Melbourne, Australia, 6 October 2016 –- Leighton O’Brien, a leading fuel software and field technologies company, today announced a strategic partnership with Wolftank Adisa Group, a leader in storage tank corrosion protection and leak prevention technologies.
Wolftank will become a Licensed Service Partner for Leighton O’Brien’s market-leading leak detection and fuel restoration technologies throughout Western Europe and complements Wolftank’s existing suite of tank lining technology solutions.
Leighton O’Brien CEO Reed Leighton said the partnership will enable the company to introduce and market its technology suite throughout Western Europe, as well as market and support Wolftank’s technology portfolio in the Asia Pacific region.
“There are many commercial and cultural synergies between our companies,” he said.
“Our leak detection and cleaning solutions complements their premium monitoring and cleaning offerings to provide a comprehensive, best in class technology suite to help fuel retailers optimise their fuel tank and equipment assets, prevent leaks and ensure optimum health of their tanks systems.
“There is also strong alignment with our organizational values and approach to business in terms of being leaders in safety and quality, excellence in customer experience, valuing local relationships and dedication to bringing best of breed technology solutions to market.
“Europe, like the USA and Australia, has moved to modern fuel formulations which are changing the rules for fuel retailers and preserving the lifecycle of their storage tank asset. Major oil companies need to perform divestment and acquisition testing with the best technology available and third party review to protect their interests.
Dr. Peter Werth, CEO of Wolftank said: “I am particularly happy to complete our service portfolio with this advanced technology, offering the best available solution to our customers.”

Mr Leighton said both companies were progressing market development opportunities.
