Con­tin­u­ing its tra­di­tional lead­er­ship in the Turk­ish fuel mar­ket and lu­bri­cants and chem­i­cals mar­ket, Petrol Ofisi was founded dur­ing World War II, at a time when fuel short­age was on the rise and Turkey was com­pletely de­pen­dent on for­eign re­sources. Ever since its es­tab­lish­ment with a staff of 9 peo­ple on Fe­bru­ary 18, 1941 as a na­tional brand in Turkey, Petrol Ofisi has as­sumed the role and duty of "pro­vid­ing the prod­ucts re­quired within the scope of its ac­tiv­i­ties and de­liv­er­ing them across Turkey, as well as pro­vid­ing sup­port in all ar­eas, in­clud­ing agri­cul­ture and in­dus­try, to strengthen and bring Turkey into the fu­ture".

Founded as a lo­cal and na­tional brand us­ing Turkey's eq­uity, Petrol Ofisi has gen­er­ated en­ergy for the so­cioe­co­nomic de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try and so­ci­ety since that day. Tak­ing pride in ev­ery step it takes to move Turkey for­ward, Petrol Ofisi has be­come an ex­em­plary in­dus­try leader that is much more than a mar­ket leader, which gives pri­or­ity to peo­ple and tech­ni­cal safety.

Shortly it has be­come a brand of pride in the coun­try

Petrol Ofisi has a fe­male, fire breath­ing wolf sym­bol on its logo, which is based on the fe­male wolf Asena, one of the main el­e­ments of Turk­ish mythol­ogy. With only 9 peo­ple, it quickly be­came able to ren­der its ser­vices ac­ces­si­ble for the most re­mote cor­ners of the coun­try. Through these in­vest­ments, it has paved the way for ma­jor de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tives in Turkey in var­i­ous fields, in­clud­ing agri­cul­ture and in­dus­try. Af­ter be­ing founded by the state, Petrol Ofisi be­came a na­tional trea­sure and source of pride thanks to its in­vest­ments and was con­verted into a Joint Stock Com­pany in 1983 and pri­va­tized in 2000.
