Repsol Lubricants in late December formally extended its relationship with Total Lubmarine for a further three years, says the latter.
The partnership with Repsol Lubricants ensures Total Lubmarine can continue to best serve its maritime and power plant customers in Gibraltar, Peru and Spain.
The Total Lubmarine network is made up of a range of partners who are able to manufacture in strategic locations and help enable lubricants to be delivered to over 1,000 ports worldwide.
“This is particularly good news for our shipping customers calling at Gibraltar and Algeciras, two of the Mediterranean’s most important bunkering hubs,” added Javier Miranda, Lubricants Director at Repsol.
“Our relationship with Total Lubmarine is as strong as ever, and we are very optimistic that the partnership will continue to be extremely productive.”
In Peru, Total Lubmarine will now be using a regional supply chain instead of a European one, harnessing more local knowledge to fulfil customer’s requirements.
In Spain and Gibraltar, the partnership with Repsol ensures that the customers continue to receive the best value in a competitive market.
“Total Lubmarine is pleased to have reached an agreement with Repsol Lubricants to extend our long-standing partnership for a further three years,” said Robert Joore, General Manager at Total Lubmarine.
“This renewed agreement will continue to ensure quality products for our customers in Spain, Gibraltar and Peru.”
The relationship between the two companies was first established in 1962.
