Ogilvie Fleet moves to new Northern Ireland offices

Ogilvie Fleet’s expansion in Northern Ireland has continued with the company’s move into new offices in Quay Gate House, Belfast.

The move from Dundonald, on the outskirts of Belfast, comes two years after Ogilvie Fleet increased its footprint in the province with the acquisition of Contraflex Contract Hire and Leasing.

Contraflex Contract Hire and Leasing, which was launched by John Henry in 2000, continues to write personal leasing business from its existing office on the Carrowreagh Business Park in Dundonald, Belfast, but Ogilvie Fleet aquired the residual value obligations and associated assets of the business.  

Since then, Ogilvie Fleet has focused on tripling the size of its business with public, private and voluntary sector organisations in the province.

Last year the company announced a £2.5 million investment in Northern Ireland and the move to new offices is the latest initiative as Ogilvie Fleet seeks to meet its strategic objective of expanding the business to 3,000 cars and vans operating in the province over the coming years.

Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: “The move into new offices is a direct result of our continuing fleet expansion in Northern Ireland and our need for more space to further develop the division and recruit additional staff.

“Business this year remains buoyant and we have already achieved strong growth and new contract wins from a wide range of corporate customers throughout Northern Ireland.”

    Ogilvie Fleet did not buy Contraflex, Contract Hire and Leasing, they only bought the right of a number of existing contracts but did not buy the company !!!! This statement gives totally the wrong impression and could have a very detrimental effect as Contraflex is still a fully operating company. A mention of this fact in the next edition would be gratefully accepted.

      @John Henry - Many thanks for bringing this to our attention John. I've put a link in the story above to the original acquisition story, which clearly states that Contraflex Contract Hire and Leasing will continue to write personal leasing business. I've also included a line in this story to avoid any confusion.
