In addition, CGC Lubricants Italy has finalised a strategic cooperation agreement with SEG Motol, a Saneg subsidiary that is a leading manufacturer of technical oils in Uzbekistan.

CGC Lubricants Italy's expertise in developing and producing high-performance lubricants will be instrumental in enhancing Saneg's oil production capabilities. The company's Bari plant houses a fully accredited R&D laboratory, which is continuously innovating and developing a wide range of new lubricants. This expertise will be integrated into Saneg's Fergana Oil Refinery (FNPZ), leveraging CGC Lubricants Italy's advanced technologies and know-how to elevate the production of lubricants in Uzbekistan.

Highlights:

  • Saneg acquires CGC Lubricants Italy, an Italian producer of automotive and industrial oils and lubricants.
  • The acquisition expands Saneg's footprint into the European market and strengthens its position in the lubricants industry.
  • The acquisition will enhance SANEG's ability to supply high-tech lubricants to the Uzbek and European markets.
  • The synergy between Saneg and CGC Lubricants Italy positions Saneg as a technological leader in the lubricants market of Central Asia.

Saneg's acquisition of CGC Lubricants Italy brings together two established players in the lubricants industry. CGC Lubricants Italy boasts a state-of-the-art production plant in Bari, Italy, employing 19 skilled professionals, and a commercial office in Rome with 11 employees. The company's production processes are highly automated, ensuring efficiency and consistency in the manufacturing of over 200 types of lubricants.

CGC Lubricants Italy will serve as a strategic supplier of high-tech commercial lubricants to FNPZ, ensuring a seamless supply of essential lubricants to the Uzbek market and beyond. Within three years, Saneg aims to fully localize the production of CGC Lubricants Italy's products in Uzbekistan, further strengthening its domestic manufacturing capabilities.

The acquisition also provides Saneg with a substantial share of the Italian and European lubricants market, as Saneg will gain immediate access to CGC Lubricants Italy's extensive distribution network across Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal, where up to 26 thousand tons of products are supplied annually.

SEG Motol's agreement with CGC Lubricants Italy will enable a collaboration encompassing scientific, technological, commercial, and marketing spheres. Key elements include sharing expertise in lubricant formulations and production technologies, as well pursuing European safety certificates for FNPZ-produced base oils to enable their utilisation in the production of commercial oils and lubricants.

The agreement also extends to joint marketing initiatives aimed at promoting the Saneg and SEG Motol brands across Uzbekistan, Central Asia, Italy, and the European Union.
