Veezu has made a major acquisition by adding Sheffield’s biggest private hire operator City Taxis to its portfolio.

The deal is the third major deal in the past few months for Veezu, having added Panther Taxis of Cambridge and ABC Taxis of Norwich last October. Veezu also has major hub operations in Bristol, Leeds, South Wales and the West Midlands.

City Taxis adds a further 2,000 cars to the Veezu fleet, taking the combined total to more than 10,000. Managing director Arnie Singh is staying with the business and will take on a senior role within Veezu.

Nathan Bowles, CEO of Veezu, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Arnie and City Taxis into the Veezu Group. City Taxis is a high-quality business in Sheffield and surrounding areas. I’m really pleased that Arnie will join our management team at Veezu, playing a pivotal role in the next growth stage of our business.”

Arnie Singh said: “We are incredibly enthusiastic about what joining Veezu means for City Taxis moving forward. I am confident that joining a larger business with a hyper-local focus will help to keep local taxi companies in demand without compromising on technology or service levels.”

Last year Veezu announced plans to introduce uniform Veezu branding across its operations, starting with its Bristol subsidiary V Cars. Other brands, including Amber Cars, Dragon Taxis, A2B Radio Cars and Go Carz, are expected to adopt the Veezu name as the company aims to build a national presence.
