Spain’s CLH Group will now be known as Exolum, as the firm seeks to focus on its future objectives of diversification, decarbonisation, the energy transition, digitalisation and sustainability.
The brand Exolum will be used for all business in Spain and internationally from now on. The brand was originally devised for a new CLH subsidiary dedicated to entrepreneurship and innovation, but after several studies and proposals, the company decided that Exolum should be used for the company as a whole.
The former CLH Group has in recent years expanded its activities beyond its traditional oil product storage and transport activities in Spain. It is now active in seven other countries – the UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Panama, Ecuador and Oman. It also stores and transports other liquid products, including chemical products in new sectors such as eco-fuels, the circular economy and the development of new energy vectors. These changes were part of a sustainable diversification process, which necessitated the new brand.
The brand has been designed to be recognised in any language and will be used in six of the countries where the company currently operates, while in Oman, it will continue to operate with the joint venture OQ Logistics.
‘We want these initiatives for diversification and adaptation of the company to be aligned with the new challenges of the sector with a change in our corporate identity that reflects our growth and leadership,’ says Jorge Lanza, CEO of Exolum. ‘This brand reflects the transformation process that we are going through internally, to align with the company’s new business models and transmit our company values. These values are innovation and trust, reflecting the open and flexible way that we face the future, promoting new business opportunities committed to the development and sustainability of the planet.’
The company was originally known as Campsa and changed to CLH in the early 1990s. It says that these names were linked to the oil sector and were well-respected. It is hoped that the brand Exolum will maintain the same level of recognition and meet the company aim: ‘We create innovative solutions to improve our world.’
Exolum currently employs more than 2,300 staff across the eight countries in which it operates. It manages a pipeline network of more than 6,000 km, 68 storage terminals and 45 airport facilities, with a today storage capacity of 11 million m3.
