It is my pleasure to welcome you to A.Y.M. Shafa Limited, an innovative indigenous petroleum marketing company, and an amalgamation of businesses serving different sectors of the Nigerian economy.
We are a conglomerate with a noble history, but our growth trajectory has demonstrated how far the power of focus can take a vision. Beginning with incorporation on 12th July, 1996, the leadership of A.Y.M. Shafa Limited recognised that running an enterprise successfully requires a sense of purpose, ahead of expertise.
This awareness has guided our company through its growth phases; from when we built our first filling station located at Yankari Road, Tudun Gokaru Village, Alkaleri Bauchi State in 1998, to obtaining the Bulk Purchase Approval to lift petroleum product commencing 30th September 1998 from Pipelines and Products Marketing Company Limited (PPMC) following the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) licensing of our operations in 1998.
Today, we represent an impressive example of the opportunities available in the Nigerian economy as we have successfully diversified our business into other sectors, conquering new grounds in equipment importation, fleet management and sales, logistics and transportation services, energy support, financial services and haulage services , suppliers and internal public.
Over this period, we have increased our filling stations to over 100, with an even- spread across the country, into remote and far-flung places, to cater for the energy needs of the people, and support their daily activities. We have also entered into partnerships with other brands of filling stations across the country to make petroleum and allied products available to Nigerians at the official price, even during scarcity, because we are determined to be the reliable economic partner of the people.
This growth has also widened our business scope beyond retailing of Oil & Gas products to Haulage, Terminal Operations, Bulk Sales, LPG, Lubricants (Industrial, Marine and Automobile) and Equipment Importation, Fleet Management and Sales. The opportunities and enormous goodwill generated for the A.Y.M. Shafa brand in the marketplace by our service culture and organizational outlook have positioned our company for patronage-induced growth.
While we give Allah the Glory for these accomplishments, we indeed owe our clients a debt of gratitude for their patronage and encouragement over the years. Without their support, our story would not have been exciting to tell. More importantly, we give our assurance of continued innovation and quality in our operations, and welcome all to our corporate head office situated at No. B38, Jos Road/Jolly Nyame Crescent Bauchi, Bauchi State for business and possible collaboration.
