What plans does GS Caltex have to further strengthen its presence in the Indian market?
During the last one decade, GS Caltex has established itself as one of the fastest growing multinational lubricants companies in India with its impressive range of high-quality finished lubricants. It supplies to large businesses, including various OEMs. The company`s operations cover the whole of India with warehouses at key locations to service the needs of customers.

GS Caltex Corporation, South Korea, continues to be bullish about its Indian operations and has planned to infuse more working capital as the business expands in the next few years. Our aim is to grow profitable volumes and provide sustainable solutions to our customers and become a preferred brand in the construction and mining industry.

In the upcoming bauma Conexpo India, GS Caltex will focus on its high-performance products and services for the Construction and Mining Industry.

How can end-users in the construction equipment industry reduce their operational costs with the high-performance lubricants from GS Caltex?
Our aim is to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership for end-users in the construction equipment industry, hence, we focus on all types of costs, including product cost, maintenance costs, and administration costs.

The high-performance lubricants from GS Caltex offer reliability at all temperatures, lower oil consumption, significantly lower fuel consumption, and extend service intervals. Whenever engines and gearboxes run freer and more reliably, operating costs are lower because they consume less. And just 1% lower fuel consumption (depending on operating conditions) means fuel savings of several hundred rupees per vehicle every year.

What measures is GS Caltex taking to achieve sustainability?
Due to its focus and investments in environmentally sustainable lubricant solutions, the market is moving towards fully synthetic products (Group III and PAO based Base Oils), which offer various advantages over conventional lubricants, such as excellent thermal stability, wear & tear protection, and other properties such as good load carrying capacity and low friction. Their popularity is therefore anticipated to propel the industry’s growth in the B2B segment over the next few years.

We have made services an integral part of our offering to mining companies and achieve our sustainable goals. GS Caltex is ready to address the challenges in the market and become a preferred solution provider in the Synthetic Lubricants (PAO-based) category. Also our researched additive package complement the performance of the finished lubricants by making them more sustainable, fuel efficient, and reliable.
