Our ultimate objective is to have one stop shop Service Stations for fuel & non fuel supplies

The Non Fuels Business broadly understood concerns the marketing and sale of Products and Services that are not fuels but are supplementary to our core business of selling fuels through our facilities including Service Stations
We are developing the non fuels business segment primarily by leasing out our premises to companies that offer services such as fast food outlets like Innscor, supermarkets, banks, tyre resellers, and pharmacies. The non fuel business facilities at our premises including Service Stations accross the Group are therefore run by contracted service providers.
As a key business strategy, the Company is rationalizing its assets including rebuidling some of our strategic facilities to provide room for non fuel businesses. This is an ongoing exercise and so far, a few of our Service Stations including Kobil Valley Arcade, Kobil Embakasi and Kenol Buruburu in Kenya to include non fuel business premises.
Non Fuel Business Development is an important business segment that the Company is keen on developing and is encouraging leading consumer goods brands and service providers to partner with our subsidiaries for these business opportunities.
Our ultimate objective in the development of the Non Fuel Business is to have Service Stations where our customers can comfortably get their entire range of supplies without having to move elsewhere.
