The map of Spanish gas stations is gradually adding the characteristic green of the British firm BP, which in July opened four new gas stations in the province of Huelva. This means it now has over two hundred gas stations in Andalusia and 650 across Spain, with a total workforce of 900.
Although still far behind Repsol's over 3,500 gas stations and Cepsa's over 1,500, BP is a solid third place in Spain with a share of around 8%.
The company's strategy comprises growth in quality fuels. This is why it developed Active technology that removes engine dirt and can add an additional 56 kilometers to a tank of fuel and cuts 4% off CO2 emissions.
The company supplements this product selection with a loyalty program offering savings and services for customers.
Disagón group leads new openings
The four new gas stations located in Punta Umbria, Beas, Zalamea la Real and Valverde del Camino are owned by Disagón group, a Huelva family firm with gas stations in western Andalusia and Extremadura.
The head of BP España Luis Aires stated at the opening of the Punta Umbria station: "This new gas station is a sign of BP's commitment to Andalusia, where we have over 200 stations, and the special commitment to Huelva, where we are expanding our footprint with these four new facilities. We are excited to start this collaboration with Disagón and hope to continue to work with them on future projects."
Ildefonso Calderay from Disagón Group explained "we chose BP to spearhead our four gas stations due to its continuous commitment to innovation, safety and quality. By collaborating with BP we will be able to offer its quality fuels and service exclusively to all residents in Huelva on their trip along the national 435 highway and in Punta Umbria".
