Interview with Paweł Szergowicz, President of the Management Board of Flukar Sp. z o. o.
Journalist: We approach the end of 2020 marked by the stigma of the pandemic. How would you summarise this passing year.
PMB: Yes it is true that the pandemic has negatively affected many areas of the economy in Poland and around the world. Although in some segments of the oil market decreases in demand could clearly be observed, for us this year ends on a positive note. This period represents two areas of fundamental change and dynamic development for the company. The first is the new production and storage facilities. We have opened a new production facility in Kędzierzyn with the most modern laboratory in the country. As a result, we are boosting production capacity and efficiency. In addition, the newly opened central warehouse for finished products with over 6,500 pallet spaces means more efficient logistics at the highest level.
Journalist: And the other area of change and development?
PMB: The second relates to sales. From the very beginning of the pandemic, our company took decisive measures to adapt to the new circumstances. We were more flexible in meeting the requirements of our customers in Poland and in so doing, we have gained many new customers. In parallel to our domestic activities, we started to intensively develop our export activities. Today, we can already boast that Revline oils are available in Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Georgia, Moldova and also Algeria and Iraq.
Journalist: So, what are the plans for the coming new year?
PMB: We are looking optimistically into the future. We will continue to improve the production processes at our two sites. The plan is, for example, to launch new, even faster production lines and new manufacturing processes. Of course, we will continue to be very active in developing sales. Our aspiration is to win more foreign distributors, especially in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.
Journalist: This is an ambitious goal. So what arguments does the company have for increasing exports?
PMB: Overseas customers appreciate our high level of product quality and flexibility. Revline oils are approved by engine and vehicle manufacturers and the production process complies with the ISO 9001 quality management system. In addition, export will be supported by our latest development project for Revline Hercules truck oils, as well as additional marketing activities. Already today, our website www.revline.pl is available in 6 languages, and descriptions in 12 languages will soon appear on the labels of all Revline line oils.
