Speaking on the occasion of the signing ceremony in
Karachi, Mr. Adil Matcheswala, Chief Executive of Speed (Pvt) Limited
said "The increasing importance of health, fitness and sports
participation in the lives of Pakistanis has resulted in the sharp
increase in the demand for the technologically advanced products like
Nike, which are performance oriented yet fashionable. In order to give
a new dimension to people's lifestyle and accessibility to Nike
products, we thought a tie-up with Servis which has one of the largest
network of stores in Pakistan. The pact would be an ideal match for
the two leading Footwear brands in the country ''.
Endorsing the business proposition, Mr. Abdul
Shaheed Kazi, Country Sales Manager, Servis Sales Corporation said
"Associating ourselves with a product like Nike will obviously give us
the competitive edge in a growing and discerning market, and we look
forward to strengthening this relationship by offering an excellent
variety of footwear for the consumers''.
