Vinod Patel & Company Pte Limited (VPCL) held its Makita Trade Night show on Wednesday at the company’s head office in Centre Point.

The last Makita Power Tools and Equipment show was done four years ago.

The Makita team from Australia delivered and demonstrated their tools to the customers and Vinod Patel team.

VPCL chief operating officer, Neelesh Singh said the whole idea of the event was to bring in products that were quite innovative and would support the industry.

“It is safe to use and it brings in the efficiency and productivity that really gives the edge in completion of a project at any site,” he said.

“As an innovation driven organization, Makita and Vinod Patel launched the 40-volt cordless machines that really build up the speed of getting the work done from a smallest tool that may look like a toy, but it’s a tool that can fix your roof.

“Right from that to demolition hammers, to concrete cutting machines, and so on and so forth that really builds or gives the edge in the construction industry.”

Mr Singh said Makita and Vinod Patel were partners to the industry and they were a family that believed not only in selling and retailing, but also providing solutions.

“We also believe in creating a partnership relation not only with our customers, but with the suppliers so it’s an end to end and that is why we’ve got Makita here at our service Centre,” he added.

“Now we are offering affordability in terms of any contractor or those who want to own Makita machines with pride, they could also buy it through hire purchase, which is a flexible payment term extended up to two years.”

The show was also done at the Western Division and would be conducted in the North next week.

Makita Australia’s export manager, Russell Bael said the event was all about representing Vinod Patel in Fiji as an exclusive Makita dealer for Fiji.

“Also, Makita wanted to showcase to the customers of Fiji some new products that Makita has in their range,” he said.

He said Makita had been dealing with Vinod Patel for more than 40 years.

“Makita in Australia has only been represented for 30 years. So, it’s been a very long relationship with Makita and Vinod Patel and it’s (Makita) 100 plus years and it’s only going to grow from there,” he said.

Mr Bael also said they had brought some new 40-volt tools.

“The 40-volt power tools are the next level in cordless power tools. Everyone is very familiar with 18-volt power tools and the range is massive,” he said.
