We would like to brief you about ourselves, our business, its establishment and history. PRR Travels started functioning on the 30th of December 1994. In the beginning, we were rendering our services to individuals and other small-scale industries based in Ambattur Industrial Estate by outsourcing the entire fleet from private vehicle owners and other existing tourist car operators.
Gradually, by studying the business and increasing our client base by motivating our team to be very customer-friendly and to be very focused towards excellence in rendering our services, we became a name to reckon with. We purchased our first car during 1997; by 1998 we added major corporate clients like SPIC, MFL, and CPCL (formerly MRL) as our clients and our fleet started growing rapidly.
In the due course, by 2004, we added several corporate clients like TECHNIP, Ericsson, TPL, and ONGC. With this, our operational focus became corporate-centric and we became a major stakeholder in the smooth operations of these corporate houses by ensuring their manpower reaches its destinations on-time, every time.
In 2005, we shifted our office premises to our wholly owned building at Anna Nagar. We added bus & van operations to our business and started adding these vehicles to our fleet. With an intention to be recognized on par with the then existing players like, K.P.N., SRS, and Parveen Travels, we also started operating Omni-buses to Dindigul and Theni. Subsequently, we received orders from SPIC Pharma & Delphi TVS to operate buses and vans for their office transportation. Since we are professional and committed towards customer satisfaction, with many MNC from SEZs were lining up requesting our services, we refrained ourselves from the Omni-bus business to concentrate on our core competency, which is, Corporate fleet operations.
With orders from ASAHI Glass, IJL, Royal Enfield, Corborundum, GKN Drive line & SRF Ltd, our operations expanded to a very large scale. In the consequent year, with more orders from Infosys, Capegemini, and Suspa pneumatics, we also became the single and sole independent vendor for the R&D Center of Renault NISSAN, Mahindra City, Chenglepet. Even during the recession, we have done well during the last financial year with excellent service rendered to various industry sectors like, Software, IT, Automobile, Chemical, and Telecommunications.
Apart from the exclusive agreement with RENAULT NISSAN AUTOMOTIVE (Car Plant), we have entered into several agreements with APOLLO TYRES (Tyre Manufacturing Unit), Amalgamation valeo at Oragadam, Kancheepuram District , and MRF Tyres at Arakkonam and Capgemini at Mahindra City, Mrf Tyres - Ark, Mrf Tyres - Tvr, Ashok Leyland Deere, Doosan, Gamesa, Hexaware.
Currently, our fleet consists of over 260 vehicles spanning cars, vans, and buses; our business operates 24 hours with staff working on shifts, with supervisory staffs and individual GM for managing operations, maintenance, and accounts. Our operations team is divided into nine difference zones consisting of maintenance and driver teams and independent zone-in-charges maintain the timing, routing, and sundry maintenance issues. We have our own garage and parking lots at four different locations around the city with mobile maintenance team inspecting the vehicles with routine checkups and en route. We provide adequate training on road safety and periodical medical checkup for all staff-in-charge including the drivers. Our staffs are covered under Group Insurance apart from regular vehicular insurance. With this dedicated team and stable infrastructure, we always assure outstanding professional service to our corporate clientele. We are confident of emerging as a major bus operator for Corporate in Tamil Nadu.
