The traditional leader in the fuel, lubricants and chemicals markets: Petrol Ofisi
Petrol Ofisi, one of Turkey's most established brands, takes the lead in many areas today. Founded in 1941, the company has contributed to the development of both the country and the society since the first day. Today, it takes justified pride of being on
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.
