Firm gives back, opens $1million plaza

AS a result of the events of flooding in Nadi, the management of Paper Power wanted to move their business outside the Jet Set Town.

And according to director Praveen Deo, this was a hard decision for his family as they were originally from Nadi.

"We made an investment of approximately $1million and built the Paper Power Plaza," he said.

"We took this investment as a challenge and have chosen Nadi to have our head office in because it is our hometown and we wanted to give something back to the community."

Mr Deo said they would look at investing in some major commercial opportunities to help the Nadi economy grow.

The newest outlet was opened by Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama on Saturday night.

Commodore Bainimarama said the launch of the company's new head office was both a vote of confidence in Nadi and in the Fijian economy as a whole.

"I would like to thank our partner Paper Power for the investment that it has made in this new head office and warehouse in Nadi and the jobs it is generating for our people," he said.
