Shell and TransDiesel to Partner in NZ

Kiwi-owned company TransDiesel is now the official distributor of Shell motor oils and lubricants in New Zealand.

Under the partnership agreement, announced
in early January, TransDiesel will manage distribution of Shell’s complete
range of products across the consumer, transport, industrial, agricultural and
marine sectors in New Zealand.

The partnership is seen as a progressive
move for both parties.  Shell is the
world’s number one global lubricant supplier and invests more than $1 billion
in research and development every year. They lead the way in developing new
energy products and technologies, from biofuels and liquefied natural gas, to
more efficient fuels and lubricants and they are acknowledged as being at the
forefront of innovation. Recent advancements include Shells’ PurePlus range,
the world’s first Gas-to-Liquid lubricant, which is a landmark innovation with
increased performance and environmental benefits.

TransDiesel is renowned for their sales and
service and operations throughout New Zealand and is the market leader in sales
of construction machinery, owning both the Volvo and Yanmar NZ franchises,
among others.

 “TransDiesel is a well-established 100% New
Zealand owned business with a commitment to ensuring the brands they represent
are global industry leaders in their respective fields. The company has
experienced a sustained period of growth and success and this latest
partnership with Shell is further testament to key international brands trust
in TransDiesel being the best sales and service organisation to represent them
in NZ,” said COO Paul Harris.

TransDiesel will commence product
distribution on 1 March 2020.
