Helping Group Lotus cross the finishing line

Group Lotus recently announced a strategic corporate partnership with OCS at Autosport International. OCS, a corporate partner who delivers an integrated facilities services solution to Group Lotus plc’s Norwich headquarters, will have a key opportunity to promote its brand and services through association with Lotus Racing motorsport activities. Over the next five years, the OCS logo will appear on team clothing and on Lotus GT cars in the British GT Championship and GT4 Endurance races.

“The synergy between our businesses made OCS a natural corporate partner,” said Tony Schulp, commercial director for Group Lotus. “We are both aiming for high performance and making continual improvements through innovation.”

OCS has provided a bespoke document management service, with full graphic design, print management and mailroom capability, to the group’s Hethel headquarters for two years and will now also deliver an additional range of support services. These include building services with grounds and track maintenance, cleaning of offices and production and design areas, catering services at ‘Just Dine’ staff restaurants, and trackside executive hospitality services.

Tony Schulp added: “2012 will be a time of unprecedented investment and growth for Group Lotus and we need a partner who can develop with us in all aspects of the business. OCS has already demonstrated that they can deliver service quality and efficiency. We are confident that they will provide the required flexibility and speed of delivery to meet the demanding changes of our business environment.”

OCS MD, Martin Gammon, said: “This innovative deal clearly demonstrates the importance we place on building strong partnerships with clients which have the flexibility to evolve. I firmly believe that this five year corporate partnership between Group Lotus and OCS will be a winning formula.”
