DIGICEL Fiji has added 10 more vehicles to its fleet from Shreedhar Motors Limited yesterday.

Digicel marketing manager Sheryl Singh said the cars would be added to their existing fleet, which would be used for business and corporate department at the main office in Suva.

"The value of the cars purchased today is $440,000 and will be used by Digicel business staff," Ms Singh said.

"As the business grows, there will be need for more vehicles to mobilise our staff to better serve our customers."

The cost of a Ford Fiesta car was $44,000.

Digicel had bought six Hyundai Accent six months ago and was looking forward to buying more cars in April next year.

A partnership was also created after Shreedhar Motors Ltd joined the mobile network as its corporate customer.

Shreedhar Motors Limited national manager sales and marketing Jagdish Chand said there were other options in other car dealers but they provided quality and genuine cars for their customers.

Mr Chand said they were happy with their partnership and was looking forward to working with the mobile firm.

Shreedhar Motors Limited is the sole agent and distributor of Ford and Subaru vehicles in Fiji.
