We have some good news for fans of Motul fluids in the ASEAN region. The French oil company has officially opened a new distribution hub to cater to the Asia Pacific region. This means customers in the ASEAN, including the Philippines, will have an easier time sourcing Motul fluids such as oil, brake, ATF, and more.
The new Motul Asia Hub is located at the Pacific Logistics Group (PLG), Tuas Headquarters in Singapore. It is situated in a 700,000 sq ft facility that will support and enhance Motul's supply chain across the Asia Pacific region by consolidating warehousing and inventory operations. It will play an important role in helping the brand establish a greater presence in the APAC region and further.
“The launch of our new Motul Asia Hub today represents an exciting continuation of our efforts to capitalize on Asia's dynamic growth and transformation. With this hub, we aim to streamline our supply chain in the region and bring our products to customers with greater efficiency,” says Lionel Dantiacq, CEO of Motul Asia Pacific
Through the new Motul Asia Hub and its partnership with PLG, Motul says they can streamline distribution to its dealers across the region. The fluids will also benefit from the exemption of Singapore's Goods and Services Tax (GST) as these will be re-exported, reducing processing time and overhead costs.
Take note the hub is for Motul product lines coming from France. For reference, some of the company’s products are made in Vietnam, including engine and motorcycle oils. However, the rest are still produced in Europe.
So the next time you need Motul fluids for your daily, sports car, or even motorbike, expect local suppliers to have them in stock. Hopefully, the opening of the Motul Asia Hub will help lower the prices of their higher-end fluids like 300V as well.
