The KMG International (Rompetrol) group is introducing its own retail concept “hey” for the first time in the stations operated by Rompetrol in the Republic of Moldova, in line with its strategy to consolidate and develop the profile activities in the Black Sea region. Its local subsidiary, Rompetrol Moldova, opened today the first Rompetrol hei&coffee gas station in Chisinau, located at the exit from the city towards the airport.
“This station is a first for the Republic of Moldova. Our objective is to maintain the quality standard of the commercialized fuels that we have accustomed our customers to since the introduction of the Rompetrol brand in the Republic of Moldova and to expand the current network in accordance with the company’s development ambitions. The new station allowed the creation of 20 new jobs as well as the involvement of local suppliers in its modernization”, said Bulat Rakhmetov, General Director of Rompetrol Moldova.
