Attention to detail and a straight-forward business approach has helped Ogilvie Fleet win a four-year full outsourcing contract to provide vehicles and a range of services to Hampshire-based Raymond Brown Construction.

The construction company, which has offices across southern England and Wales, and operates in multiple work streams including the core specialist areas of energy, rail and building, has turned to Ogilvie Fleet after facing “challenges” with other vehicle suppliers in recent years.

Both Ogilvie Fleet and Raymond Brown Construction are privately owned businesses and each can trace their history back to 1953. The two companies also share the same unstinting commitment to delivering the highest standards of customer service with integrity, accountability and professionalism.

The comprehensive outsourcing contract will see multi award-winning Ogilvie Fleet provide and maintain 140 vehicles. 

Initially, legacy management of previous suppliers’ vehicles will be provided with new company cars delivered as current models on the fleet reach the end of their fleet life.

Furthermore, the contract includes a comprehensive range of additional services from Ogilvie Fleet’s portfolio including: fleet management and maintenance, fuel card management and employee driver licence validation.
