Universal Lubricants Sells 4 RS Used Oil Services Branches

Universal Lubricants is selling four of its RS Used Oil Services locations to Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC. The divested operations — located in Illinois, Indiana and Ohio — provide used oil collection and wastewater and solid waste removal services.

Universal Lubricants will retain its presence in these areas for new oil and lubricant sales and to manage large national accounts. It also continues to provide used oil collection and environmental services through both Universal Lubricants and RS Used Oil Services across the Midwest, including the St. Louis area, and the southern United States.

This move allows Universal Lubricants to focus on its primary geographic markets, which are closer to its re-refinery in Wichita, KS. The company plans to retain and grow its remaining 32 facilities and to build on its recent expansions in Texas and Louisiana.

Elgin, IL-based Heritage-Crystal Clean operates an oil re-refinery in Indianapolis and is a provider of parts cleaning and waste services.
