Share

Nippon Sanso Holdings Corporation (President CEO: Toshihiko Hamada) is pleased to announce that Supagas Pty Ltd (headquarters: New South Wales, Australia; hereinafter "Supagas"), the business subsidiary company in Australia, has signed a purchase and sale agreement with Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers (hereinafter "WesCEF") to acquire the LPG sales business in Western Australia (hereinafter "WA") and Northern Territory (hereinafter "NT") of Wesfarmers Kleenheat Gas Pty Ltd (hereinafter "Kleenheat"), which handles the LPG business of WesCEF.

  1. Background and purpose of the acquisition
    In addition to its core business of supplying LPG, Supagas is already steadily expanding its business in the supply of industrial gases and other products through 48 offices and over 200 retails in New South Wales and Queensland.
    Supagas has been aiming to acquire an established sales network in northern and western Australia and expand its sales channels. The recent proposal from Wesfarmers for the sale of Kleenheat's assets matches Supagas' business expansion plans, which led to the conclusion of this agreement.
    Through the acquisition of Kleenheat's LPG sales business, which has a stable supply of LPG to both residential and industrial demand in WA and NT for over 65 years, Supagas will expand its sales channels into northern and western Australia, realize synergies not only with LPG but also with its existing industrial gas business, and achieve sustainable boost in profitability.
