SGA expands fleet with 50 new Nissans

September, 2017

50 new Nissan vehicles will be added to the SGA fleet to expand the company’s East Africa region wide network and strengthen some of its key services which include among others response and transporting money and valuables. The first batch of four of the vehicles was received by SGA Chairman and CEO, Julius Delahaije at the company’s Kenya Headquarters on Mombasa Road. Together with Tommy du Toit, the Managing Director of Nissan Kenya, the vehicles were released in a flag off ceremony to start of their first assignments.

Speaking during the function marking the launch of the fleet expansion, Julius Delahaije, said, “We are working in partnership with Nissan Kenya to grow our fleet to ensure reliable service delivery for our clients and to meet their expectations of top quality safety features in our high-performance CIT (Cash In Transit) and response vehicles. We are expanding our fleet to manage our increasing demand for our services.”

Tommy du Toit observed, “Our partnership with SGA will not only mean selling the Nissans to the group, but we will also provide total fleet solutions including after sales services that will maximize the value of their investment.”

He added, “The Nissan NP300 hard body pick-ups fitted with strong, custom made canopies that meet SGA requirements, have proven their reliability in the tough conditions in Kenya. The steel ladder frame, chassis and heavy duty suspension cope easily with unsurfaced roads and bumpy and rocky tracks. The 2.5 litre common rail diesel engine is both powerful and fuel efficient and has a high reputation for long life.”

SGA, strives to ensure the safety of its CIT crews by providing vehicles that offer sound protection. Vans selected for CIT work are stripped and reinforced with heavy steel plates.

A computer controlled plasma cutter is used to form the sections of steel for the shapes and sizes needed for the strengthening of vehicles. Standard windows are also replaced with bullet proof glass. The cargo compartments of the vehicles can only be opened at the central control room using dynamic code locking operated by staff trained in advanced ICT security systems for monitoring all deliveries.
