MOL instead of Lotus

MOL instead of Lotus

At the beginning of December, there was a reshuffling of the Polish petrol station market.

A few days ago, the provisions of the agreement concluded between the Polish concern PKN Orlen and the Hungarian concern MOL entered into force. As a result, the Hungarian concern became the owner of 417 Lotos stations and thus took the third place in terms of size among retail fuel sales networks. This, however, does not seem to satisfy the representatives of MOL, who announce rapid and dynamic development. Several actions are planned for this purpose. First of all, to complete the Lotos station rebranding process as soon as possible. In addition, the new player on the Polish fuel market intends to convince drivers with the slogan “better quality and better prices”, the Fresh Corner offer, which will offer non-fuel products, a loyalty application and electromobility.

Under the above-mentioned agreement, PKN Orlen will buy 143 petrol stations from MOL in Hungary and 39 in Slovakia. In this way, Orlen will start operating on the indicated markets.

It is worth recalling that the agreements in question are the result of decisions taken by the European Commission, which we wrote about here.
