Private hire and taxi group, Veezu, has acquired a business in the south west of England, in a deal establishing its fourth taxi hub in the UK.

Newport-based Veezu has acquired V Cars, which has operations in Bristol, Bath, Chippenham and Swindon, from founder Dave Scaramanga who remains in the business in a senior management role.

The taxi group has three existing taxi hubs throughout the UK operating under their local brand names – Dragon Taxis in south Wales, A2B in Solihull and Birmingham and Amber Cars in Leeds.

The establishment of the fourth taxi hub not only gives Veezu a presence in the south west for the first time, but also increases the number of drivers it provides dispatch services to across the group by 40%, up to approximately 3,500.

Joel Hope-Bell, chief executive of Veezu, said: “A core element of our growth strategy is to increase the number of regional taxi hubs in the Veezu group and the acquisition of V Cars sees us continuing to deliver on this.

"The south west is of strategic importance to Veezu as it further bolsters our presence along the M4 corridor and enables us to operate in additional major cities and towns, which offer substantial growth potential.”

V Cars also operates as Abbey Taxis in Bath and Streamline in Bristol. It has been in business for more than 25 years and handles approximately 50,000 journeys every week.

Mr Hope-Bell added: “V Cars, Abbey Taxis and Streamline are all well-established businesses in their own right.

"We are delighted that they are now part of the Veezu group and we are looking forward to working closely with Dave to continue to develop and grow the businesses and deliver a ‘best-in-class’ service to all passengers and customers.”
