LALE'S Millenium Group of Companies has secured the tender to manage the latest addition to Pacific Energy's fuel outlet in Drasa Avenue, Lautoka.

The newest service station opened last Friday with much fanfare as the latest addition to the Sugar City and was expected to boost business on the far-end of the city.

Lale's Millenium Group of Companies managing director Usman Ali said they were very proud to contribute towards the economic growth of Lautoka. "We are on very good terms with Pacific Energy and this is a welcome initiative for us," he said.

While he could not reveal the figures, he however said their initial investment in this venture was substantial.

Chief guest and Lautoka City Council special administrator Praveen Bala welcomed the investment and said it was good to see investors having faith and confidence in Lautoka.

"I commend the staff for their quality customer service and their hard work as this company is now one of the leading companies of the modern era," he said.

"I hope the company further strengthens its ties with the city and assists in its development."
