According to Ogbeifun, the state of the art facility has been maintained at least 450 vehicles in the last one year. And the high level customer satisfaction has induced a continued referral with requests for its services coming from Port Harcourt, Abuja and Lagos.
He also spoke on how the firm’s excellent service endeared it to Toyota Nigeria Ltd., making the company its representative and dealer in its spare parts.
His words: “One of our biggest accomplishments is that Toyota Nigeria Limited heard about the workshop and actually sent a team to come and see what we are doing there, and after their visit, a couple of months later they appointed us their representatives for their warranty jobs in that region.
“Also, they have given us accreditation to carry out services on their behalf, and importantly, be a dealer of their original spare parts in that axis. So, that is the level of confidence.”
With a crop of highly-skilled graduates across different engineering disciplines and ICT, Diverse Autocare has the Edo State Government as its biggest client.
“Our biggest client is the State government. Till today, 80% of our clients are government and they have lived up to expectations in terms of payments,” Ogbeifun said.
The firm, in partnership with Edo State Traffic Management Agency, sponsored by the government, has also trained 130 drivers in the state civil service.
Ogbeifun added: “The essence is to instill new thinking and the right attitude to work in the diverse. You see that when they get that right, they are able to carry that consciousness into a maintenance culture for their vehicles and it serves all parties favourably.”
