Groupa Azoty has a number of advantages over its competitors, thanks to which the Group is ranked among the European leaders in the chemical industry, and its core competencies, capital and expert management ensure that it can systematically achieve its strategic objectives. The Board of Grupa Azoty S.A. acts as the Board for Grupa Azoty as a whole, and its members are responsible for specific areas of its operations.

With a view to increasing its market share, Grupa Azoty is planning to further participate in the consolidation of the chemical industry in Poland and Central Europe. The objective of the planned mergers and amalgamations is, in particular, to achieve synergy effects from both horizontal consolidation and vertical integration. The aim of integrating and consolidating the entities of Grupa Azoty is to increase operating efficiency and transparency, separate core activities from its other operations and, as a consequence, reduce its fixed costs. For this purpose, companies are integrated and reorganised in the production environment, a process which encompasses the following areas: design, investment execution, repairs and mechanics, automatics, laboratory services and minor chemical production along with other support areas within Polskie Konsorcjum Chemiczne sp. z o.o.
