The agreement is part of Al Maha's efforts to strengthen its presence in the retail sector, particularly in the motor oil market. Under this agreement, Al Maha will supply its customers with PLI products through its high-street outlets, its 220 filling stations forecourts across the Sultanate, as well as the commercial and car dealers and franchise owners sector. PLI will offer a high end product portfolio in the market. Flagship brands that will be designated for the Omani market include Syntium, Urania, Mach 5, Hydraulic oils, Transmission fluids and Industrial lubricants.
