The corporate network

Headquartered in Hamburg’s HafenCity as part of the company group Marquard & Bahls AG, we can draw on decades of experience in the oil & gas sector and trading operations.

Mabanaft is the trading unit of Marquard & Bahls and thus the parent company of Mabanol. The Mabanaft Group as an independent supplier concentrates on physical oil trading. Its core business includes regional trading and wholesale, retail business to end users, operation of service stations and bunkering. In addition, the Group is involved in trading liquid gas, liquid and solid biofuels.

Through its subsidiaries and representative offices, Mabanaft is well positioned in all important regions worldwide.

This foundation allows Mabanol to count on the expertise of its parent company to optimise its distribution of lubricants and other products. 

Our market-and customer-oriented strategy combines high standards in regards to product quality with the expectation to instantly adopt the latest industry trends. 

Our sales network of domestic and international partners and end-users includes experienced wholesalers, workshops, haulage companies and customers in the industry sector. All of these trusted Mabanol users can rest assured to not only receive products with fantastic value for money but also reliable support in their day-to-day operations.

Premium Lubricants for
Premium Performance

Our brand stands for high quality in the field of lubricants and ancillary products, complying with technical requirements laid down for automotive and industrial applications, agriculture as well as construction business. The high quality standards set for our products and services is underpinned by the successful certification of our management system in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 standards.


The norm ISO 9001:2015 developed by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) is an internationally recognised quality management standard that provides transparency with regard to responsibilities, processes and policies which are standardised and implemented within the framework of ISO requirements and regulations. Companies and organisations that are certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 guidelines have to ensure that customer satisfaction standards are defined and followed, offering products and services that comply with very specific demands.

Mabanol's progressive management system determines processes and responsibilities as well as efficiency enhancement measures within the company on the basis of the seven defined principles of the quality management system. We strive to implement the targets set by our company policy and adhere to these guidelines to build trust and meet our customers' demands and expectations for products and services.

The quality standards of our automotive lubricants are further underlined by our ties to ATIEL and the voluntary participation in the EELQMS (European Engine Lubricant Quality Monitoring System) which implies a commitment to market, develop and manufacture those engine lubricants for which compliance with ACEA Oil Sequences will be claimed. By drawing on the technical know-how of its membership, it promotes consensus on key technical issues, ensuring that engine oils continue to contribute to improved wear protection, deposit control, lower emissions and fuel economy. Various Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) only grant approvals to lubricant marketers that comply with ATIEL standards and that are listed in the EELQMS.

We have the most stringent demands for our services and product range as our objective is to ensure that requirements and expectations of distributors and end-users are met.
