ISTOBAL won the Danish tender of the oil company OKQ8 for the supply of car wash equipment and ISTOBAL esens® chemicals. The Danish subsidiary, ISTOBAL Danmark, will be the sole supplier to one of the largest Nordic fuel companies under a three-year contract (from 2017 to 2019). The Spanish leader in automotive car wash and car care solutions was already awarded the same contract three years ago. OKQ8 will rely on ISTOBAL’s machines and products again for its facilities in Denmark.
The tender includes the supply of rollovers and numerous accessories such as vacuum cleaners and mat cleaners. Obtaining Norway’s SWAN ecolabel for ISTOBAL esens® chemicals has allowed the Spanish company to become the sole supplier of chemicals for the next 3 years.
In their recent visit to ISTOBAL in L’Alcúdia (Valencia), the retail managers of the oil company -who have already placed some machinery orders- had an opportunity to see the new ISTOBAL M’NEX32, presented in the last edition of Autopromotec in Bologna, which will be marketed in the coming months.
OKQ8 is one of the most important oil companies in Sweden and Denmark. Their European network includes 4,400 service stations under different brands: OKQ8, F24, Tango, and Q8.
The contract with OKQ8 consolidates the presence of ISTOBAL in Denmark, which is already the Group’s third European export market, with sales in the country increasing by 50% in 2016 compared to the previous year. In addition, the Group’s commercial subsidiary in Denmark, ISTOBAL Danmark, was the second delegation in the company with the largest turnover after the Spanish subsidiary.
