The plant has capacity to produce up to 430 million litres of lubricants and grease every year - enough to change the engine oil of more than 12,000 cars, every hour, every day.

The plant will also be a manufacturing hub for products that will be shipped to more than 40 countries, mainly in the Asia-Pacific region.

Singapore's Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry) S Iswaran said:“It is also a recognition of the growth opportunities that can be seized from Singapore,” and stressed that the country is well-positioned to benefit from strong demand growth for lubricants.
