Certas Energy and Shell Lubricants have announced a new five-year distribution contract that the companies say will see a strengthening of their collaboration in the supply of high quality lubricants across the UK.
The two firms have been collaborating since 2004 and the new contract is said to bolster Certas Energy’s position as Shell’s largest contracted lubricants distributor in the UK.
Certas Energy says its customers will continue to benefit from access to a quality product portfolio and comprehensive wrap-around service that includes the widest possible coverage, swift and reliable packed, bulk and even same or next day deliveries.
Jon Huggett, Shell UK indirect sales manager commented: “I am delighted to continue our relationship with Certas. Our distributors are trusted and approved ambassadors of Shell Lubricants and of the Shell brand in the UK, and have established strong technical, logistical and commercial expertise that they can offer customers.”
Tony Stewart, director of Certas Energy, added: “We aim to be more than just a supplier to our customers and the combination of Shell’s quality lubricants and our technical and customer service capabilities provides our customers with a cost-competitive offering that gives them everything they need to keep moving.
“We are looking forward to continuing to work with Shell to provide access to a leading portfolio of lubrication products and services that will help drive standards across the industry.”
Although lubricants typically represent a small percentage of total running costs, selecting the right lubricant can help save significant costs and reduce inefficiencies, Certas Energy says – adding that, by working with a lubricant supplier that combines technical know-how with high levels of service, customers can be more confident in choosing the best products for their requirements.
Shell Lubricants’ products and services are said to help maximise equipment efficiency, prolong vehicle life and reduce downtime to deliver substantial customer savings. Customers also have access to technical support services from Shell Lubricants including Shell LubeMatch and Shell LubeAnalyst.
