Effective March 1, 2012, the company Uhlenbruck & Kemmann Energie GmbH will commence business operations under the management of Petronord and Mr. Axel Uhlenbruck. The new company has acquired the retail businesses of the companies Hermann Uhlenbruck Mineralölvertrieb GmbH, Mülheim and Eduard Kemmann GmbH & Co. Mineralölhandel, based in Kaarst. Axel Uhlenbruck will take over operational management of the company.

The transaction is still subject to approval by the Antitrust Regulators.

Hermann Uhlenbruck Mineralölvertrieb GmbH is a long-established regional mineral oil company.
