We can offer Shell Slackwaxes again!

*Three years ago, we had to unfortunately inform everyone that the Shell base oil plant in Pernis (Rotterdam) would shut down beginning January 2016. A direct consequence of this closure was that not only were there no base oils anymore, but the production of the Shell Slackwaxes (SPO,LMO,MMO) and Shell Microwaxes (LMP,MMP,HMP) would also come to an end. Naturally, this was a big shock for us and for all our customers.

However, as of this week our situation has changed and the world suddenly looks very different! Over the last two years Shell has invested in their base oil plant in Bukom (Singapore), which has resulted in the availability of Slackwaxes (SPO,LMO) from this location. The great news is, the quality of these products will be exactly the same as before and volumes are guaranteed for long term.

Shell has chosen and appointed Alpha Wax as the distributor of these Slackwaxes in Europe and the United States. As of the 1st of Juli we can offer you SPO and LMO from our tank terminals in Rotterdam and Houston. As you can imagine, we cannot wait to contact you and inform you of this great news! *
