Vivo Energy and Bosch have announced a pan-African agreement to expand both companies’ footprint in providing services to their growing customer base. Through the partnership, Vivo Energy and Bosch will bring together their respective expertise in the areas of automotive spare parts and services, and retail distribution of oil products.
The Automotive Aftermarket division of Bosch Middle East and Africa will distribute commodities such as batteries, filters, wiper blades and spark plugs, and quick service test equipment including air conditioning and battery tester/chargers to selected Shell service stations operated by Vivo Energy.
In addition, Bosch will market the Bosch car Service (BCS) or Express Car Service (ECS) concepts at selected Shell service stations. The initiative will be progressively rolled out, starting towards the end of 2014, on selected sites where there is sufficient market demand in all the countries where Vivo Energy operates a retail network.
