Yes, your fleet operations are good. Yes, your choices are good. But the service that you provide, to us, on a daily basis, and the people that you have was the key advantage. With other companies, we would have to add personnel to manage the fleet. With Mike Albert, you can do it all for us.
