Christian Flach, Greenergy CEO said: “Following the earlier announcement of Trafigura’s proposed acquisition of Greenergy’s European operations, we are delighted to now include our Canadian supply operations as part of the transaction. Trafigura’s financial strength will provide us with a robust platform for growth across Canada, helping us to expand our infrastructure facilities in strategic locations, bringing road fuels closer to our customers.”
