Birmingham’s oldest Taxi firm’s head office is getting a fresh new makeover! The TOA Taxis head office, located in Harborne, is undergoing a £75,000 refit along with the installation of greener technology.
The TOA Taxis head office first opened back in 1978. The late Mayoress of Birmingham at the time, Freda Cocks, originally declared open TOA’s head office in Harborne with the unveiling of a plaque. It has been some years since the head office has had a much-needed refit and with our growing success and growth, we are now able to invest a considerable amount into it.
As well as getting a fresh new look with fully re-plastered and re-painted walls, new carpets and new fire doors, the office will have new greener technology installed throughout. Eco-friendly LED lighting has been installed in the office with PR Sensors on lights that turn on and off automatically when motion is sensed, the fresh new look and paint has meant the entire office is now much lighter and so the amount of artificial lighting to brighten the place has been reduced and new double glazed windows have been fitted to help heat the office. In addition, the TOA's head office now has a new UPS System with an uninterrupted power supply which continues working if there is a grid failure; this is backed up by a new, fuel efficient back-up generator.
We are delighted with the progress of the refit so far and we look forward to operating in our completed, greener and more efficient head office!
