Overton Automotive Team News: Ziggy’s Story

Overton Automotive are always finding ways to promote and support its employees where possible.

Overton Automotive Team News: Ziggy’s Story f

A prime example of someone who has excelled incredibly since joining Overton Automotive is Ziggy. He joined the company from Romania, where he had been working previously and was new to Aberdeen and the UK. He had a vast amount of experience back in Romania, which made him an ideal candidate for Overton’s depollution and stripping bay.


Once Ziggy found his feet, his brother also joined the company, and they made a formidable team in their bay. It quickly became clear to the company that Ziggy was a highly skilled and conscientious worker. All the while, with very limited English (Overton Automotive are now pleased to say he is fluent in Aberdonian), he quickly progressed within his role.

After a few years, Ziggy passed his class 1 lorry licence with the company’s support and regularly helps out on the road recovering vehicles. Then just two years ago, he was promoted again, this time to the position of machine operator. Ziggy spends his days on Overton Automotive’s specialised machine, expertly ripping the wire, engines, and boxes out of vehicles. It’s a highly skilled and precise job, and Ziggy has proven himself to be an invaluable member of the team.

Ziggy loves the variety of work at Overton Automotive and says:

“I’ve really been able to broaden my skill set with support and training from the team. I feel like I am part of the family as they have really looked after me and my family since we moved to the UK.”

Here’s what Overton Automotive’s Sarah Allan has to say about Ziggy.

“We’re so grateful for Ziggy’s hard work, dedication, and continued growth within our company. We’re proud to have employees like Ziggy who are committed to their craft and the success of our business. Thank you, Ziggy, for all that you do!”
