Total Malawi has said it will rebrand 12 more service stations to reach 40 percent of the company’s network in the country by end this year.
Speaking on Saturday when Total officially opened a rebranded and refurbished Causeway Service Station located at Mandala in Blantyre, the company’s managing director Michel Malatino said they are still going on with the programme which started last year regardless of challenges.
“Despite hard times with the depreciated kwacha and lower margins for fuel companies we believe we need to invest and go on with the programme. We believe in the future of this country so we are very proactive and very bold to offer Malawians the best service stations in the world. It’s an ambitious programme because we are a targeting one station per month,” he said.
He added that the cost of each service station ranges between $200 000 for mere image revamping of a service station to $1 million for a completely new one.
According to Total, the new service station has a double skin tank and a leak detector to protect the environment. It also has a car wash bay and will soon have an ATM.
