Veezu has extended its reach eastbound with the purchase of Panther Taxis in Cambridge and ABC Taxis in Norwich.
Panther Taxis, has been operating with more than 600 vehicles across the Cambridge area for over 30 years; whilst ABC Taxis in Norwich has built a fleet of over 340 vehicles since 1994, when the business was established.
Both areas will benefit from Veezu’s investment in the latest technology to provide an even better service to passengers and a better driving experience for driver-partners.
The aim is for Panther and ABC ‘driver-partners’ to access new technology to improve efficiency and create more opportunities to earn. They will also have the option to subscribe to a vehicle hire agreement, accident management service, plus a host of discounted services and insurance options.
Nathan Bowles, CEO of Veezu, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Panther Taxis and ABC Taxis’ driver-partners and their passengers to Veezu.
"We are focused on continually improving our service to give passengers what they want, and right now partnering with more drivers with the latest technology will help us give their passengers the best service possible.
“These acquisitions extend our reach to the east of the country and provide the opportunity for Veezu to build on hyperlocal activities to ensure the ABC and Panther brands remain at the centre of their communities across Cambridge and Norwich."
John Raynham, Director of Panther Taxis, said: “Teaming up with Veezu seems a natural transition for us – there are many synergies in the ways our businesses operate and we all have established long-standing reputations. We have always operated at the heart of our local communities, offering our support wherever possible, and we look forward to continuing to do so under this new partnership.”
Simon Callender, Director of ABC Taxis, which has delivered over a million fares in the last year, said: “This is an exciting chapter in the ABC Taxis journey. Veezu value the quality service and community support, which have always been crucial to our company.”
