With five newly established Engen Service Stations opening in the first half of 2021 and a further five in the pipeline, Engen continues to expand in Botswana and spread its unique retail fuel and convenience customer experience across the country.
The managing Director of Engen in Botswana Chimweta Monga said he is convinced that Engen will meet the customers demand as the company spread its wings.
“As always, convenience and customer service are key determinants of our success and we are excited to bring these new sites to market and also announce additional expansion plans,” he said
As a leading marketer of fuels and lubricants, Engen currently operates 64 service stations and 43 Quickshop convenience stores across Botswana.
The company pumped 202 million litres of fuel from its retail forecourts in 2020, in addition to 97 million litres to commercial customers and 2.2 million litres of lubricants.
With five new sites opened in the past seven months and more to come, Monga is bullish about Engen’s growth plans.
“We also have five sites currently under construction, which makes us the only fuel company in the country undertaking such an aggressive retail expansion amidst a global pandemic,” he told the media
“Our ambitious retail growth plan is a further indicator of our commitment to sustainable growth in the country.”
All five newly streamed sites offer Engen Primax Unleaded 93/95, Engen Dynamic Diesel 50ppm and various quality Petronas and Engen lubricants.
“Our superior quality fuels and lubricants leverage the research and advanced technology offered by our parent company, Petronas, who provide Engen with the technical expertise responsible for designing, developing and delivering the fuel, fluid and lubricant technology solutions that powered the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team to seven consecutive FIA Formula One World Constructors’ and World Drivers’ Championships
“This technical partnership ensures that the fuel and lubricant products we as Engen offer our customers have withstood the ultimate Formula One testing ground.” said Monga.
The General Manager of Engen’s Commercial and International Business Division, Drikus Kotze, said Botswana is an integral part of Engen’s growth ambitions in southern Africa.
“It’s about never standing still and continually seeking relevant and innovative ways to meaningfully impact our customers’ lives by offering quality petroleum products and exciting convenience services, which is why we are excited to aggressively and sustainably grow the Engen footprint in the region,” Kotze noted.
Engen operates a retail network of 230+ service stations in six countries, namely Botswana, the DRC, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mauritius and Namibia, as well as a further 1 000+ sites in South Africa. The company focuses on the commercial fuel and lubricant sectors in these countries and has reseller agreements for lubricants in several other sub-Saharan countries.
