In 1980, our Managing Director Mrs. V. A. Samson started as a dealer under Texaco Nigeria Ltd. (now MRS Plc.) distinguished herself by winning the most priced Texaco Plc Best Dealer Award in sales, marketing innovativeness amongst others for the Latin American/West African Region. The BOVAS group was established in 1980 and started operations as an indigenous independent petroleum marketing company.
BOVAS opened her first service station in Osogbo, the capital city of Osun State in Nigeria in 1991 as part of the efforts to assist the government in making petroleum products more accessible to everyone. Presently, the Company operates One Hundred & Nineteen (119) service stations around the country and has several more under various stages of construction, which are to be delivered at intervals. A Liquefied Petroleum Gas Plant was added to the group in 1995, to cater for the domestic gas customers primarily in the southwestern part of the country with Twenty (20) operational gas skids.
