JG Pears were established in 1974 as an animal by-product business and have grown and diversified over the years, with a 24/7 operation from three depots. They provide a valuable service in the area, with clients ranging from local farmers to multi-national companies.
JG Pears joined the ECO Stars Schemes in Nottingham, York and South Yorkshire in May 2013. They supplied a full fleet listing and an ECO Stars fleet expert visited them on-site to discuss their fleet and fuel management practices and to complete an application form. Each individual vehicle was assessed along with the overall fleet management operation – the result was a four star rating, which was an excellent achievement for their first time around.
