Origin Americas LLC has announced the acquisition of terminal, processing and storage assets located in Baltimore, Maryland, US.
Origin Americas is a newly formed North American acquisition vehicle controlled by the Element Group, an independent physical oil trading firm. With the completion of the Baltimore assets acquisition, Origin Americas owns and operates a nearly 50 acre liquid bulk storage terminal with rail, truck, vessel loading and unloading infrastructure, as well as one of the largest used motor oil and lubricant collection businesses in the Mid-Atlantic region.
