Exol Lubricants agrees supply contract with First Bus

Exol Lubricants, the UK’s largest independent oil blender, has reached an agreement with First Bus – one of the UK’s largest bus operators – to supply lubricants and associated products to the company’s 6500 buses.

As part of the agreement, Exol will supply bulk engine oils, gear oils and transmission fluids in a number of pack sizes to First Bus, who carry around 2.3million passengers every day in the UK.

First Bus operates approximately one in five of all local bus services in the UK and operates routes in many major towns and cities. The bus operator maintains and repairs its vehicle fleet from its own national network of workshops, which will now be supplied direct with Exol products.

The partnership with First Bus complements Exol’s long-standing supply agreementswith First Group’s rail business and demonstrates the oil blender’s wide-ranging and high quality product portfolio.

Exol sales director, Steve Dunn, said: “This is major seal of approval for Exol Lubricants and highlights both our versatility in serving multiple markets and also our focus in ensuring our products are of the highest possible quality.”
