“Gas station of the future”
The OMV filling station network has been an important anchor point for many people since the beginning in 1990. Fuels provide the necessary mobility and since 1994 the VIVA shops have been available as local suppliers with high quality standards. Especially since the outbreak of the Corona crisis, OMV has been manifesting its role in ensuring security of supply in Austria every day. “I am very much looking forward to my new role as head of the Austrian petrol station business, which I will take over in challenging times. We are in the midst of an energy transition and a change in mobility that provides solutions for e-sharing or alternative drive sources, for example. In order to continue to have a relevant point of reference in the lives of mobile people, we are orienting ourselves to the changed customer needs, ”says Gernot Goller, head of the OMV filling station business in Austria. “Our expertise in shops and restaurants, for which we primarily purchase Austrian products, also makes us an important local supplier. Combined with our additional services such as banking or postal services, we have the potential to develop into a multi-service hub as the petrol station of the future, ”emphasizes Gernot Gollner.
