Thrifty Car and Truck Rental and AUS Mechanical Services have united with the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce Inc to supply a car for staff to use. .

The vehicle, a Mitsubishi Outlander, is for staff to use to travel throughout the Pilbara when visiting PHCCI members, and features signwriting by chamber supporter Signswest.

Thrifty’s Pilbara area manager David Peters said the partnership with the chamber was a perfect fit because of Thrifty’s vision to boost support for local organisations.

Mr Peters said Thrifty Port Hedland and AUS Mechanical Services had been longstanding supporters of the chamber but wanted to support them further.

“We want to build on our community engagement and lend more support to businesses and community groups in the region,” he said.

“We wanted to provide a vehicle to the chamber to support their outreach and connection with local Port Hedland businesses.

“In our discussions with the chamber, it was decided that a car was the perfect way for us to be part of that.”

Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce executive officer Michelle Scott said members would benefit from improved accessibility and visits from the chamber.

“We are very excited to have this partnership with Thrifty to help support the local business community,” Ms Scott said.

“The vehicle will be well utilised for travel to all our PHCCI members. It will enable us to more readily connect.”

“As a not-for-profit organisation, support from Thrifty means we can keep operational costs down, allowing more investment to go towards developing our members into strong local businesses.”
