PETROLEUM markeing company RUBiS Energy Jamaica has sought to clear the air in the latest tensions between itself and the Jamaica Gasolene Retailers’ Association (JGRA), which has made claims that one of its prominent members is being victimised by the company.

RUBiS said the JGRA has made a number of inaccurate and unsubstantiated claims and statements in the matter surrounding the termination of a contract with the dealer of the RUBiS Water Lane Service Station, Philip Chong — is the immediate past president of the JGRA.

“In recent media reports, the JGRA claimed that RUBiS has been “unfair and callous” in its handling of the termination of the dealership licence with Mr Chong. However, RUBiS is adamant that due diligence and fairness was applied in the decision to change the business model for the Water Lane Service Station, and at no point did the company breach its contractual agreement with Mr Chong or violate his rights,” RUBiS said in a statement.

The JGRA has accused the petroleum marketing company of targeting Chong’s contract for termination because he had not supported the company during the “bad gas” saga of 2016.

The company stressed that it owns the Water Lane service station and that the petroleum products sold at the site are supplied and sold under trademarks which it owns. RUBiS further pointed out that it pays the cost of all brand advertising, communications and marketing in Jamaica relating to RUBiS service stations and products.

“The licence granted in January 2014 to Mr Chong to operate the downtown Kingston site was for an initial period of one year, and included a provision for the licence to be terminable by RUBiS without cause by giving one month’s notice. The licence, inclusive of its terms and conditions, was signed willingly by the experienced businessman,” RUBiS said.
