Perodua and Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) have signed a RM225 million deal to supply the carmaker with lubricant oil over the next five years. Dubbed the Perodua Genuine Oil agreement, the contract will see Perodua using Petronas SL/SM grade engine oil at all its service outlets nationwide worth RM45 million per annum.

“This deal is indeed very special for us as it strengthens the already good relationship that we are enjoying with Petronas Dagangan Berhad and I believe that this agreement will usher in a new chapter of cooperation between both parties,” said Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, who signed the agreement with PDB’s MD/CEO Amir Hamzah Azizan.

“Over the past 30 years, PDB has successfully grown to become Malaysia’s second largest lubricant company in a very competitive market. We aim to be the number one in Malaysia by 2015 through effective marketing initiatives, backed by our technological expertise and strong support from our strategic global partnerships. Today’s signing ceremony between PDB and Perodua is certainly a step forward to reinforce PDB’s position as the Brand of First Choice,” Amir said.

PDB is the principal domestic marketing arm of Petronas for downstream products. The national oil company has seven modern blending facilities worldwide including Italy and two research and development centres. Perodua and PDB have a business partnership since 2003.
