Manino Waters is continuing to take its services to its customers.
Yesterday, it opened a second branch at Mulivai next to Marist School, to allow it to serve its customers on the east of Upolu and nearby areas.
The company was established in 2009, to deliver 15 litre bottles to local companies and government ministries.
The company is owned by Tusa Uialatea Victo Va’ai and wife, Tagaloa Nua Va’ai.
“We first started in 2009 at Vaitele and this is our second branch on this side of the country,” Tagaloa said.
“We’re making progress. We started from small steps and now we are growing bit by bit everyday.”
She said that the new branch has made it more convenient for its customers.
“I think that is good news for our customers,” she said. “We’re expanding our service here in Apia. It’s all about providing our customers with the best service because that is what we’re looking at. We want to give and deliver the best clean drinking water for Samoa.”
In doing business, there are always challenges and Tagaloa said they have had to overcome many.
“We came back from New Zealand in 2008 and started this business in 2009,” she said.
“There were different challenges along the way especially in terms of finances and tough competition in the industry.
“But we all know that without struggles, there won’t be progress...and we thank God for making it all possible.
“As I’ve mentioned before, this business wasn’t easy in the beginning...and that’s why we continue to thank our heavenly father for blessing us always.”
Manino Waters produces water and ice in different sizes.
“We also cater for all sorts of activities and functions from Mondays to Sundays.
“Our company can provide and supply ice, water coolers, water refill and Cool Rooms to hire at any private or public office at affordable prices.”
Tagaloa thanked their families and everyone for their support.
The company’s initial location is at Vaitele-Tai next to Princessa Supermarket.
