A new partnership between two of Stirling’s leading organisations is set to boost sports coaching and provision in the area over the next five years.
Active Stirling and the Ogilvie Group have announced a five-year agreement to help Active Stirling’s sports, schools and coaching teams get on the road and into schools and communities across the Stirling area.
Ogilvie Group is 60 years old and the company has taken delivery of a uniquely liveried 40-strong fleet of Ford vans that also marks the diamond jubilee landmark of its business relationship with the ‘blue oval’.
Ogilvie Group started life as a construction company in Scotland. However, an on-going diversification strategy has seen the Stirling-headquartered company transformed into an organisation with a turnover of more than £200 million with six divisions, including Ogilvie Fleet.
Ogilvie Fleet has taken delivery of two Tesla Model S pure electric cars and installed recharging points at its headquarters.
The two cars are being driven by Ogilvie Fleet directors and employees and are being loaned to customers to increase their knowledge of electric vehicles as company cars.
The independent vehicle leasing and fleet management company, which has well over 11,000 company cars and vans on its books, has installed three electric vehicle recharging points at its Stirling headquarters. Additionally, it is installing recharging points at employees’ homes.

As a registered charity, Keech provide free, specialist care for adults in Luton and south Bedfordshire, and children from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes, who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses.
Ogilvie Fleet is celebrating becoming becoming only the second organisation in the vehicle leasing and fleet management sector to gain Investors in People Gold Standard.
Almost 11,500 organisations in the UK have achieved Investors in People accreditation, but only the very best go on to gain Gold status by meeting additional evidence requirements and thus achieving the most successful framework for business improvement through people in the country.
Investors in People data reveals that just 1,577 employers hold the Gold Standard and Ogilvie Fleet is one of just two in its sector thereby joining an exclusive group of UK organisations.
Despite a greater number of older vehicles now returning due to fleet replacement cycle extension as a consequence of the tough economic climate faced by many businesses in recent years, average damage charges have been held at what Ogilvie Fleet believe are industry-leading low levels:
