Wilhelmsen is taking over sales, logistics and consulting for Klüber Lubrication’s maritime portfolio for sea-going vessels, in an exclusive sales and distribution deal, initially within European countries and Southeast Asia, followed later in the year by the rest of the world.

Kjell Andre Engen, EVP Marine Products, Wilhelmsen said: “This exclusive partnership pairs Klüber Lubrication’s market-leading marine lubricants with our unrivalled sales, customer service and supply network. Stronger together, customers old and new will quickly recognise the clear financial and operational value of our partnership”.

Klüber Lubrication’s speciality lubricants, including environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) are formulated to combine performance and longevity, and are designed for a variety of vessel and port applications. Klüber Lubrication’s premium products are believed to allow longer intervals between maintenance and thus help increase the lifespan of ship components.

Along with financial and environmental incentives for choosing Klüber Lubrication, customers will benefit from Wilhelmsen’s in-depth maritime expertise, established global distribution network and dedicated account manager set-up. In addition, according to Wilhelmsen, access to the wider Wilhelmsen marine products portfolio, offers obvious added value for forward-thinking owners, operators and managers looking to optimise their vessel operations.  In parallel to the Wilhelmsen partnership, Klüber Lubrication will continue to work directly with original equipment manufacturers.

Christoph Köhler, Head of Global Business Team Marine, Klüber Lubrication said: "In 2018, Klüber Lubrication and Wilhelmsen signed a cooperation. Following intensive preparatory work, we are now combining our respective strengths. The aim is that operators of ships, shipyards and dry docks can purchase innovative, high-performance specialty lubricants from a single point of contact all over the world. Promptly, reliably and with competent consulting provided".

Wilhelmsen’s Marine Products team have undergone in-depth training on Klüber Lubrication’s products and their applications.
