Celebrating OSV’s 20th Anniversary – Press Release

Twenty Years and Stronger than Ever – OSV Celebrates its Platinum Anniversary
1997 was a big year. Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’ came to power, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published, and Britain relinquished its claim on Hong Kong. Amidst all of these local-global events, in West Success Andrew and Debbie Kirkley were preparing for their own big occasion: the launch of their business, OSV. 20 years on, OSV’s format has changed a little, but the business is more successful than ever before. When Andrew and Debbie renounced their respective careers, as Fleet Manager for Dagenham Motors and PA to a Technical Director at Barratt Homes, their aim was independence. Working within the popular ‘pile ‘em high and sell ‘em cheap’ model, the OSV of 1997 was a business created merely to make a living. The OSV of 2017 is a family, with an emphasis on service and long-term customer relationships.
OSV Perfect Car White
If you could design the perfect car, what would it look like? That’s the question that the UK’s leading independent car specialists, OSV, asked 1,000 members of the British public and the results aren’t necessarily what you might expect. The lights of an Audi A5, the wheels of a Range Rover Sport, and the grill of a Lamborghini HURACÁN; so far, so predictable. If you asked a man to design his perfect car, this is most likely what he would come up with. Colour it black, add in the practical but shapely roof of the Ford Edge, a handy hatchback and the wing mirrors of the Range Rover EVOQUE and you have a sensible, stylish and undeniably classy car, once the proportions have been reconfigured.
It’s been a fantastic few years for Sussex-based OSV Ltd, the UK’s leading independent vehicle supply professionals. Strong sales led to a company expansion, new premises, and four new members of staff joining the team. In late 2015 four existing team members were also rewarded for their outstanding work, with an internal promotion; if you’re looking for a local good news story, OSV has to be a strong contender. To say thank you to their customers, and to enhance their already superior service, the brand have recently invested in a serious overhaul of their website and online services, with the aim of providing a one-stop-vehicle-information-shop to make the car purchasing and hiring process simpler.

Times have been tough for business since the global economic downturn of 2008-2009, with many companies still struggling to get back on track. Bucking the trend, independent Sussex car leasing and supply professionals, OSV Ltd, have set in motion plans for significant expansion, with new premises and a growing team.
