Universal Lubricants sells RS Used Oil Services locations

Universal Lubricants has agreed to sell four RS Used Oil Services locations to Heritage-Crystal Clean LLC. RS Used Oil Services is a subsidiary of Universal Lubricants.

The centers, located in Monee and Spring Grove, IL, Carmel, IN., and in Middletown, OH, 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, the company said. 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 Southern U.S.

“Universal Lubricants’ future is bright,” said Jan Horsfall, CEO of Universal Lubricants. “This move will allow us to focus on our primary geographic markets, which are in closer proximity to our state-of-the-art re-refinery in Wichita, Kansas. We will retain and grow our remaining 32 facilities throughout our Southern and Midwest regions, and build on our recent expansions in Texas and Louisiana.”

Elgin, IL-based Heritage-Crystal Clean, which operates an oil re-refinery in Indianapolis, IN, and is a provider of parts cleaning and waste services, plans to retain RS Used Oil Services employees to maintain the continuity of the business.
