OEM Partners

We work closely with a number of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), working with them to develop new products and to get them to market. By taking a flexible approach, we make sure the end users get authentic and superior products, and OEMs get to reach as wide an audience as possible, thanks to our distribution network.

From the initial product formulation, through the selection of raw material – base oils and additives – to its blending and manufacturing facilities, Gulf’s rigorous checks for all of its products ensure that their quality is matched only by the service that you receive. We strive to reach the best standards throughout. Our products are manufactured at ISO 9001 certified facilities – a measure of the robust systems and processes that they employ. The importance that Gulf places on the quality of its plants has resulted in key facilities receiving TS16949 certification – a more stringent quality system requirement even than those specified by the automotive OEMs – which means that you can always be assured that the Gulf product you choose is more than up to the task at hand.
