As of 1 January 2015, Simon Storage has been rebranded as Inter Terminals. This brings together the Simon Storage operations in the United Kingdom, Germany and Ireland under the same trading banner as Inter Terminals, Denmark.
The Simon Storage and Inter Terminals businesses are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Inter Pipeline Ltd, the petroleum transport, storage and natural gas liquids extraction business based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Inter Pipeline Ltd is one of the largest energy infrastructure businesses in Canada, and ranks among the top 50 companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The combined Inter Terminals business represents one of the largest independent bulk liquid storage businesses in Europe, with more than 3 million cbm of storage capacity located across 12 terminals. The terminals in the UK, Germany and Ireland provide storage and distribution facilities for a wide range of hazardous and non-hazardous liquids, including oils, chemicals, biofuels and waste oils. Terminals are located at the coastal ports of Immingham, Teesside and Tyneside in the UK, on the Shannon estuary, Ireland and on the Rhine River at Mannheim, Germany. In Denmark, Inter Terminals operates deep draft coastal terminals which provide build bulk, break bulk and custom blending services for distillates and heated oil products.
Inter Terminals will be led by Martyn Lyons, who will be promoted to Chief Executive. With over 25 years’ experience in the tank storage sector, Lyons is well known within the industry and continues to serve as chairman of the UK Tank Storage Association. He succeeds Richard Sammons who is moving into a new role as executive chairman. In Denmark, Uffe Kirk has been promoted to managing director, succeeding Aage Faurholt who in turn becomes chairman of Inter Terminals, Denmark.
