Repsol Lubricants, a member of the Total Lubmarine network for over 50 years, has formally committed to its relationship with Total Lubmarine for a further three years. 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.
Announcing the contract renewal, Robert Joore, General Manager, Total Lubmarine said: “Total Lubmarine is pleased to have reached an agreement with Repsol Lubricants to extend our long-standing partnership for a further three years. This renewed agreement will continue to ensure quality products for our customers in Spain, Gibraltar and Peru.”
Francisco Javier Miranda Cordente, Spain Lubricants Director, Repsol, added: “This is particularly good news for our shipping customers calling at Gibraltar and Algeciras, two of the Mediterranean’s most important bunkering hubs. Our relationship with Total Lubmarine is as strong as ever, and we are very optimistic that the partnership will continue to be extremely productive.”
The partnership increases Total Lubmarine’s competitiveness in each region. In Peru, Total Lubmarine will now be using a regional supply chain instead of a European one, which it says will harness more local knowledge to fulfil customer’s requirements. In Spain and Gibraltar, it says the partnership with Repsol ensures that customers continue to receive the best value in a competitive market.
The relationship between the two companies was first established in 1962.
