Marshall Fleet Solutions – Our Story

The origins of the company date back to 1972, starting off as a mobile service company. Now, 45 years later, Marshall Fleet Solutions (Trading name of Marshall Thermo King Ltd) is now the U.K.’s largest independent refrigeration (including installation), tail lift and commercial vehicle fleet service and support organisation.

Launched initially as Marshall Thermo King, we quickly established the UK’s largest Transport Refrigeration service based around the global Thermo King brand, and have subsequently expanded to incorporate additional equipment ranges.

MFS are now main dealers for all leading tail lift, shutter door and lifting deck equipment companies including VBG couplings.

We have over 150 mobile vans covering the UK to provide a 24/7 response to a diverse customer base including 12,000 assets on fleet managed packages.

Today, Marshall Fleet Solutions is as committed as ever to the original equipment manufacturers that we support. As part of the successful family run Marshall Group, we have gone from strength to strength, as we continue to be ‘Working for you’.

Marshall Values

Upholding the highest standards of integrity and fairness

Small things can make a big difference. Living our values day in, day out, helps us make the right decisions as individuals and as a group

Putting our customers above all else

If we treat each customer as a person, not just another contract, we can get inside their heads and understand exactly what they need and why they need it

Recognising that people are at the heart of our success

Computers and machines are our tools, but it is we who get the job done. Without Marshall people, there would be no Marshall Group

Maintaining competitive edge through innovation and creativity

In 10 years’ time, much of our revenue will come from products and services we don’t currently offer. Our challenge is to create these products and services
