As a wholly owned subsidiary of Marquard & Bahls, Oiltanking maintains its headquarters in the city centre of Hamburg, Germany.
Oiltanking is committed to a highly decentralized organization that gives maximum commercial freedom to its worldwide subsidiaries. This has fueled our extraordinary growth and has produced competent and entrepreneurial managers at all levels of the organization.
At the corporate centre, a lean team of about 30 experts with extensive field experience coordinates Oiltanking's worldwide activities. We provide technical and operational advice and arrange financing and legal support to our profit centers around the world. A business-development team initiates new ventures in untapped market segments or in the few regions where Oiltanking has not yet established a presence.
The relatively small size of our corporate headquarters ensures optimal communication and fast decision making.
