Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft Lubricants, commented: “Our business plan is extremely ambitious — but, that fact notwithstanding, we have been able to exceed designated targets in the first half-year. We have no intention of dropping the pace, since we fully understand the growing demand for high-technology lubricants on the global market. However, it’s not enough to just produce quality products — today’s market leader can only be whoever is offering viable business solutions, based on the best service. Which is precisely the route we are taking in our own development, constantly improving our competencies and developing the most cutting-edge offerings for the market.”
