Univar extends agreement to distribute Castrol’s industrial lubricants and greases

Univar Inc., a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Univar Specialty Consumables Ltd., has extended its agreement with the Castrol Oil Company to distribute its range of industrial lubricants and greases. Castrol is a world-leading manufacturer of premium lubricating oils, greases and related services to automotive, marine, industrial, aviation, oil exploration and production to customers across the world.

“Combining Castrol’s excellent portfolio with our sales team’s technical expertise enables us to provide a comprehensive suite of machinery solutions to our customers,” said Mark Mongan, sales manager of Univar’s specialty consumables. “These products will help reduce service intervals and, in turn, reduce service costs. The collaboration expands Univar’s reach into new markets and bolsters our product portfolio with one of the biggest brands in the lubricant space.”

Castrol is at the forefront of pioneering technology with its seven global research and development centers, all focused on the innovation and testing of many new products every year. The lubricant company, which is owned by British oil major BP, works closely with leading industry manufacturers to supply a broad range of lubricants designed for specific operating conditions and environments.

Univar is one of the largest chemical distributors in the world. Its Univar Specialty Consumables (USC) business supplies high-quality consumable solutions from a carefully selected band of industry-leading manufacturers.

Part of Univar’s value-added services includes an oil-condition monitoring test, so customers can assess if an alternative machine lubricant will improve performance and longevity for the application. Univar’s technical expertise and experience help ensure that customers not only receive the best products, but also the technical advice and support needed to guarantee their production lines run smoothly.

“By teaming up with Univar, Castrol customers can consolidate their lubricants and other consumables into a single source,” said Mark Scarisbrick, distributor business manager for Castrol Oil. “This means consistent, high-quality service and support across multiple categories.”

Founded in 1924, Univar operates hundreds of distribution facilities throughout North America, Western Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Univar delivers tailored customer solutions through a broad product and services portfolio sustained by one of the most extensive industry distribution networks in the world.
