Redde Northgate plc, a FTSE 250 company, came together as a merged entity in February 2020. The merger brought together Northgate plc, a leading light commercial vehicle rental business and Redde plc, a leading provider of incident and accident management, legal and other mobility services. This merger enabled the combined business to provide a comprehensive suite of mobility services, with the combined offering now spanning the lifecycle of a vehicle, from vehicle supply through repair, incident management and disposal.
