Marquard & Bahls Acquires the Company Wilhelm Schliemann

Since June 6, 1950, the company Wilhelm Schliemann, founded in 1888, belongs to Marquard & Bahls GmbH. According to management, the primary motivation behind the acquisition is to incorporate Wilhelm Schliemann's lubrication oil business into that of Marquard & Bahls. Another reason is that the newly purchased company can be a further instrument for use in export business.
