Proton and Petronas have a long-standing partnership since 1989 with the local oil & gas company supplying lubricants to the national car maker. Now, the two companies have extended their partnership once again for another 10 years.
Petronas Lubricants Marketing Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PLMM), a subsidiary of Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) and Petronas Lubricants International (PLI) will develop, supply and deliver lubricant products and functional fluids to Proton’s factory fill and aftersales service, with the key product being the Petronas Syntium SE range of engine oil.
Petronas Syntium SE engine oils – SE for “Serviced at Edar” is a result from the long-standing partnership where the fluids were developed specifically to optimise the performance of Proton vehicles and reduce the cost of ownership in the long run for Proton owners.
Proton CEO, Dr Li Chunrong said: “Proton and Petronas have a long history of working together so it was only natural for us to extend our partnership. PROTON has a lot of exciting new models in the pipeline and we are eager to explore technical solutions developed together with PETRONAS that will benefit our customers.”
