ORLEN Paliwa – largest multifuels sales organisation launched

The recent merger of ORLEN Paliwa and ORLEN GAZ has resulted in the formation of one of the largest sales organisations in Poland capable of delivering a comprehensive offering of fuel products to wholesale buyers. This move continues the effort to modernise the wholesale fuel distribution channel within the ORLEN Group. The newly-established company will operate as ORLEN Paliwa.

The multi-stage process of changes implemented in the recent years was launched to meet the needs of customers expecting comprehensive services and a varied product offering. After ORLEN PetroCentrum was rebranded to ORLEN Paliwa in November 2012, the next major step was the takeover of wholesale of fuels and fuel oil to a group of small- and medium-sized enterprises and wholesalers previously served directly by PKN ORLEN. In 2015, ORLEN Paliwa merged with ORLEN PetroTank, and the consolidation process was ultimately concluded with the merger with ORLEN GAZ.

These measures have been designed to capitalise on the best practices used in both companies. The formation of an entity offering such a broad range of operations and favourable commercial terms will allow us to apply economies of scale to state-of-the-art logistics and sales solutions, equipping the company with a competitive edge that comes with guaranteed quality and unparalleled versatility, said Andrzej Niedbalski, President of the Management Board of ORLEN Paliwa.

ORLEN Paliwa is currently a wholesaler of gasoline, diesel oil and heating oil produced by PKN ORLEN. The company also sells and distributes high-quality propane, butane and propane-butane mixtures as the leading supplier of LPG to the largest network of service stations in Poland and Central Europe operated by PKN ORLEN. The company serves several thousand institutional and retail customers. It also directly organises the BAQ Fuels Programme, which ensures constant monitoring of the participating service stations, and the QGAZ Programme dedicated to service and LPG stations. ORLEN Paliwa has seen recognition in the most important and prestigious Polish business rankings, securing 12th place in the List of 2000 Polish Companies and 13th place in the 500 Largest Companies in Poland ranking tables, both organised by the Rzeczpospolita daily, and continues to reinforce its position every year.
