Neste and Kesko to continue and deepen cooperation

Finns have all become familiar with Neste Oil K-markets and the One-stop Tactic over the years.  As a part of the Neste Oil service station network, the largest in Finland, they offer a comprehensive and varied selection of services for both motorists and other consumers used to quick and easy service.  Neste and Kesko have just reached an agreement concerning continued, long-term cooperation between the companies and a significant focus on further improving the network of service stations, their concept and services. 

"I am happy to tell that our successful cooperation with Kesko is going to continue, and that we are committed to the long-term development of the cooperation.  Our goal is for an even more unified, pleasant and consumer-friendly experience in both forecourt and in backcourt services. Neste and Kesko are both significant listed companies in Finland, which makes cooperation a natural choice for improving Finnish employment and for creating additional value for our customers," says Antti Tiitola, Executive Vice President, Oil Retail in Neste Oil.

"Deeper cooperation makes it possible to develop our service stations from a more comprehensive and customer-oriented standpoint. Over the coming years, we are going to invest significantly in expanding our service station network, renewing our shop concepts and continue on the One-stop Tactic path towards a quick and most convenient customer experience for a larger number of Finns than before," says Jorma Rauhala, Senior Vice President, Grocery Trade division in Kesko.

Renewing the locations will mean that service stations will gain a more unified and bright visual look, thanks to concept developments. The stations will offer a multitude of services, high-quality Neste fuels and other car care products, and Kesko's familiar K-market product selection with its Pirkka product family, along with new café and restaurant services.
