Back in 1833, a young shopkeeper selling antiques and bric-a-brac in London’s East End named Marcus Samuel decided to expand his merchandise to include hugely popular oriental shells. This decision turned his shop into a successful import/export business. Little did he realize that this would become the foundation for a company that would lead the global oil and lubricants industry.
Shell produces base oils in eight plants, across a range of grades, and blend finished lubricants in more than 50 plants in about 34 countries. The corporate giant markets, sells, and distributes finished lubricants as well as offer services to customers in over 100 countries, which means an abundant supply of superior quality products.
