EKO YU a.d. Belgrade
Member of Hellenic Petroleum Group


On Friday, June 30, 2006 EKO YU, member of Hellenic Petroleum Group, officially opened a new EKO petrol station in KIKINDA. The new EKO petrol station is the first in a series of stations that include the new EKO RACING café.

The station was officially opened by the Serbian minister of economic affairs, Mr. Predrag Bubalo. 

The EKO petrol station at 74-76 Svetosavska St. in Kikinda is a modern facility designed to offer a wide range of services. The value of this Greenfield investment is 1.5 million euro.

The station has a base surface of 400m2 and offers all fuel types in 6 pump stations – unleaded, super, diesel, LPG and Euro diesel, produced in Hellenic Petroleum refineries according to the strict EU standards. The station also has a mini-market offering a wide range of car cosmetics and consumer products, a state-of-the-art automatic car wash with a wash cycle of just 260 seconds, a children's playground and EKO RACING CAFÉ.

All 18 of the station attendants have undergone special training according to EKO YU standards to ensure that they will be fully able to satisfy consumer needs, wishes and demands.

EKO RACING CAFE has a completely new concept, soon to be implemented in all other EKO petrol stations. The idea to have one RACING café at each station stems from the newly formed EKO RACING team, which already signed on such celebrated racing drivers as Pavle Komnenovic, Andrej Kulundzic and Radomir Djuric for this year's Circuit Racing Open Championship.

In a comfortable "racing" atmosphere, fans of car races and café visitors can enjoy a warm or cold beverage and relax while glancing through a specialized automobile or auto sports magazine.

EKO YU a.d. was established in September 2002 as a member of the Hellenic Petroleum Group, the leader in energy products in Greece and southeastern Europe. Today, the company employs 260 workers in Serbia and operates through a network of 15 petrol stations: from Subotica in the north to Vranje in the south of the country, and plans to continue expanding in order to render its services available in all segments of the market for oil and oil products.
