Indongo Toyota are keeping busy after they were awarded the tender for 70 Nampol vehicles, at an estimated cost of N$14-million. Already 50 units have been delivered, with the remainder of the order being completed and delivered to the Police Garage by the end of November 2012.
Phillip Van der Merwe (Sales Manager) told Woema that they started working on the tender in July whilst still operating under the Ritters banner, and that the vehicles are being distributed into all the regions of Namibia for Nampol crime prevention duties.
The bulk of the order was for Toyota Hilux 2-litre and 2,7-litre single cab 2x4 bakkies, as well as V6 double cab Toyota Hilux bakkies. All the bakkies have been fitted with different accessories to meet the requirements of a functioning police bakkie, which includes canopies, blue lights, police sirens, branding, bull bars, spot lights to mention some.
Other vehicles on order were Corolla sedans, which were also branded and fitted with sirens and lights.
"Toyota Hilux s a tried and tested vehicle which has proved to be reliable in tough conditions which is why it is the vehicle of choice for Nampol who need a bakkie that can serve them well," said Phillip.
"The Indongo Toyota group are very proud to be associated with the supply and delivery of vehicles to the Government, "he added. "Our company is geared for such large orders, with back up and after sales service that meets the pre-requisites of our customers as we continually strive to maintain our high standards of commitment."
