Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety services to a wide range of industries around the world, has signed an agreement with Chevron Oronite, to offer analytical laboratory solutions from the Intertek Shanghai facility which significantly enhances Chevron Oronite's testing capabilities in China.
After completing a rigorous auditing process to confirm the Intertek laboratory fully meets Chevron Oronite standards for a testing facility, the Intertek Shanghai laboratory has been awarded the "Oronite Qualification Certificate". The facility, already in use, will enhance Oronite customer service to customers in China and support ongoing in-country field testing programs.
Jirong Xiao, Vice President for Technology, Chevron Oronite, said "The addition of the Shanghai testing facility is part of a longer term strategy for China that supplements Chevron Oronite's other technical support and research network around the world, including our technology center in Japan, which has a full range of laboratory and engine test facilities. This is another step in our continuous effort to improve processes and meet the ever-increasing technological needs of our customers."
Stacey Tylka, Vice President, South East Asia Region, Intertek, said "We are honored to assist Chevron Oronite with their additive testing needs in China. For more than a century, companies around the world have depended on Intertek to help ensure the quality and safety of their products, processes and systems."
Globally, Intertek oil condition monitoring testing programs are offered specifically to help clients identify early threats of failure from engine and power equipment, avoiding critical operational downtime.

"With a lab open in China, Chevron Oronite offers analytical services which immediately enhances the turnaround time and service to our customers" said Jeff Waite, General Manager for Sales, Asia-Pacific, Chevron Oronite.
Paul Kellett, Vice President, China and North Asia, said "We are committed to supporting Chevron Oronite in China. The new laboratory service collaboration is part of our continuing strategic expansion of Intertek's analytical testing capabilities in Greater China and other regions."
