OW Bunker announce plans for US expansion to complete global reach of their marine bunkering services
OW Bunker, one of the world’s leading suppliers and traders of marine fuel, announce its intention to launch new operations in the US. With an anticipated commencement date of May 2012, the move will provide the company with a complete global offering for its customers. OW Bunker already has a significant presence in Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and the Middle East, and has delivered sustained expansion and growth over the past five years.
OW Bunker will launch its first trading operation in Houston, with further plans to expand on the East and then West Coast. The US office will also act as an internal purchasing centre for the whole OW Bunker Group, ensuring that international customers have access to the best products at the best prices, that are delivered on time, when and where they want them.
Hans Staal, recently a manager with OW Bunker Malta, will be the Branch Manager of the new operation.
Commenting on the announcement Götz Lehsten, Executive Vice President, OW Bunker, said:
“Expanding into the US is a natural move for OW Bunker as we look to further consolidate our global leadership position. We have a presence in every other major market around the world, and we know that launching operations in the US provides real value to our international customers who want to be able to deal with OW Bunker representatives wherever they are in the world.”
