Caltex was named the top Petrol Station in South Africa at this year’s Ask Afrika Orange Index Awards, which took place in Johannesburg recently. The Ask Afrika Awards are the country’s longest running service awards.

In researching what determines where South Africans preferred to get fuel, the Ask Afrika survey focused on the level of emotional satisfaction that motorists felt when leaving a forecourt.

“We know that this award is owed to the men and women on our forecourts, who go out of their way to make our customers smile when they stop at Caltex service stations” said Astron Energy’s Retail General Manager, Price Njokweni. “We know that South Africans are busy; always rushing from point A to B, be it getting to work, heading off on holiday or picking up their children, that’s why we place so much emphasis on supporting our fuel attendants and developing their customer service skills.

We also believe that the quality products we offer and the great partnerships with FreshStop and the UCount loyalty programme have played big roles in this accolade.”
