In 1995 the entrepreneur opened the first stationary gas station and increased the fleet to 9 gasoline trucks.  The company got the name “A-100” from the octane number 100, which is the octane number of aviation fuel.

On January 1, 2015, all stations started serving customers in the Belarusian language, thanks to a four-month training program “Mova nanova” (eng.: “Language anew”). A team of translators from this program provided their services by translating, without charge, signs and posters at gas stations, as well as more than 3,000 price tags. In addition, phrasebooks for staff were developed. These innovations contributed to the growth of sales by increasing the number of Belarusian customers, particularly among the younger generation.
