Exolum was one of 14 companies to win an award at the second edition of the UK-Spain Business Awards, which recognise innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurship in fourteen Spanish and British companies.
The award was presented at a virtual gala hosted by the British Ambassador, and attended by Britain’s Minister for Investment at the Department for International Trade, Gerry Grimstone, and Spain’s Secretary of State for Trade, Xiana Méndez.
The UK-Spain Business Awards, which are held in conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce in Spain and Banco Santander, recognise companies whose business activity in Spain and the United Kingdom has boosted trade relations between the two countries. Specifically, Exolum won the award in the Growth in the UK category for the significant expansion the company undertook last year in the UK.
At the end of 2020, the company added 15 new liquid product storage terminals to its portfolio, 11 of which are located in the UK. With this acquisition, Exolum has consolidated its presence in the UK market and initiated operations in the rest of Europe.
In addition, Exolum has expanded its service offering to include the storage, management and transportation of new liquid products, particularly chemical products, and has begun to operate in new sectors, such as eco-fuels, the circular economy and the development of new energy vectors.
Exolum currently employs more than 2,300 professionals and operates in eight countries, where it manages a pipeline network of over 6,000 kilometres, 68 storage terminals and 45 airport facilities with a total storage capacity of more than 11 million cubic metres.
