ATIEL welcomes new member Idemitsu
ATIEL, the industry association representing manufacturers and marketers in the European lubricants industry, welcomes Idemitsu Lube Europe to its membership in 2017, the first company with origins in Japan to join the association.
Idemitsu Lube Europe GmbH was founded 17 years ago in Germany as an affiliate of parent company Idemitsu Kosan Ltd, which has been trading in Japan for more than 100 years.
The European business began with the import and distribution of own-label and Japanese OEM approved lubricants from Japan. The company’s portfolio includes products covering close to 200 different specifications and including powertrain lubricants as well as special fluids such as traction drive fluids and lubricants for industrial applications.
Today, its activities have expanded to incorporate local contract blending operations and supplies to European OEMs.
“Membership of ATIEL and participation in the work of its technical committees is another important step for us to strengthen our presence and engagement outside of Asia,” said Yuichi Kujo, General Manager of Idemitsu Lube Europe GmbH.
