"Our business has noticeably changed its portfolio of lubricants to high-tech products. This is not the first year we have seen this trend, but in 2019 it has intensified significantly. The past year has shown that our premiums are valued not only in Russia, where we actively participate in import substitution programs, but also abroad. However, the modern consumer needs not only a high-quality product - he needs a positive customer experience, in the first place - to resolve issues related to the operation of cars and equipment. In response to these changes, we are developing a system of engineering services for both retail customers and business partners, and we see this as a growth zone in a highly competitive lubricants market, ”said Alexander Truhan, CEO of Gazpromneft-Lubricants. .
