Sixt leasing partners up with Ogilvie Fleet to offer full-service leasing in UK
The partnership means that Sixt clients will now have the option to take a product that meets European inter-company counterpart standards and an individually tailor-made fleet solution. Sixt is set up to offer firms one direct sourced integrated solution from car hire through to full fleet management.
Sixt leasing and Ogilvie believe that the continued expansion of many enterprises across Europe will result in an increasing demand for international fleet solutions.
Christian Rehbein, director international development, Sixt leasing AG, said: 'For many companies the United Kingdom is an important country in their international expansion. Now Sixt Leasing is able to offer individual vehicle fleet solutions in the UK to our current European clients. This is a significant step forward in these relationships.'
Sixt leasing operates in 42 countries worldwide and the entire leasing fleet of Sixt worldwide stands at around 160,000 vehicles.
Ogilvie Fleet, with headquarters in Stirling, Scotland, is a privately owned provider of contract hire, leasing and fleet management solutions for UK companies operating vehicle fleets of up to 2,000+ units. The firm's fleet today totals almost 10,000 vehicles, making the company one of the largest independent contract hire and leasing specialists in the fleet sector.
Nick Hardy, sales & marketing director, Ogilvie Fleet Ltd, said: 'As we continue to develop our business model and take a greater share of the 50 to 250 fleet sector it became essential to offer a pan-European solution. Partnering with Sixt Leasing makes perfect sense to both parties as we share common thinking regarding the need to provide a high quality service and substantial online solutions for our clients. We now have what we believe is the most unique offering in the UK and throughout Europe.'
He added: 'We already have substantial interest from clients with European operations and I'm confident our alliance with Sixt will be a phenomenal success.'
