OSP Group, the Gillingham-based construction site personnel recruitment company, has signed a renewable 12 month corporate partnership with Gillingham Football Club, the only Kent-based club in the professional Football League. The club stayed up in League One last season and has high hopes of progressing well this season. OSP Group becomes one of five official club partners, which includes the Kent Messenger. OSP Group is based in Gillingham and provides construction companies in London and the southeast with over 400 skilled site workers. The company has been growing due to the need for new buildings and infrastructure and has sales of around £8m.
Costas Pieri, Director of OSP Group: “As a Medway local and Gills supporter I am delighted to get right behind Gillingham FC and play a part in the future success of the club. OSP Group is a local family business and so we’re right behind the Gills. And as with our business, achieving success is all about having the right team and attitude!” Paul Scally, owner and Chairman of Gillingham FC: “I am very pleased to have Costas and his team as a key corporate partner. I can see that we have much in common, not least our professionalism and determination to win!” OSP Group has also made a £1,000 donation to the club’s official charity ‘Take Heart’ which provides an expert team of cardiac surgical, anaesthetic and intensive care personnel to perform operations on children with congenital cardiac conditions in Sri Lanka.
