Mr. J.K Horgle has been in the petroleum haulage transportation business for over 40 years.
Besides his company winning some awards, Mr. Horgle has personally won several industry awards both home and abroad.
In an interview with energynewsafrica.com recently, J.K Horgle said his company retained about 700 workers despite the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic which affected business activities globally.
He indicated that his company decided to maintain all the staff for a good reason.
“On our side, we train our drivers and we spend huge sums of money in training them, especially female tanker drivers. We can’t give them all this training and ask them to go home. We will lose. People even try to poach our drivers because they are well trained,” he said.
