Hitachi Capital celebrates milestone

Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions is celebrating 25 years in fleet leasing, marking the milestone with an event for all staff with a family fun day at Newbury Racecourse.

More than 350 guests, comprising staff members and their families, enjoyed all the hospitality the racecourse has to offer, with afternoon tea, food, drink and nominal racing bets provided with the compliments of Hitachi Capital.

Over the last 25 years Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions has gone from strength to strength, having started with five staff members and now employing more than 260. With an established commercial vehicle division in Trowbridge and a driving instructor vehicle leasing centre in Leicester, the company is now turning over circa £250million per year and features in the top 15 of the FN50.

Simon Oliphant (pictured), CEO at Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, said: “It’s a great pleasure to offer our staff and their families a fun day of celebrations at one of Newbury’s most famous locations. We really appreciate the hard work and effort they commit to the business and believe they are a testament to our longevity as a company. We’re very much looking forward to another 25 years.”

Customers will be invited to a separate event held at Newbury Racecourse later in the year.
