The star petrol stations are an important part of the international ORLEN family


In future, it will be communicated very clearly that the star petrol stations belong to the PKN ORLEN S.A. multi-energy group. That is why ORLEN Deutschland is now putting the eagle's head as the trademark of ORLEN next to the star of star.

Elmshorn, 23rd of August 2021 – "It's really nice here" – following this motto, from the end of August, advertising spots on many TV - and social media channels will show how pleasant the star petrol stations are as very special neighbourhood meeting points. The appealing advertising spots also make one more thing clear: star belongs to the Polish PKN ORLEN S.A. multi-energy group and is part of the international ORLEN Group.

In many other countries, the ORLEN Group's petrol stations have the same name as the Group itself, ORLEN. In Germany, the nearly 600 stations have mostly been run under the name star so far. From now on, it should be clearly identifiable that the star petrol stations belong to and are part of the Europe-wide petrol station network, which extends from Germany, via the Czech Republic and Poland, right up to Lithuania.

star and ORLEN: Both brands supply the same high-quality fuels and offer the same outstanding service for their customers. From now on, the ORLEN Group is making this connectedness clear, by showing the eagle head of ORLEN together with the star – at the petrol pumps and in the shops of the stations, as well as with all communication and advertising campaigns.

"ORLEN is one of the strongest brands in the mobility and energy market in Central and Eastern Europe. From now one, we want to make it very clear that the star petrol stations are an important part of the international ORLEN family", explains Waldemar Bogusch, CEO of ORLEN Deutschland GmbH and its star petrol station brand. "With our advertising spots, we also want to make it clear to our customers that, in line with our motto, they can get 'More than just cheap fuel', they can get premium service at all star and ORLEN stations at a low price."

The TV spots can be previewed at the YouTube links below:
