The CBS Journey

2002

The Story Begins.

CBS was established in 2002 when tax legislation on company cars changed to a CO₂ emissions based rating. The company set out to offer financially and operationally efficient value adding Employee Car Ownership Schemes to corporate clients, commencing operations from a small office in Bury with a team of just 5. The first scheme launched in July that year.

2007

First Automotive Scheme.

Within a few years the company were partner of choice to some of the UK’s biggest blue chip clients, but it was 2007 when a premium manufacturer approached CBS for a solution, their brief was simple: “We want to make our cars affordable for our network, so employees working in franchise dealerships become product experts and ambassadors for our brand.”

2012

Live Fleet Reaches 2,000 Cars.

CBS expertise was gathering momentum quickly. The 3rd manufacturer brand launched a scheme with CBS and the business surpassed 2,000 live fleet, a huge milestone at the time. Later that year the business prepared to relocate to The Barracks, a former Lancashire Fusiliers Regiment museum transformed into a modern office space.

2015

20th Manufacturer Brand.

The expertise of a growing CBS team and successful delivery of its solutions across the automotive sector set the business up for a period of significant growth over the following 3 years, with CBS more than doubling in size. CBS celebrated bringing on its 20th manufacturer and surpassed 7,000 live vehicles in September 2015.
