Partly through its subsidiaries, Slurink is active in the purchase and sale of fuels, lubricants and related articles for the shipping industry (inland shipping and fisheries). It supplies both traders and business end-users. There are bunkering stations in Amsterdam, Dordrecht, Hansweert, Lobith, Rotterdam, Vlissingen and Zaltbommel.
Rembrandt M&A advised the shareholders of Slurink in the sale to Catom. Catom is a fast growing company in the trade, distribution and sale of fuels and lubricants. The company focuses on three primary activities in the downstream segment of the oil market: wholesale, sale to end users in the business market (reselling) and operation of petrol stations with shops (retail). The major part of the turnover stems from wholesale and reselling. In reselling, Catom is market leader in the Netherlands and its ambition is to achieve that position in the other two primary activities as well.
