BP Europa SE covers the countries Austria, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland and Switzerland.
It was founded on 30 April 2010 by merging the bp country organisations in Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria and Poland together with the Deutsche BP AG. In April 2011, bp (Switzerland) AG has been integrated into the SE. It is not set up in the shape of a holding structure but as one company operating in seven different countries. In each country business is run by a branch in the country itself. The company’s registered office is located in Hamburg, the administrative head office is based in Bochum.
The foundation of BP Europa SE will lead to a distinct simplification of legal structures, Corporate Governance activities and also of internal finance and tax processes.
