JIBU TECH PLATFORM

Our Story: JIBU TECH Platform was formed on the backdrop of significant challenges faced by George who was running a retail station as an independent retailer in Limuru, Kenya and faced significant challenges in supply and distribution from majorly three fronts- speed, efficiency and trust/security in the whole process of securing his product demand.

George was inspired to face the challenges head on and along with Amach and other partners developed a petroleum trading platform for the downstream segment that would address these needs and with long term view to not only structuring a product that would cater for independents but effectively serve all players in the industry in the downstream sector.

JIBU is a locally developed and managed commodity trading platform (originally petroleum focus) that will revolutionise local trading integrating sales and customer relationships and enhancing value across selling relationships and safeguarding margins in an ever shrinking commodity trade scenario.

Supply shocks or disruptions coupled with erratic margins volatility in the retail business Inspired the founding of the business as it seeks to address the challenges faced by ALL players in the (petroleum) retail sub-sector with a trade marketing solution that captures the needs and wants of both ends of the divide (interests and needs of buyers and sellers are fully met on the JIBU TECH platform).
