Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC and UTE Engineering have signed a partnership to sell Donaldson filtration solutions represented by UTE exclusively through Chevron’s retail network in Sri Lanka.
Chevron Lubricants Lanka, Sri Lanka’s leading lubricants marketer, is engaged in blending, manufacturing, importing, distributing and marketing finished lubricants, lubricating greases, brake fluids and specialty products. Its parent company is U.S. based Chevron Corporation.
United Tractor & Equipment (Private) Limited, also known as UTE, provides engineering solutions to all Sri Lankan industries.
UTE Engineering has served the engineering industry for more than70 years and has been the Donaldson distributor in Sri Lanka for more than 15 years. Donaldson, which is based in Bloomington, Minn., U.S.A. is the largest filtration solution manufacturer in the world. Donaldson has expanded its product portfolio to cover different sectors, including construction machinery, transportation, marine, power generation & industrial engines. Today, Donaldson operates a network of approximately 140 sales, manufacturing and distribution locations in 44 countries across the world.
“We are pleased to partner with UTE Engineering to offer added value to our network of channel partners and their customers. In a market where there are various spurious lubricants sold by unscrupulous dealers. The Caltex network of Approved Oil Marts, Star Care and Xpress Lube outlets have earned a reputation of trust and reliability which we believe is what prompted UTE to use our branded channels to distribute Donaldson filtration solutions to the market,” Kishu Gomes, managing director and CEO of Chevron Lubricants, said.
“UTE Engineering is pleased to partner with Chevron to market Donaldson filtration solutions through their retailer network, which I am confident would add value to both the Chevron retailers and the end users of these high-quality filters. It is a synergistic partnership,” said Prasan Fernando, chairman of UTE Engineering.
