Ela Motors CEO, Takeshi Abe when officially opening the branch said Ela Motors had a long standing relationship with Enga.
However, he said the decision to open a spare parts operation in Enga was a business decision that had taken two years to consider.
“The future would be decided by business,” he said.
Meanwhile, Enga Governor Sir Peter Ipatas said although it was a small ccasion, it marked a watershed moment in the history of business in the province.
He likened it to the establishment of BSP in the province and urged all the people of Enga to buy genuine Toyota parts in the province.
In turn, he called for all purchases of Ela Motors goods by Engan businesses including PJV to be registered in the province for VAT calculations as well as to provide the company with the evidence of Enga's financial ability to expand and increase its presence.
Businessman Yaswa Kome spoke on behalf of Enga Toyota owners and congratulated Ela Motors on its decision.
Ela Motors had sponsored Enga Mioks for a decade and although it ceased, it is still providing vehicles to the colleges in the province.
