Wightman & Parrish

Electric Vans

At Wightman & Parrish, we believe in doing what’s best for our customers and the planet. That’s why we recently upgraded our fleet of vans to include three all-electric Ford E-Transit vans, with the help of Birchwood Group. These new vehicles will help us reduce emissions, save on fuel costs, and provide a more sustainable future for our customers and the environment.

We also aim to electrify our entire fleet, maximizing the use of the green energy we generate through our solar panels.


We are committed to helping build a healthier planet through sustainability initiatives like investing in all-electric vans. These vans help us reduce our carbon footprint while providing cost savings from fuel savings over time as well as added safety features such as lane keeping assistance and blind spot monitoring for our drivers and customers alike. We estimate based on the stats we have recieved from our first few months of driving the vans, that within a year, we will have reduced our output of CO2 by 12 tonnes. We believe businesses should be leaders when it comes to environmental stewardship—and this is just one step towards achieving that goal!

Birchwood Group said "The all-electric E-Transit vans are the perfect solution for businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future. We believe that sustainability is key to creating a better future for our planet and for businesses like Wightman & Parrish. By working together, we can help businesses make the transition to more sustainable operations and create a more sustainable future for us all. We are proud to support Wightman & Parrish in their sustainability journey, and we look forward to continuing to support businesses in their pursuit of sustainability."
