About The Bland Group
The evolution of The Bland Group over 200 years is both unique and remarkable. It currently consists of 15 diversified companies incorporating extensive property interests, land and sea transport, specialist engineering, manufacturing, marketing, travel companies and an innovative internet business. Although the Groups heritage and deepest roots are established in Gibraltar, companies operate from within Morocco, Spain and the UK. Customers span the world and the Hovercraft we design and build operate on every single continent, including Antarctica, as well as in the Arctic.
It is a collective aim to pursue excellence and deliver superior customer service that unites us as a group. The Bland Group is strongly financed with solid foundations and ultimately focused on long term horizons. With a strong entrepreneurial spirit, we are always on the alert for profitable development opportunities. Employing over 750 staff, our accounts to 31st March 2009 show liquid funds in excess of £100 million. The Group property portfolio valued at over £55 million, includes historic sites such as The Rock Hotel and Cloister Building in Gibraltar, The Beehive at Gatwick Airport and Dorset’s renowned Encombe Estate in the United Kingdom.
In early 2008, the Bland Group acquired Hovertravel, having previously held a 25% shareholding, which dated back to the early days of Hovertravel.
