RUBIS LAUNCHED A LINE OF LUBRICANTS IN JAMAICA Rubis Energy Jamaica launched the Rubis lubricant product line in the Jamaican market in June 2019: a commemorative milestone for the Group's sixth year of operations in the country. Blended (from base oils and additives that meet international standards) and packaged in Jamaica, these lubricants have been customised to suit the needs of the country’s motoring public, factories and mechanics. In particular, we produce high performance passenger car motor oils which meet the highest requirements of the American Petroleum Institute (API), high-performance heavy-duty diesel engine oils (e.g. API CJ-4SL), outboard 2-stroke oils, automotive gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, heavy duty transmission oils, industrial hydraulic oils and industrial gear oils. Rubis lubricants have seen a significant upward trend in sales for the period and are well on the way to meeting ambitious targets for the first and second quarters of 2020. Further success is anticipated for the product line when business to business (B2B) transactions are grown further and developed to facilitate large scale transactions. Currently, Rubis lubricants are retailed through all RUBiS gas stations and to a significant number of commercial and industrial customers across the island. Alain Carreau
