Ogilvie Construction has invested £65,000 in two new excavators as part of a programme to upgrade machinery to meet growth plans.
Groundworks Manager, Robbie Reilly and Senior Buyer, Lauren Kidd, were on hand this week to take delivery of the new machines at the company’s headquarters in Stirling.
The two JCB excavators will be brought into service immediately to meet current high demand. Ogilvie’s teams are working on a range of projects across Scotland including new student accommodation, schools and hotels.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction said:
“It is essential that our teams are properly equipped to deliver high quality buildings on time and budget for our clients. The new excavators are part of our continued investment in equipment and training to ensure that we consistently meet the high standards that our customers expect. Our on-site teams operate with over 150 hourly paid employees, rather than relying heavily on sub-contractors, with a total focus on quality.
“Our order book remains strong and we expect to see continued steady growth in operations over the next year.”
Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group, one of Scotland's most consistently successful family owned businesses. The company is over 60 years old and employs over 450 people across its various business operations.
