New MD secures unprecedented orders for Goole-based O&H Vehicle Technology

Yorkshire-based emergency services vehicle builder, O&H Vehicle Technology, has secured an unprecedented level of orders within the first quarter of 2019 – just four months after new MD, Oliver North, was brought in to save the business.

The dramatic turnaround has seen O&H bring in £19million of orders - the equivalent of a years' worth of orders - within three months, solidifying the firm’s future and filling the order book for 12 months.

The contracts will see O&H build 350 Patient Transport Vehicles for Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) over the next 2-3 years; as well as 119 units for The North East Ambulance Service (NEAS). Orders have also been secured with Epsom & St Helier and G4S.

Oliver North, the firm’s MD, said that the contracts will reinforce O&H’s medium-term objective of 're-establishing themselves as a UK market leader within the emergency services sector'.

The Goole-based business is owned by private equity house, Endless LLP. At the start of 2019, the investment firm drafted Oliver North in, who has been in the emergency services sector for 15 years. Within four months, Mr North has orchestrated a rebrand and immensely improved the perception of O&H within the industry. He has also driven a "Built in Britain" philosophy, as part of ‘Project O&H 2.0’ – which is the organisation’s internal term for driving innovation, efficiency and a positive culture.

He commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have had an exceptional first quarter of 2019. It represents the wholehearted desire of our reinvigorated team here at O&H. At the start of 2019, we recognised all which needed improving at the organisation as we ‘pressed the button’ on making it happen. All aspects of O&H needed improvement but luckily, we have the experience and pedigree to have made the changes as quickly as possible.

“We will strive for continual improvement of our company to put us back to where we used to be: as UK market leaders!”
