Stockton-on-Tees based Doug Pope Heating Services has driven off in a brand new Nissan e-NV200 thanks to Wolseley and Baxi.

The amazing four-wheeled prize was up for grabs to one lucky customer who bought a Baxi boiler from the 200, 400, 600, 800 and Platinum plus ranges, either in branch or online, directly from Wolseley – and the winning name drawn out of the hat was the north-east of England business.

“Baxi boilers are easy to install and service. The aftercare service from both Baxi and Wolseley is second to none. Of course, winning the van today is a huge perk!

“With the rising cost of diesel and the government scrappage scheme, banning all diesel vehicles from 2030, this allows us to futureproof our company along with reducing our carbon footprint. We have been looking into hybrid and electric vehicles for our fleet.

“It’s allowed us to meet our own goals with regards to being carbon neutral sooner than planned.”

The electric van features a 40kWh battery and Nissan Intelligent Mobility, with a maximum range of 187 miles in city.

Richard Harvey, Commercial Director at Wolseley said: “A huge congratulations to Doug Pope Heating Services who have been handed the keys to this brand new electric Nissan van. I’m sure it will be a valuable asset for their business.”

David Cook, Residential Sales Director at Baxi said: “Baxi is committed to supporting installers by providing the best boilers and support available. We are committed to helping them and their customers become more environmentally sustainable as part of the UK’s journey towards its target of net zero carbon by 2050. Our congratulations go to Doug Pope Heating Services.”
