Headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, International-Matex Tank Terminals (IMTT) is an industry leader in the handling and storage of bulk liquid products through its ownership and operation of 19 terminals throughout North America. The terminals handle petroleum, biofuels, commodity/specialty chemicals, and vegetable/tropical oil products for customers including refiners, commodities traders and chemical manufacturers and distributers.
International-Matex Tank Terminals (IMTT) was established by James J. Coleman, Sr. in 1939 with the purchase of the Avondale, Louisiana terminal. Over the following 75-years the Coleman family expanded the enterprise to become one of the largest 3rd party providers of bulk liquid storage and handling services in the United States.
Between 1975 – 1999, the business was operated in a partnership with Van Ommeren (now Vopak).
On January 1, 2000 the Coleman family acquired Van Ommeren’s ownership interest and became the 100% owner of IMTT.
In May 2006, Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation (NYSE: MIC) acquired a 50% interest in IMTT.
In July 2014, MIC acquired the remaining 50% interest in IMTT. Today, IMTT is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Macquarie Infrastructure Corporation, which owns, operates, and invests in a portfolio of infrastructure like businesses throughout the United States.
