Motul Asia Pacific today inaugurated a new, state-of-the-art regional warehouse, the Motul Asia Hub, in a ceremony officiated by CEO Lionel Dantiacq. The Motul Asia Hub is located at the Pacific Logistics Centre (PLG) at Singapore’s brand new Tuas Mega Port. 

“The launch of our new Motul Asia Hub today represents an exciting continuation of our efforts to capitalize on Asia’s dynamic growth and transformation. With this hub, we aim to streamline our supply chain in the region and bring our products to customers with greater efficiency. Catering to the customer’s needs is at the core of who we are, and this hub serves as a symbol of our dedication to hundreds of thousands of customers who choose Motul. The hub will play a monumental role in expanding our reach, tapping new markets and bringing these amazing Motul products to existing and new customers for all their lubrication needs,” said Dantiacq.

The hub will play a critical role as Motul continues to build a greater presence across the Asia-Pacific region and further strengthens its leadership in high-performance lubricants and fluids. The 700,000 square foot (sq ft) facility will support and enhance Motul’s supply chain across the Asia Pacific region by consolidating warehousing and inventory operations. A modern supply chain solution will tackle the complexities of the current market and streamline business operations. 

Asia has been a key market to Motul’s global business for many years, and the region continues to grow as the demand for lubricants ramps up. Motul is excited about the launch of the Asia Hub, which will be essential in supporting its ambitions of accelerated growth. The hub will allow Motul to bring newly developed product lines to market faster across the region, as the company aims to broaden its category reach and embrace product innovations for changing mobility requirements.

The unique location of the warehouse will provide a geographical advantage for faster and easier transit with quick turnaround times for both air and sea shipments to all regional markets. The close proximity to the Tuas Mega Port as well as Singapore’s Changi Airport makes the location of the warehouse optimal for improved supply chain efficiency. The facility will also house the latest technology, including a secure web-based inventory management system for instant access to up to date information.

Through its partnership with Pacific Logistics Centre and their bonded facilities, Motul will be able to ensure a streamlined distribution network across the region to support its dealers. A unique aspect of the bonded facilities is the exemption of GST imposed on goods imported to be re-exported, reducing processing time and overhead costs leading to greater efficiencies.
