ExxonMobil has announced that it has signed a new distributor agreement with Zestcor, which is an experienced South African sales, procurement and supply chain management company. The agreement is designed to support an efficient and reliable supply of high-quality base stocks in the sub-Saharan region.
This commercial relationship will expand ExxonMobil’s global presence and provide local customers with additional access to base stocks capable of meeting a broad range of blending needs.
“We are committed to providing a reliable supply of high-quality products to our valued customers around the world. Zestcor complements ExxonMobil’s position in South Africa by providing local supply chain solutions, while supporting our long-term commitment to meeting customer demands,” says Julia Ruessmann, EAME base stocks and specialties sales manager at ExxonMobil.
Zestcor is uniquely equipped to receive bulk ExxonMobil shipments and handle both truck loading and delivery, as well as pipeline transfers, with its strategically placed bulk onshore tank-storage facilities at Bidvest Tank Terminals in Island View, Durban.
“At Zestcor, product integrity and quality control are at the forefront of what we do,” says Nic Dunn, director at Zestcor. “Partnering with a global leader like ExxonMobil, that shares these values and promotes them as a pillar of its business operations, makes perfect sense for us. We also believe that South Africa will benefit by having additional local access to high-quality base stocks.”
As a distributor of ExxonMobil base stocks, Zestcor must adhere to the company’s product integrity systems to ensure product quality and consistency.
