Total enters Slovak market

THE FOURTH largest energy group in the world, Frech company Total, formally launched its Slovak subsidiary Total Slovensko in Bratislava September 17, the state-run news agency TASR wrote.

Total's strategy in Slovakia is to strengthen its market position in central Europe, Total Slovensko General Director Guillaume Larroque told journalists.

With a logistics centre in Dunajská Streda, 50 km south-east of Bratislava, Total has been supplying fuels and lubricants to retail outlets across Slovakia since May.
