Rise in Asia-Pacific demand underpins growth of Lubmarine's 25-year HK operation

03 Dec 2015 09:57 GMT

Total Lubmarine's Hong Kong office is described as being a 'key part' of its infrastructure in Asia.



Total Lubmarine says that increased demand for marine lubricants in the Asia-Pacific region has underpinned the growth of its Hong Kong office, which this year celebrates 25 years of service to ship operators across the region.

Today, Asia represents more than 50 percent of Total's lubricants sales across all segments. Total Lubmarine's Hong Kong office is described by the company as being a "key part" of its Asian infrastructure.

The lubricant supplier's Hong Kong story began in 1990 when Elf Lubricant Hong Kong Ltd was established as Lubmarine's head office for the Asia-Pacific region with four staff providing marine lubricants and services to customers in Hong Kong and China.

25 years later, the company, now named Total Lubricants Hong Kong Ltd, has become a leading supplier of marine lubricants to twelve countries in the Asia-Pacific region with over 70 Total Lubmarine staff based in five offices, six partner organisations, 10 blending plants and more than 350 delivery ports. In July, Total opened Tuas, Singapore, its largest ever lubricant plant with an annual production capacity of 310,000 tonnes.

In a statement, Andrew Knox, Total Lubmarine Asia-Pacific General Manager, commented: "In 25 years Total Lubmarine has become a firm leader in the Asia-Pacific marine lubricants business. We consistently deliver large volumes of quality marine lubricants and at the same time maintain high levels of safety and service. Growth in manpower has been matched by growth in reputation and we will continue to strive to become the 'go-to' Asia-Pacific lubricants provider."

In 2014, there were over 27,000 international cargo vessel calls at the Port of Hong Kong. Last month, Total Lubmarine increased its Hong Kong barge capacity by replacing Marine Excellence with a larger barge, Gold Marine Pride.

Total Lubmarine also plays an active role in supporting the seafaring community calling at the Port of Hong Kong, sponsoring the Mission to Seafarers.
