Puma Energy, an oil marketing company, has reposed confidence in the economy after pledging to almost double its fuel retail outlets from the existing 60 to 100 by close of the year.
The doubling of the fuel stations is part of an aggression plan announced earlier in the year.
Under the plan, the company intends to open fuel retail outlets in all the regions in Ghana, in a bid to reach out to as many customers as possible.
“With almost 60 stations nationwide, we are steadily expanding our network to ensure that we bring quality fuelling experience at a very competitive price to our customers,” the General Manager of Puma Energy Distribution Limited, Mr Myles Bouvier-Baird, said.
Consumer price campaign
He was speaking at the launch of Puma ‘Yenkor Nkoaa’ consumer price campaign on June 9 at the Bortianor Service Station near Kasoa in the Central Region.
The campaign is aimed at rewarding customers of Puma Energy for their loyal support for the past one year since it entered the Ghanaian fuel storage and distribution market through the acquisition of shares in UBI Holdings.
Mr Bouvier-Baird said the campaign was to celebrate one year of entering the Ghanaian market, and added that this“campaign requires no minimum purchase requirement, no raffle, or short codes.”
According to him, once a customer purchased fuel from any of the service stations of Puma Energy, he or she would instantly enjoy a discount price as well as other giveaways such as T-shirts, and key holders.
“Puma Energy is here to ensure that our customers keep going until they reach their respective destinations, after all, our mantra is fuelling the journey. It is also the perfect opportunity to invite other motorists who are yet to enjoy the Puma experience to come on board,” he said.
In that regard, the manager indicated that fuel prices at the pumps had been reduced drastically at all Puma Energy service stations across the country.
“We have been and will continue to be the cheapest in the market. There is no raffle, just drive to any Puma Energy service station and enjoy a huge discount at the pumps,” he added.
Poised to deliver quality
For his part, the Deputy General Manager of Puma Energy, Mr Kwesi Amanor, said the company was poised to deliver quality and affordable fuel in the country.
“Puma Energy is determined to ensure that customers are always guaranteed of high quality fuel at extremely competitive prices but at the same time, we are investing in network expansion so that customers can find us at even more convenient locations nationwide,” he said.
Mr Amanor observed that Puma Energy was relatively new in the Ghanaian downstream distribution oil industry, but the global oil marketing company’s brand history dates back to 1929.
“We have steadily grown to have a presence in 47 countries across five continents, with Ghana occupying a very special place in this network,” he added.
