ExxonMobil has signed a new distributor agreement with Zestcor in South Africa. The agreement is designed to support an efficient and reliable supply of high-quality base stocks in South Africa and the sub-Saharan region.
Zestcor has a distinct local business footprint in the South African petrochemicals industry. This commercial relationship will expand ExxonMobil’s global presence and provide local customers 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,” said Julia Ruessmann, EAME Basestocks and Specialties Sales Manager at ExxonMobil. “Zestcor not only complements ExxonMobil’s position in South Africa by providing local supply chain solutions, but supports our long-term commitment to meeting customer demands in country.”
Zestcor is equipped to receive bulk ExxonMobil shipments and handle both truck loading and delivery, as well as pipeline transfers, with their strategically placed bulk onshore tank storage facilities at Bidvest Tank Terminals in Island View, Durban.
As a distributor of ExxonMobil base stocks, Zestcor must adhere to the company’s product integrity systems to ensure product quality and consistency.
“At Zestcor, product integrity and quality control are at the forefront of what we do,” said Nic Dunn, Director at Zestcor. “Partnering with a global leader like ExxonMobil, who not only shares these values, but promotes them as a pillar of their 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.”
