CMS's Polish and Swiss offices have advised the Bucher-Motorex Group on the acquisition of a lubricants factory in Poland from Circle K (the former Statoil Fuel&Retail). This is Motorex’s first acquisition in CEE.

According to CMS, "the Bucher-Motorex Group is an independent family business and Switzerland’s largest manufacturer of lubricants. The group is celebrating its centenary this year, and is currently undergoing rapid expansion. It sells its M branded products in over 80 countries."

“We are proud to assist the Bucher-Motorex Group in this important transaction, which will further strengthen the development of the group," said Warsaw-based Counsel Blazej Zagorski, who co-headed the firm's team in Poland along with Zurich-based Partner Stefan Brunnschweiler

The CMS team headed by Brunnschweiler and Zagorski advised the Bucher-Motorex Group on "all aspects of the transaction as well as on complex planning, construction, environmental and regulatory issues." Key team members included: Associate Anna Tomaschek from CMS Zurich and Partner Wojciech Koczara and Associates Grzegorz Paczek, Marcin Pasik, and Milosz Tomasik, all from CMS Warsaw.
