Gazprom Neft bitumen-derivative products launched on the retail building-materials market

St.Petersburg, November 4 -  Neftegaz.RU. Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials - operator of the Gazprom Neft bitumens business - has concluded a Cooperation and Strategic Partnership Agreement with Russia’s leading DIY retailer Leroy Merlin Vostok. The agreement was signed by Dmitry Orlov, Director General, Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials, and Erwan Dupuy, Deputy CEO, Leroy Merlin.

Gazprom Neft waterproofing products will be made available for retail through the Leroy Merlin hypermarket network in Moscow, the Moscow Oblast and other regions of Russia, with the main products being mastics and primers - typically used on low-rise residential buildings - sold under Gazprom Neft’s own “Brit” trademark. Both parties have agreed to put in place a system for sharing market information and engaging in joint marketing and customer promotions.

The first batches of Brit products have already been made available at Leroy Merlin’s MaxiPRO professional construction outlets, under this agreement.

Gazprom Neft’s product range runs to more than 200 kinds of high-tech bitumen-derivative products, many of which are actively used in high-rise construction and in utilities and housing development projects. Partnering with the leading building-materials retail chain, and moving into a new retail market for the bitumens business, will help increase sales, geographically, by further widening consumer usage of our products”, said Dmitry Orlov, Director General, Gazpromneft-Bitumen Materials.

Gazpromneft Bitumen Materials is a subsidiary of Gazprom Neft, specialising in the production and sale of bitumen products. The company currently holds a leading position on the Russian bitumens market, as well as being one of the world’s top-10 bitumen producers.
