Acquisitions support expansion
To expand its regional service offerings, two acquisitions were made in 2018 allowing customers in the electricity transmission and distribution markets as well as high-energy demanding industries to benefit from a comprehensive and tailor-made transformer service package also in Germany and Continental Europe.
EOS was founded as a 50:50 joint venture between the electrical oils businesses of Carless Refining & Marketing Ltd and Castrol UK Ltd back in 1999. However, the business originated in the UK after World War II, when crude oil was a rare and a valuable resource. The country’s’ industry had to find solutions to re-use the existing raw materials and the beginning of the EOS “Closed-loop” model was born. Today, customers are still utilising this business model based on the increasing awareness that existing resources can be recycled and treated in a sustainable manner.
Back then and now, EOS is responsible for all insulating oil needs – from mobile processing and regeneration to transformer oil collection, sample testing and vacuum oil filling.
The electricity supply industry and large industrial energy users benefit from the EOS products and services as they help to extend transformer lifetime. Today, EOS is celebrating its 20th anniversary. © HCS Group GmbH
