Operating in 21 West and Central African countries, LOXEA was created 11 years ago to offer short and long term rentals for corporates. This is now the name for Tsusho Capital Kenya and is the new CFAO mobility solution.
Welcoming guests for the launch function, Ambassador Dennis Awori, the Country Delegate of the CFAO Group, stated, “The Group motto is ‘With Africa for Africa’ and is a commitment to the continent’s economic growth and industrialization together with creating jobs and offering products for the growing middle class and corporates, we are also offering solutions that are convenient and make the lives of our customers better.One of these solutions is provided by LOXEA.

Erwan Catto, the Managing Director LOXEA Kenya said, “Our ambition is to become the preferred mobility partner for corporate customers, with key focus on safety, cost management and quality.”

Our strength is to count on an existing Pan African customer base enjoying the LOXEA customer experience and to be able to offer a large portfolio of brands and models from our exclusive CFAO dealers Toyota Kenya and DT Dobie.

He explained the benefits to the customers by pointing out that the customer only pays for what is used and has a mobility solution which is always available. This enables corporates to focus on their core business by outsourcing the management of fleets to experts with adequate capacities. As a result there is a saving from high quality services covering fuel efficiency and safety.

For large fleet customers, LOXEA can also provide full fleet management services including driver supply, driver management, pool car management, car sharing and safety programs including training and in-plant support.

New CFAO was born from the acquisition of CFAO, an African focused French Conglomerate, by Toyota Tsusho Corporation to create a Group covering the whole continent of Africa.

CFAO is a key player specialized in distribution in Africa and the French overseas territories, and a partner of choice for major international brands.
The Group is a market leader in automotive and pharmaceutical distribution and continues to grow in the production and distribution of consumer goods, new technology and renewable energy solutions.

CFAO has a direct presence in 36 African Countries and provides a gateway to 49 of the 54 countries that make up the African Continent.

The group currently employs 15,000 people in Africa, a number that will shoot up to 21,000 people following the acquisition of the Unitrans Motors Group, one of South Africa’s largest Automotive Dealer Networks with 99 dealerships, representing many leading brands.

In Kenya CFAO has eight companies and employs over 1300 employees operating in four key business fields, the main one being “Automotive”.
In the automotive business, the Group brings value across the full chain of the products and the services, involving car assembly, sale of new cars, after sales, parts and resale of used cars through a network of 56 outlets.

The Two CFAO Dealers; Toyota Kenya and DT Dobie have unique strengths and history, and bring together a very comprehensive portfolio of reliable car brands (Toyota and Suzuki for Toyota Kenya; Volkswagen and Mercedes for DT Dobie) and a wide Dealer Network across the country.

As part of CFAO industrialization strategy, the local assembly of the most popular car models within our product ranges (Polo, Tiguan, Hilux, Landcruiser pick up) strengthens the competitiveness of the offer.
