ExxonMobil has announced that
it has completed its expansion project in Jurong, Singapore to increase
production of grease and synthetic lubricants, including Mobil 1, the
company’s flagship synthetic engine oil.
“India’s economy continues to
grow with significant opportunities across industries. One of the biggest
market opportunities is within the automotive sector fuelled by the growing
middle class consumer segment that look for high quality lubricant solutions
for their vehicles. Other industries such as general manufacturing also stand
to benefit from increased product demand. The proximity of the new synthetic
lubricants and grease plants in Singapore offer our customers in India an
enhanced value chain with reliable supply and more efficient delivery,” said Deepankar Banerjee, Chief Executive
Officer, ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt Ltd
The expansion of the Jurong
lubricant plant further strengthens the company’s manufacturing capabilities
and its ability to meet the growing demand for grease and synthetic lubricants
products in the Asia Pacific region.
“These new grease and
synthetic lubricants production facilities are strategically located close to
key Asia Pacific markets, ensuring the reliable supply of these premium
products to our customers,” said Teoh Song Ping, Asia Pacific lubricant sales
director at ExxonMobil, adding that “Our advanced lubricating oils and greases
contribute to society’s broader sustainability objectives by helping to
increase equipment operating efficiency and engine fuel economy, which
contribute to reduced energy and resource use, as well as lower emissions.”
The grease plant started
production in January 2017, and the synthetics plant, which was completed in
March, started production in April following a successful commissioning.
