Ogilvie Fleet's sister company Ogilvie Construction has taken delivery of its latest batch of vans to replace existing ones and allow for continued expansion.
The 38 Ford Transit Customs have been branded up in Ogilvie colours by specialist livery company Mediafleet. Ten of the vans have been designed with the rear doors branded in the style of each of the Ogilvie Group divisions - Ogilvie Fleet, Ogilvie Homes, Malcolm Hughes and Net Defence.
The have been leased on a four-year fully maintained basis and are now on the road working on major construction sites across Scotland.
Ogilvie Fleet has notched double top in the 2018 fleet industry ‘Techies’ - the annual awards that recognise the fleet industry’s technology-specific products and services across all areas of the business car market - thus repeating last year’s twin triumph.
Ogilvie Fleet won the Remarketing Award and the Editor’s Choice Award for APPraisal, its smartphone app designed to help fleet managers and drivers overcome often contentious end-of-contract damage charges on company vehicles.
Launched this year, APPraisal is a sister app to the company’s award-winning ‘Happy Drivers’ App, which contains a raft of features and information available to all fleet managers and company car and van drivers not just customers.
The two awards, the latest in a raft of industry award triumphs stretching back almost a decade, further cements Ogilvie Fleet’s position as the number one contract hire and leasing company for providing the most technologically advanced and sophisticated management and information solutions to customers.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond delivered his third Budget speech this week (Monday, October 29, 2018).
It was the final Budget prior to the UK leaving the European Union on March 29 next year. However, the Chancellor said that in the event of the UK being unable to secure a Brexit agreement with the European Union, and therefore there being a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, he would hold an emergency Budget.
Below we highlight the Chancellor’s key autumn 2018 Budget measures that will impact on the company car and van sector and the wider motor industry.

The Ogilvie Group are delighted to announce the continued sponsorship of Glasgow Clan for the 2018/19 season.
The partnership will once again see the Ogilvie branding appear on the ice at Braehead Arena as well as being the official player sponsor of Swedish forward Gerard Hanson.
Nick Hardy, Sales & Marketing Director at Ogilvie said: “Ogilvie are of course delighted to be once again sponsoring the Glasgow Clan. We’ve had a fantastic relationship for a number of years now and have our own growing Clan fanbase from our Head Office in Stirling.
“The branding we have with the club and around the ice helps raise our various Group company profiles in the region in a way that is harder to achieve elsewhere in sports marketing, and also compliments the other relationships we have with a number of other Elite League clubs.
“To say the least we have a fair bit of friendly rivalry within Ogilvie and our fans from Glasgow, Belfast and Sheffield. All in good spirit of course….but nobody ever wants to lose. We hope the Clan have a great season and are thrilled to be alongside again this year”.
Glasgow Clan’s Gerry McLaughlin commented: “Ogilvie aren’t just a great company that covers construction, automobiles and technology, they’re also a tremendous supporter of hockey in the UK. They go above and beyond, not just in their sponsorship support, but also in bringing new people to the sport we all love”
