UNIMOT, a multi-utility capital group, is planning to join AVIA International association, thanks to which it will obtain the right to use the AVIA brand name in Poland. The goal is to develop retail sales of fuels.
The AVIA International association, which gathers operators who manage about 3000 fuel stations in the whole Europe, has decided to accept UNIMOT as a member of the association. Thanks to this UNIMOT will obtain a right to use in Poland the trademark AVIA, recognized in the whole of Europe, at a retail sales of fuels.
The previous model of fuel distribution by UNIMOT consists in supplying fuels mainly to institutional customers, such as transportation companies, public transport authorities. Thanks to the contract with AVIA association, UNIMOT will gain a possibility to gather independent petrol stations under a strong brand and supply fuels directly to petrol station – says Robert Brzozowski, the President of the Board of UNIMOT. In the near future we want to start the process of building a chain of petrol stations under the brand name of AVIA. We will encourage the owners of independent petrol stations to join our AVIA chain. AVIA has been successfully operating in Germany, France, Switzerland, Holland and Spain. Jointly, in the 14 countries of Europe about 3000 petrol stations operate under the name of AVIA. We believe that this model can be successfully developed in Poland and UNIMOT is an ideal partner for AVIA to carry out this plan – adds Mr Brzozowski.
Joining the AVIA association is another step of UNIMOT aimed at expanding its presence in the area of retail sale of fuels. Recently, the company has announced its plans to launch a mobile application Tankuj24, which makes it possible to buy fuels on-line.
