RUBIS Energy has acquired Kobil and Samfuel Zambia Limited.
Speaking at the launch of the Rubis Ibex Hill Service Station in Lusaka on Wednesday, Rubis Group managing director for East Africa, Jean-Christian Bergeron said Zambia was an important market for his company.
He said Rubis not only saw significant growth potential in the country but also many ways in which they can make life’s journey better for Zambians.
After acquiring Kobil and Samfuel, Rubis will now boast of 40 service stations across the country.
“This is our vision and the journey has now begun. As you can see and you will continue to see, our Kobil and Samfuel stations are one by one becoming Rubis. And this transformation has much more in store for our customers than just a new name and logo,” he said. “First and foremost, we are upgrading and modernising our service stations such as the one in which we find ourselves today. We want to warmly welcome you with the highest quality of products in state-of-the-art facilities offering a safe, clean and modern environment.”
Bergeron promised quality service to customers.
“I would like to take this opportunity to give particular thanks to our valued service station team members without whom this journey would not be possible. And in our service stations we will be adding our innovative Rubis Express Shop concept, providing a world-class convenience shopping experience to save you time and money,” said Bergeron. “But we don’t stop there. For individual as well as commercial customers, we offer the Rubis Card which provides a convenient and secure payment solution for both fuel and shop purchases, and a fuel discount to thank you for your loyalty. And we will not stop there. We will continually seek to introduce new and unexpected innovative products and services to better serve you.”
The launch was attended by French Ambassador to Zambia Francois Goldblatt and Ministry of Energy director Mandona Miyova, among other dignitaries.
