Great co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment signed be­tween Petrol Ofisi and Chevron

Lubricant World - - CONTENTS -

The agree­ment signed be­tween Petrol Ofisi, the leader of Turkey's fuel and lu­bri­cants sec­tors, and Chevron, one of the world's lead­ing oil and lu­bri­cant com­pa­nies, cov­ers a long-term strate­gic part­ner­ship. This co­op­er­a­tion has a holis­tic scope that in­cludes the li­cens­ing, pro­duc­tion, dis­tri­bu­tion and mar­ket­ing of Chevron's lu­bri­cant prod­ucts un­der the Tex­aco brand.

In scope of this deal, Petrol Ofisi and Chevron have started joint work on tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion prepa­ra­tion. Si­mul­ta­ne­ously, Petrol Ofisi will also start dis­tribut­ing and sell­ing Chevron's Tex­aco-branded pas­sen­ger car lu­bri­cants, heavy duty lu­bri­cants and in­dus­trial prod­ucts, with its 16,000 points of sale all around Turkey. Once the rel­e­vant prepa­ra­tions are com­pleted, it is planned to start the pro­duc­tion of Chevron's lu­bri­cant prod­ucts in Turkey in 2021. All of the prod­ucts that are pro­duced in Turkey will be dis­trib­uted and mar­keted by Petrol Ofisi un­der the Tex­aco brand.

This agree­ment signed be­tween Chevron and Petrol Ofisi is not the first col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the two brands. Since 2014, Petrol Ofisi has as­sumed the dis­tri­bu­tion and mar­ket­ing of Chevron's marine lu­bri­cants. The mu­tual trust and sat­is­fac­tion from this suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion has been one of the key fac­tors that laid the ground for this long-term agree­ment be­tween Petrol Ofisi and Chevron.

“This deal is also an in­di­ca­tor of Chevron’s trust in Petrol Ofisi and Turkey”

Selim Şiper, CEO of Petrol Ofisi, pointed out Petrol Ofisi's goal for pro­vid­ing qual­ity prod­ucts and ser­vices and its cus­tomer-ori­ented ap­proach. “In the lu­bri­cants sec­tor, of which we are the leader with this ap­proach, we of­fer ideal so­lu­tions to Turkey's needs in this field with our 16,000 points of sale all across Turkey, and our wide prod­uct range cov­er­ing more than 400 prod­ucts that we de­velop in the Petrol Ofisi Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter – POTEM and pro­duce in our plant in Der­ince. We are now ex­pand­ing these ideal so­lu­tions even fur­ther with Chevron prod­ucts. Our long-term and wide-rang­ing co­op­er­a­tion with Chevron is, in a sense, a good in­di­ca­tor of Petrol Ofisi's suc­cess in pro­duc­tion, dis­tri­bu­tion and mar­ket­ing in the field of lu­bri­cants.

This sig­na­ture by Chevron also re­veals their con­fi­dence and trust in

Turkey and the po­ten­tial of our coun­try,” he said.

“Our deal sym­bol­izes the be­gin­ning of a new area in our col­lab­o­ra­tion”

Colleen Cer­vantes, Pres­i­dent of Chevron Lu­bri­cants, said: “The first co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment be­tween Chevron and Petrol Ofisi was signed 70 years ago. This deal sym­bol­izes the be­gin­ning of a new and im­por­tant era. Petrol Ofisi is the lead­ing ac­tor in Turkey's fuel and lu­bri­cants sec­tors. The strong syn­ergy be­tween Petrol Ofisi and Chevron will fur­ther de­velop this new brand ex­ten­sion op­por­tu­nity.”
