Our History

The very beginnings of the company can be traced back to 1922. At that time the company produced petroleum, Vaseline and petroleum-based resins. After five decades the company became part of Petrol Ljubljana, which was then the fastest rising company in the oil industry.

In 1985 used oil regeneration was discontinued, with only the more ecologically acceptable production processes remaining. Five years later a complete renovation of all blending facilities, packaging line and storage places took place.

In 1991 the production reached a record of 12 kt of produced oil, with 50 employees on premises.

In 2008 the MAPETROL laboratory was built, which today still provides the highest possible oil quality, meeting all of the highest world oil standards. The laboratory performs various in-depth raw material analysis, R&D of new products and offers lab services to external partners.
