The company, which has more than 1,500 service stations in Africa, has an ambitious plan for rapid expansion and it is, therefore, harnessing the reputation of the Shell brand to bring high-quality products to the widest audience and set new benchmarks for innovation, convenience, service and reliability in areas where it operates.
For instance, in 2014 the company invested in Ghana, opening 24 new service stations across the country.
The Chief Executive Officer of Vivo Energy Group, Mr Christian Chammas, who was in the country last week, cut the sod for the expansion of the Airport Shell Service Station in Accra.
The project, which formed part of his two-day visit to the country, was witnessed by retailers and top management officials of Vivo Energy, including the Chief Finance Officer of Vivo Energy Group, Mr Johan Depraetere.
The project, which will be adjacent the present station, when completed, will have a quick service restaurant; an extended forecourt with 18 filling points; an ATM farm; a first class tyre service centre; an ultra-modern drive-through washing bay; and specialised shops such as a pharmacy, gift shop, travel and tour operator among others.
Addressing guests at the ceremony, Mr Chammas said the Accra Airport city was growing fast and noted that as a company committed to the changing needs of its customers, Vivo Energy was expanding the Airport Shell Service Station to meet new trends and the growing demands of the dynamic community.
“We are investing in our most visited station, and upgrading it to meet world class standards and to offer our customers the best of fuels, services and convenience retailing”, he said.
“Our aim is to provide an exceptional retail experience at each and every one of our service stations, reaching more people with better products and services wherever we do business. We are investing substantially in making this ambition a reality by refurbishing existing service stations, building new (with shops) and improving operational excellence across all of our sites,”he said.
