Gulf Oil, S-OIL unite to launch premium lubricants in India

Gulf Oil Lubricants India Ltd., part of the Hinduja Group, has announced a strategic alliance with S-OIL SEVEN, marking a significant enhancement in its product offerings for the Indian consumer. This collaboration will see the introduction of the internationally recognised S-OIL SEVEN range in India, with Gulf Oil managing the production, distribution, and marketing aspects.

The partnership is notable as it brings the S-OIL SEVEN range, known for its high-quality passenger car gasoline and diesel engine oils, to be produced outside South Korea for the first time. Gulf Oil has been granted exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute these products across its widespread network in India.

Ravi Chawla, managing director and CEO of Gulf Oil Lubricants India Ltd, expressed gratitude to S-OIL and KIA Motors India for the opportunity to integrate advanced Korean technology into Indian production. 

S H Son, team leader at S-OIL, highlighted the partnership’s potential to leverage Gulf Oil Lubricantsโ€™ extensive distribution network and industry insight for significant market penetration in India. The alliance, initiated three years ago, is now poised to embark on a promising journey, positioning S-OIL SEVEN as an emerging brand in the Indian lubricant market.

The S-OIL SEVEN offers a diverse range of products, including fully-synthetic, synthetic, and mineral oils tailored for gasoline-powered passenger cars, motorcycles, as well as diesel engine oils.
