manufacturing & warehousing

Over 90% of our products are manufactured locally at our recently completed lubricant blending facility in Lindel Estate, Sapugaskanda. The facility includes semi-automated blending equipment, a state-of-the-art laboratory, an on-site base oil storage tank farm, and a modern warehouse for storing finished products. The result is an efficient workflow and optimized productivity, enabling us to produce 45 MML of finished lubricants per single shift operation each year. Designed to meet the latest standards in quality and safety, the plant is built on four and a half acres of land with a floor area of 5,000 square meters.

At Chevron, quality is an integral cog in our operations.

We are the only factory in Sri Lanka with a BS EN ISO 9001:2008 certification from the British Standards Institute (BSI).

The raw material suppliers to the plant are all ISO 9001 certified and monitored under the Global Quality Framework for the Chevron Corporation.

This is a testament to our commitment to providing cutting-edge lubricant solutions that meet the demands of technologically advanced engines and machines.

Currently, Chevron Lanka PLC manufactures and distributes quality lubricants under the Caltex, Havoline, Delo, and Lanka brands in Sri Lanka.

core manufacturing activities

Guaranteeing the highest quality oil, lubricant, and grease products to our customers is important to us. As such, our blending processes are subject to stringent quality control measures.

The first step is collecting high-quality raw materials from our network of BS: EN ISO 9001 certified local manufacturers. Next, finished oils and lubricants undergo quality control testing at our in-house laboratory. Finally, automated filling machines carry the products into containers for storage.

Since we’re the largest lubricant manufacturer in Sri Lanka, our on-site warehouse can store up to 1.4 million litres of raw materials and finished products.

key activities of manufacturing

Base Oil Storage

Our products use a combination of base oils and chemical additives for optimal effectivity.

Different viscosity grades of base oil are imported from Chevron-approved sources and stored at our base oil terminal in Mutwal.

Additive Storage

We carefully source different additives from Chevron-approved suppliers. These additives affect the features of the base oil and enhance its performance.

Blending of Lubricants

During the blending processes, we follow Chevron-approved formulations under strictly controlled conditions which helps us guarantee superior lubricant and oil products.

Testing of Lubricants to Assure Quality

Stringent quality testing on all our lubricants ensures that we maintain product quality, deliver value for money, and guarantee customer satisfaction. All the blended lubricants are tested at our laboratory to ensure it meets all the necessary specifications.

Packaging of Lubricants

Lubricants undergo further quality control checks during the filling and packaging stage. All packs and cans used at our facility are customized based on consumer requirements and are environmentally friendly.

Warehousing and Distribution

The final step is bringing the products to your home. Packed and canned lubricants and oils are moved to our warehouse managed by a third-party logistics specialist and distributed island-wide through our extensive network of regional distributors.
