Benchmark International Advises on the Sale of Malcolm Hughes Land Surveyors to the Ogilvie Group
Benchmark International is pleased to announce the sale of Malcolm Hughes Land Surveyors to the Ogilvie Geomatics, a part of the Ogilvie Group.
Malcolm Hughes Land Surveyors are one of the largest owner-managed land survey businesses in the UK. They specialise in BIM modelling, laser scanning, measured building survey, topographical survey, monitoring survey and dimensional control and boundary surveys. As a business they operate throughout the UK and Ireland from their home bases in Manchester and Livingston, with 22 field survey teams and a dedicated 15 strong CAD office.
Nick Hampson, Managing Director, Malcolm Hughes said: “I am very much enthused by this deal and looking forward to working with team to make Ogilvie Geomatics a major player in the industry.”
Established over 60 years ago, the Ogilvie Group began life as a construction company in Scotland. An on-going diversification strategy has seen the company successfully branch out into areas including Vehicle Contract Hire, Daily Rental, IT, Surveying and House Building. Today, the Ogilvie Group has a turnover of over £200 million, employs over 450 people and has offices across the UK. Despite the considerable growth and change that the company has encountered throughout their many years, they still retain their traditional values of a family-run business with a focus on people at its heart. Trust, transparency, accountability and reliability are the key tenants of the Ogilvie Group.
Mark McGarragh, Managing Director, Ogilvie Geomatics, said: “This is an exciting time for Ogilvie Geomatics as we consolidate our position as a major UK surveying business. The acquisition is an excellent fit for the business and broadens our range of specialist services available across the UK.”
On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties every success for the future.
