The people of Durbanville have a new-look Engen service station that boasts a diverse range of 24-hour convenience services including an Engen Quickshop, Corner Bakery and multi-branded ATM machines (ABSA and Standard Bank). The recently upgraded Engen Hillside Convenience Centre officially launched to the public on 28 November 2018.
Situated on the corner of Hills Road and Durbanville Avenue, Engen Hillside is also the new home of the Engen Training Academy, previously located in Edgemead.
Operating as a company owned service station, Engen is extremely excited to add the new bouquet of convenience offerings at Engen Hillside, which will all operate 24/7.
“Added to our new look forecourt at Hillside, planning for the new Engen Training Academy has been underway for the past 5-years and we are thrilled to launch the modern and spacious facility that provides the sort of innovative environment that reflects the Engen brand,” says Engen Head of Retail, Seelan Naidoo.
The training centre is geared to provide new Engen service station franchisees with practical on-the-forecourt training over a 2 ½ week period as well as practical standards training. In addition, the facilities provide existing Engen managers, franchisees and head office staff with a variety of courses on different aspects of the business.
The Engen Training Academy has a number of training rooms and expansive break-away areas that can be tailored to size, and accommodates 22 delegates per course.
Luzuko Tseku, Engen Hillside’s operator is a firm believer in getting involved with the community in which he operates, and is keen to support the local residents. “Having previously managed the Engen Edgemead service station, where we supported the Bothasig Community Policing Forum as well as their school feeding scheme project, we are hoping to do something similar in the Durbanville community.”
Adds Naidoo: “Engen is very excited to see our network flourishing. Our modern new training facilities will enable us to deliver on our brand promise where convenience and customer service remain key determinants of success in our industry.
“We wish the staff of Hillside service station every success and are confident that the team will have a positive impact on the Durbanville community.”
