Petronord Acquires Söder Brennstoffe GmbH in Hessisch Lichtenau
Founded in 1924, Söder Brennstoffe GmbH is an established fuel oil and diesel supplier with a regional sales focus in the eastern part of North Hesse. The company and its distribution area ideally complement the business of Greiner GmbH, which is also active in the German federal state of Hesse. All employees and its entire fleet of vehicles will be incorporated into Greiner GmbH.
With the acquisition of Söder Brennstoffe GmbH’s operations, Petronord reconfirms its focus on heating oil as a major line of business for the Group, alongside the diversification in its lubricant and pool station business.
Petronord is a subsidiary of Mabanaft, the trading division of Marquard & Bahls, Germany. Under the umbrella of Petronord, 27 retail companies in Germany and Austria are currently active in the heating oil and diesel end-consumer business, the lubricants distribution, the operation of service stations for commercial trucking fleets (“pool stations”) as well as in the trading of bitumen, wood pellets, and natural gas.
