HOUSTON (ICIS)--Netherlands/US-based aromatics brokerage firm Excalibur Brokering and US-based aromatics brokerage firm West End Energy announced on Thursday that they have entered into a business partnership.
Under the international partnership, the two companies have formed Excalibur Brokering US, which will be a division of West End Energy.
"In an increasing global marketplace, the formation of an international brokerage team comes as an advantageous partnership to the benefit of customers in both the US Gulf Coast and northwest Europe," the companies said in a joint statement.
The formation of the partnership allows Excalibur to offer live brokerage services in the US and Europe.
But its not the first time that Excalibur has tried to enter into the US aromatics market.
Two years ago, Netherlands/US-based Excalibur Brokerage Group was looking to establish a foothold in the North American benzene and styrene markets and found little success.
