VANCOUVER, B.C. — Catalys Lubricants has announced its launch into the B.C industrial lubricants market, where it will serve as the distributor for Chevron.
Catalys is the new Western Canadian division of Groupe Crevier. It will be responsible for the sale and distribution of lubricants in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island, the company announced.
“We are very excited for our launch into the Western Canadian marketplace with Catalys Lubricants,” says Pierre Crevier, president of Groupe Crevier and Catalys Lubricants. “We have enjoyed a long and lauded history in Eastern Canada, where we remain very active, and are delighted to expand our operations to British Columbia.”
Groupe Crevier has been recognized as one of Chevron’s top marketers in North America.
“Chevron Canada Limited has a long standing relationship with Groupe Crevier,” says Deanna Eckford, area business manager for Chevron Canada. “We are looking forward to continuing to work with Groupe Crevier and their new Western Canada subsidiary Catalys. We know that Chevron customers will be in great hands with Catalys.”
Groupe Crevier says its move into the B.C. market doubles its sales capacity and increases the volume of Chevron products it distributes by 150%. The company already has a presence in Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, P.E.I. and Newfoundland.
“It’s an exciting time,” says Steve Madelung, general manager of Catalys Lubricants. “We have been working very closely with Chevron during this launch period and are utilizing existing Chevron resources to ensure a seamless transition. We will continue to provide the complete Chevron product range and, of course, the great customer service that Chevron customers expect.”
