Rompetrol Downstream, the retail division of the KMG International Group in Romania, has opened two new integrated service centres on major highways in Romania.
The investment required for the construction of the two gas stations amounted 6.5 million USD. The two are part of a 12 gas stations package that Rompetrol will open on the A1 Highway, with a total estimated investment of more than 40 million USD.
"Rompetrol continues the development of the gas stations network on the A1 highway under a new concept, offering the clients a large variety of products and services:
Refueling, charging stations for electric cars, shop, cafe, terrace, green areas, playground, parking lots. Practically, the station is no longer just a place where you refuel your car, but a place to relax, where drivers can regain their energy to get safely back on the road.
At the same time, Rompetrol continues the development of the hei brand and the new store concept with the hei&coffee brand extensions, such as the stations at Giarmata, and coffee&gourmet, where our customers will be able to enjoy a hot meal, with a variety of fresh products.
Six of the 12 gas stations on the highway will operate under coffee&gourmet concept", said Bauyrzhan Nugumanov, general director of Rompetrol Downstream.
