Total Jordan ties up with Jaber Group
Amman, January 11, 2009
Total Jordan has signed an agreement with Abu Jaber Group, granting Total Jordan full supervision and management rights over his service station located in Al Yadudah, South Amman.
The station will be fully rebuilt according to the highest international standards in terms of safety and environmental protection, said a company official.
“Total Jordan is going to Amman South and there will be other developments in Amman East and Zarqa in the near future. Our plan is to extend our network all over the Kingdom,” said managing director of Total Jordan Arnaud Guichard.
“In our pursuit to positively serve the Jordanian economy in general, and the (petrol) service sector in particular, our alliance with Total Jordan fills us with a notable sense of accomplishment,” said Abu Jaber Group’s Dr Raouf Abu Jaber.
Total has been present in Jordan for over 10 years through its lubricant brands Total & ELF. Total Jordan was established in August 2007 in the Kingdom and is a 100 per cent subsidiary of Total.
With nearly 16,500 service stations worldwide, Total is No 1 in Western Europe refining/marketing, and No 1 in African marketing. Total also has a strong presence in the Mediterranean Basin and is moving into growing markets in Southeast Asia.
The Abu Jaber Group, on the other hand, is one of the oldest family companies that have served Jordan’s economy for decades.
In addition to their real estate development projects, especially on the Amman-Airport Highway, they are engaged in numerous activities.
In the industrial field they have the Jordan Brewery, founded in 1955, Soft Drinks Manufacturing started in 1970, and the Jordan Paper & Cardboard Factories taken over in 1999. – TradeArabia News Service
