New fleet for G4S

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 17 – G4S has announced a multi-million shilling investment in new vehicles to boost its competitiveness in the Kenyan Market.

While flagging of a batch of 30 new vehicles, G4S Kenya managing Director John Wheater said the company was committed to enhancing effective services as Kenya presented an important market to their business growth.

Mr Wheater said the new vehicles were part of Sh200 million capital outlays for G4S fleet improvement that began last year.

In addition to investing in resources in Kenya, the firm plans to introduce a raft of new services in 2011, as well as venture into new markets to forge its business forward.

“We are keenly looking into growing other lines of business in this market including tapping into outsourced government contracts of non-core functions; this is in anticipation of the implementation of the Vision 2030 strategy that envisages a leaner and more efficient government,” Mr Wheater said.

The new fleet will be used for the company’s Courier, Alarms & Systems, Dog Section and Cash in Transit (CIT) services.

Each unit will be equipped with immobilizers and tracking technology, offering further onboard security and safety.
