Universal Lubricants recently announced that it has agreed to sell four RS Used Oil Services locations to Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC. RS Used Oil Services is a subsidiary of Universal Lubricants.
The divested operations, which are located in Monee and Spring Grove, Ill., Carmel, Ind., and Middletown, Ohio, provide used oil collection and wastewater and solid waste removal services. Universal Lubricants will retain its presence in these areas for new oil and lubricant sales.
Universal Lubricants' CEO Jan Horsfall said the decision to divest the RS Used Oil assets came after a strategic review of all 36 company facilities located across the United States.
"This move will allow us to focus on our primary geographic markets, which are in closer proximity to our state-of-the-art re-refinery in Wichita, Kan.," Horsfall said. "We will retain and grow our remaining 32 facilities throughout our Southern and Midwest regions, and build on our recent expansions in Texas and Louisiana."
Heritage-Crystal Clean, which is based in Elgin, Ill., operates an oil re-refinery in Indianapolis and Indiana and is a provider of parts cleaning and waste services. The company plans to retain RS Used Oil Services employees to maintain continuity.
