Cummins and Valvoline Link Up
A new company has been launched by Cummins and Valvoline to supply lubricants for all makes and models of heavy-duty diesel engines. Under the name CV Lubricants Company Ltd the joint venture, headquartered in Birkenhead, Liverpool, UK will market and distribute co-branded products to the UK and Irish power generation, rail and marine markets. Stressing that the new service is not exclusively for Cummins engine customers John Noal, vice-president Valvoline EMEA, said that joint ventures in the developing Chinese and Indian markets “have already proven the strength of our offering”. Valvoline’s Premium Blue product range, already used as OEM initial fill at Cummins’ engine plants in India, the UK and United States will spearhead the company’s entry into the UK market.
