Unitor Chemicals now Wilhelmsen Chemicals
April 1, 2011 - Unitor Chemicals AS, part of Wilhelmsen Ships Service, is changing its name to Wilhelmsen Chemicals AS.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service acquired Nalfleet earlier this year. Moving forward, Wilhelmsen Chemicals AS will supply both the Unitor range of chemicals, as well as the new Nalfleet marine chemicals portfolio.
"With two brands under one umbrella, we need to make sure that the connection to our mother company, Wilhelmsen Ships Service is reinforced, hence the new name," explains Ole Wang, Managing Director of Wilhelmsen Chemicals AS.
Existing company agreements will not be affected by the name change which takes place today, 1st April, and the company will continue to operate from its Norwegian office in Kjøpmannskjær.
Wilhelmsen Chemicals AS is certificated according to ISO 9001 and 14001, and will continue to focus on a premium customer service, and ongoing development of environmentally safe quality products for the shipping market.
In addition to Unitor and Nalfleet marine products, Wilhelmsen Ships Service supplies technical services, ships agency services and maritime logistics.
