On 15 February 2010, Sealub Alliance Americas, Inc., a part of the Gulf Oil Marine group, headquartered in Hong Kong, announced a fully operational manufacturing and supply and distribution network in the United States and Canada.
Sealub Alliance Americas is now producing all marine products in four strategic blending facilities and has established a comprehensive distribution network to support delivery operations in more than 80 ports in the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, the Americas team has established new supply operations in Panama, Hawaii and on the Mississippi River.
This market opening compliments the existing Sealub Alliance global coverage of more than 700 ports in over 50 countries making the Alliance a market leader in the ability to address maritime lubrication needs in more ports than any competitor.
Sealub Alliance has additional plans to expand further their capabilities in Canada and to establish a presence on the Great Lakes. These actions are targeted to be completed in 2010.
The geographical reach of Sealub Alliance in the U.S. compliments the company’s prime directive of providing quality products at any port that the customer requires. While many other oil companies are reducing the number of ports they service, Sealub Alliance is taking the opposite approach by expanding port coverage.
In addition to its extensive delivery capabilities, Sealub Alliance also offers a full line of technical services for the U.S. market, to include, technical ship visits, Lubtrust complete used oil analysis, Lubtrust onboard mini-laboratories and technical seminars for onboard and onshore trainings. This range of services aims at providing the most expert assistance and knowledge sharing about marine lubricants that could be required by marine customers.
