WP Group expand AUTHORISED Mobil™ distributorship - across the UK

Providing our world class service to more Mobil customers

In what will be a major expansion of its existing operations, WP Group is delighted to announce ExxonMobil Petroleum and Chemical BVBA are seeking to appoint them as an Authorised Mobil Lubricants Distributor for the UK.

Subject to the successful conclusion of a lubricants distribution agreement, the Authorised Distributorship will cover the majority of England, Scotland and parts of Wales effective 1st September 2017.


New territories for WP Group

As part of the recent expansion of WP Group’s Authorised Mobil Distributorship, we are pleased to announce the opening of three new strategic depots across the UK.

The opening of a new hub in Gravesend and new distribution centres in Wakefield and Aberdeen (along with the existing Southampton depot), means that WP Group now houses the largest stock-holding of Mobil products in the UK.

Combined with sophisticated forecasting and warehouse management systems, this new nationwide presence enables us to deliver the highest quality Mobil oils to more customers and in more locations than ever before.

Alongside the opening of our new strategic hubs, our team of specialist Mobil lubricant experts will be the driving force behind these new ventures. Employed locally, our growing regional teams bring a wealth of knowledge and industry insights which will be beneficial to both our own and our customers’ businesses.

Darren Borras,
commercial director at WP Group, said:

“This is an exciting time for WP Group. The opening of these new regional hubs is a great example of the ongoing investment in our infrastructure and people following our expansion as UK Authorise Mobil Distributor. In addition to achieving full compliance of ExxonMobil’s strict product integrity standards, these newly located depots will enable us to continue to deliver a world-class service to a growing customer base.”
