IMPORTANT EVENTS IN 2015

FAIRFORD ́S VIEW

Axel Group operates in a competitive niche within the petrochemical industry. Despite the fact that the lubricating grease industry is a flat market our view is that additional market shares can be attained both in existing markets where we are currently present as well as in new geographies. Fairford believes there is further value to be created through both organic growth, industry consolidation and improved operations and we are happy to support Axel in all aspects long term in the same manner as we’ve done since 1997.
