In 2018 we filed for an EU trademark for the brand name Oilem. This was subsequently opposed by PKN ORLEN S.A., a large Middle Eastern European oil company. Although we contested this the EUIPO unfortunately ruled in ORLEN’s favour in April this year.
This was shortly followed by a cease and desist notification, of which we have no interest in fighting. Therefore, we took the decision to completely rebrand. The Oilem blog has now moved to www.fueltechexperts.com, a blog I used to run many years ago and Oilem products are being rebranded to Oilsyn (www.oilsyn.com).
I apologise for any inconvenience this has caused our customers.
