United Global subsidiary forms Taiwan joint venture

United Global Limited, a Singapore-based independent lubricant manufacturer and trader which debuted on the Catalist of the Singapore Exchange in July, announced that its subsidiary, United Oil Co. Pte Ltd, has entered into an agreement to form a joint venture in Taiwan with Jin Wei Chuang Co. to distribute United Oil-branded lubricants in Taiwan.

United Oil owns a 44,000-metric-tonne lubricant blending plant, with an in-house laboratory, in Singapore.
