NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 8 – RUBiS Energy Kenya has officially launched into the market following the successful acquisitions of KenolKobil Plc and Gulf Energy Holdings Ltd.

We are launching an unparalleled shopping experience through our convenience store brand, RUBiS Express, by providing world-class convenience to motorists on the go, saving them time and money. We also provide a fuel card system that gives motorists total control of their fuel-related expenses through our RUBiS Card, offering convenience and efficiency when making payments at our retail outlets” said Bergeron.

“Furthermore, we are significantly investing in the development and promotion of LPG, which is a clean and affordable energy source that will support the government’s ambition for an improved quality of life for all Kenyans. We also market an extensive range of high-quality lubricants under the K-Lube and Castrol brands and our products, imported or locally blended, meet the highest specifications demanded by most automotive and equipment manufacturers” added Bergeron.

RUBiS Energy Kenya is the largest supplier of aviation into-plane refueling services for regional and international commercial and cargo carriers, and is committed to delivering quality products and services to other business sectors in areas such as industry, agriculture, aviation and road infrastructure development.

The global energy player is also looking at leveraging its integrated distribution chain to increase market share in the region.
