Over the past 10 years, Afton has significantly grown its presence in India. We recognize the need to help our growing customer base improve the value they deliver to their customers.
The region has seen major investments in infrastructure and strong growth in the automotive sector. The Indian additive market has grown at a pace faster than the finished fluid market. This high growth has led to a shift from lower tier fluids to more mainstream and value-focused top tier fluids that improve the operability of the rapidly growing auto and industrial segments.
Today, Afton’s local team based in Mumbai has more than doubled in size, bringing increased technical ability and logistical value. Through collaboration with customers ranging from global to regional and local fuel and lubricant brands, we have developed strong relationships with our customers by helping them succeed in the marketplace.
Our local teams are supported by a network of global logistics and in-country manufacturing and warehousing. By partnering with new and existing customers from our facilities in Mumbai, Hyderabad, and around the world, we are better able to help our customers develop marketable solutions, allowing them to meet their business objectives.
