resumes Mobil jet oil sales to all airlines
Posted: 17 March 2003
ExxonMobil reported it has resumed marketing Mobil Jet Oils to airlines served
by Exxon Corporation prior to its merger with Mobil Corporation
in 1999, but not previously served by Mobil.
As a condition of the merger to form Exxon Mobil Corporation
(NYSE:XOM), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the European
Commission (EC) required ExxonMobil to divest itself of the Exxon
Turbo Oil (jet engine oil) business.
The new company was also prohibited from actively soliciting Mobil-branded
jet engine oil sales at customers that had historically used exclusively
Exxon Turbo Oils, until January 1, 2003.
With the deadline passed, ExxonMobil is now offering a complete
range of aviation lubricants, including Mobil Jet Oils, to all commercial
carriers, including former Exxon Turbo Oil customers.
"Mobil Jet Oils are the lubricants of choice for the majority
of the world's leading airlines," said David Parsons, global
aviation lubricants manager, ExxonMobil Marine & Aviation Lubricants.
"Now that we have emerged from the temporary non-solicitation
period, ExxonMobil is eager to introduce Mobil Jet Oils to potential
customers who may not be familiar with our products' many advantages."
ExxonMobil is a leading supplier of jet oils, hydraulic oil, greases
and specialty fluids for the aviation industry. It provides technical
expertise and service for airline customers in nearly 200 countries
and territories, and offers a complete line of premium lubricants
for the general aviation market.
