Leading indigenous Oil Marketing Company GOIL has been adjudged the Third-Largest Company in the Ghana Cub 100 list of companies in Ghana for the year 2016, and the Second-Best Listed Company at the Ghana Stock Exchange.
Speaking to B&FT following the company’s successes at the Ghana Club 100 and Ghana Energy Awards, Chief Operating Officer Mr. Alex Adzew said GOIL has and will continue to strengthen structures to ensure the company maintains its number-one status as the leading Oil Marketing Company in the country.
“We’ve done a lot of things to put the company where it is. We started with the rebranding. Further to the rebranding, we embarked on an aggressive expansion project just to make sure we increased the stock of our stations in the country, and also worked on the way the public perceive us,” he said.
“We’ve enhanced our lubricant section; we are into bunkering, we are into aviation. We also play a major role being the pacesetter in the market with regard to pricing. You put all this together and you see why GOIL is at the forefront of the downstream industry,” he added.
Mr. Adzew dedicated the six prestigious awards to the public for demonstrating loyalty and commitment to the GOIL brand. He attributed the awards particularly to the good structures set up, and the massive trust and confidence the consuming public and dealers have in GOIL.
“We plead with our faithful customers to continue showing trust in us. The good thing is that if we make profit the money stays in the country,” he added.
GOIL, was also adjudged Best Brand at the Ghana Energy Awards, while its Bulk Distribution Company, GO Energy, was awarded as BDC Company of the Year – with Managing Director and Group CEO Patrick Akorli emerging as Best CEO in the Petroleum Sector. Again, the company capped a good week of significant awards by being conferred with the Platinum Award at the Ashanti Business Excellence Awards.
