progressive company is taking a lead in revving up Rochdale as a town that means business! The Revilo Group has signed up as a Rochdale Ambassador – a scheme designed to harness the expertise and experience of leading local business people to put Rochdale on the national map.


Headed up by our very own local entrepreneur Lee Collins, the Revilo Group has itself found real success in Rochdale.


With a £200,000 refurbishment of its offices on Bridgefold Road nearing completion, the Revilo brand has seen tremendous growth since its inception in 2014; following on from Mr Collins selling his previous group of companies to a UK plc.


The company now operates in the investment, automotive, property development, new house building, estate agency, and insurance and mortgage sectors. Revilo Automotive, the largest of the group’s businesses by turnover, is a car buying service exclusively for owners of premium and specialist vehicles.


Mr Collins said: “There is no doubt that Rochdale is on the up as far as business is concerned. With fantastic access to the major motorway links you would be hard pressed to find anywhere with better connections. On top of that, the property here is great value for money and investment in the town centre makes it an even better place to live and work.”


The Rochdale Ambassadors scheme, supported by the Rochdale Development Agency (RDA), brings together the national networking activities of well-connected business people. Ambassadors spread the word about Rochdale’s resurgence regionally, nationally and even internationally.


Mr Collins is keen to ‘do what he can to help’ as the Revilo Group continues to move forward at a pace with the imminent opening of a new ‘business hub’ and further recruitment.


“We are actively looking to add to our 60-strong team and we always aim to recruit locally whenever possible,” said Mr Collins. “For us, the key attribute is attitude rather than formal qualifications. We welcome applications from any positive, enthusiastic people and currently have positions available across all sectors including joiners, sales advisors drivers and group buyers.”


Revilo joins a growing list of successful local businesses to join the Rochdale Ambassador scheme, including Zen Internet, Simkiss Control Systems, Tetrosyl, Nomical, and Hanson Springs.
