Bashundhara Group, country’s leading business conglomerate, has launched ‘Bashundhara LP Gas Premium’, aiming to meet the demand for fuel in the country.
Each cylinder of the LP Gas Premium has a capacity of 12.5kg with 20mm valve.
The launching ceremony of the new brand was held at Glass Water Convention Centre of Bashundhara City in the capital on Thursday.
Bashundhara Group Deputy Managing Director (cement, BLPGL and SICL) Engineer AKM Mahbub-Uj-Jaman unveiled the new cylinder as the chief guest at the event while Bashundhara Group Senior Advisor (research and development) AR Rashidi and DMD Mostafizur Rahman were present as special guests.
General Manager (marketing and sales) of Bashundhara LP Gas Md Nurul Alam presided over the function where Bashundhara Group officials were present.
In his speech, AR Rashidi said, “Our gas cylinders are popular since its introduction. The prices of petroleum products are controlled internationally. We are planning to supply cylinders at a lower price. We are trying to work for the welfare of the country.”
AKM Mahbub-Uj-Jaman said, “It is difficult to make progress in this sector due to absence of necessary co-operation from the government. Neighbouring country India provides subsidy in the sector.”
He hoped that the new cylinder will soon be popular with common people.
“The cylinder of Bashundhara LP Gas Premium is of international standards. It is user-friendly and safe to use. It is an exclusive cylinder and has been designed to meet the expectation of the consumers as well as businessmen. The price of gas is dependent on the international market price. But we always try our level best to keep the cylinder price reasonable and lower than the price of any cylinder gas available in the country,” said AKM Mahbub-Uj-Jaman.
About 200 dealers and distributors of Bashundhara LP Gas from different parts of the country attended the launching ceremony.
