Given the highly regulated nature of our petroleum industry, there are only a handful of petrol station brands in Malaysia. Soon, the list will receive a new member as a brand called FIVE is planning to open several new petrol stations very soon according to a recent report by China Press.
While the brand might be new, the company behind FIVE, Seng Group has actually been in the business for the past 49 years. According to its official website, the company begins its journey as petrol station operator in Mentakab, Pahang back in 1971 before expanding further into other fields such as property development, constructions, plantations, and transportations.
The report didn’t mention the amount of FIVE petrol stations that the company will launch as well as their locations and fuel supplier. However, it did point out that Seng Group will not rebrand its existing stations which are predominantly BHPetrol-branded.
Several of these new FIVE petrol stations will apparently begin their operation starting from March onwards. So, expect to hear more about them very soon.
