Ampol has introduced its extensive range of Mobil lubricants to its national retail network following an initial distribution to business customers.
Ampol commenced blending and supply of Mobil lubricants at its Lytton manufacturing facility in May 2021. Its products are now being rolled out across the country as stores convert to Ampol and existing ranges are replaced with the new range of Mobil lubricant products.
Joanne Taylor, Executive General Manager, Consumer and B2B, Ampol, said that Ampol remains committed to delivering world-class products to Australian consumers.
“Ampol is Australia’s leading transport energy provider and has been delivering quality products to Australians for over 120 years. Paired with Mobil’s world-class lubricant technology, we are using our scale, Australian expertise, manufacturing capability and strong customer relationships to evolve our lubricant offer to meet changing customer needs.”
Kum Fong Siew, Executive Director for South Asia Pacific Lubricants, ExxonMobil Asia Pacific, said they are pleased for Australian consumers to be able to access the extensive range of Mobil lubricants through Ampol.
“We have confidence in Ampol’s robust quality control, testing techniques and adoption of ExxonMobil’s quality management system. This means that retail customers will continue to be accessing quality, world-class lubricants throughout Australia, including when they enter an Ampol store.”
Mobil has a broad range of lubricants targeted at a range of industries and uses. Passenger cars and light commercial vehicle lubricant solutions are marketed under the Mobil1™ and Mobil Super™ product brands, while lubricants for trucks, tractors and other equipment are marketed under the Mobil Delvac™ product brand. Ampol’s retail network will carry an extensive range of these products.
In 2020, Ampol announced that it had entered a marketing alliance with ExxonMobil to blend, distribute and market Mobil lubricants across Australia. Under the agreement, Ampol will supply Mobil lubricants to retail and business customers through a combination of direct and distributor channels.
The manufacturing, distribution, and marketing conversion to Mobil lubricants, including the retail rollout, is progressing well, with most of the volume expected to transition over the coming months.
