Moreover, the year 2017, compared to the previous year, was the period of increased investments. UNIMOT not only began to develop dynamically the AVIA franchise network and Tankuj24.pl project, but also adjusted the organization to service the expanded scope of operations, among others, through investments into the personnel and IT. Thanks to an increased sales volume in the main operating segments the Company has maintained its leading position among Polish private fuel distributors.
