“Gulf Oil is known for many firsts: for example, we pioneered the concept of pushing the drain interval from 20,000 to 35,000 to 80,000 km, with the help of our associate OEM - Ashok Leyland. For industrial applications, we have developed many eco-friendly products, since hydraulic applications have an adverse impact on the environment; in fact, we always strive to be energy efficient and environment-conscious.”
Today, Gulf Oil India is present across the entire infrastructure domain, from road, metro, and aviation to irrigation, etc. The company also offers customized models to meet the local needs of different industries and customers from both organised and unorganized sectors. “We are focused on upscaling our brand to create more value for the CE industry and are integrating digitalization in our processes. With human-centricity as our core value, we bring efficiencies in our services that go beyond technology. All our products are of global standard. We are associating with around 10 OEMs to meet their need for technology advancements, logistics etc, and along with them, we are developing products based on their application requirements,” says Tiwari.
