Ogilvie Fleet gains Investors in People Gold Standard

Posted on by Mark Knight

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.

New Jaguar Land Rover Retailer Building

Posted on by Matt Topham

A new state-of-the-art £8million Jaguar Land Rover retailer site in Aberdeen, operated by Peter Vardy Ltd, is nearing completion, with the stylish, modern exterior now fully constructed. The retailer is on course to open later this year, with a renewed focus on customer service, complete with a luxurious atmosphere befitting the Jaguar and Land Rover brands it will house.

Ogilvie Construction, which last year completed the Porsche Centre Aberdeen nearby, is building the facility. The building has now officially been ‘topped out’, marking the completion of the highest point of the structure; construction will now focus on making the facility wind and watertight, before installing the stylishly appointed interior.

The new retailer in Wellington Road is one of the first custom built Jaguar Land Rover sites to adopt a brand new look and feel that places an even greater emphasis on customer service and luxury.
