May 7, 2024 8:20 AM ET


LEXINGTON, Ky. /3BL/ - Valvoline Global, a worldwide leader in automotive and industrial solutions, and Cummins Inc., a global power leader, announced a major milestone of their longstanding partnership.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of a comprehensive partnership for the world-class brands.

Like all good collaborations, it continues to move both companies forward.

Since 1994, the teams at Valvoline Global and Cummins have worked together in the field and in labs to develop products that complement each other. Working as a single team to deliver the best customer value, Cummins designs and builds cutting-edge engines, generators and power systems, and Valvoline Global creates innovative lubricants and fluid solutions alongside them. Customers benefit from that teamwork and have the peace of mind knowing they have two premium products that were designed to bring out the best in one another.

“Our partnership with Cummins is one that we are really proud of. At Valvoline Global, we’ll continue innovating, whether its diesel, natural gas, hydrogen, alternative fuels, fuel cells and future technologies,” said Jamal Muashsher, CEO, Valvoline Global. “Whenever Cummins creates a product, Valvoline will make sure there are lubricants, fluids and sustainable solutions that complement it.”

“Customers can run equipment with maximum efficiency and reliability, perform fewer oil changes over the life of the equipment, resulting in cost savings,” said Tony Satterthwaite, Senior Vice President, Cummins Inc. “And fleet managers could also see reduced cost of ownership due to product consolidation, increased working capital and reduced risk of incorrect oil-to-engine usage.”

Recently, trade publication Heavy Duty Trucking named Premium Blue One Solution™ Gen2 as one of its top innovative products. The industry-first fuel agnostic technology is approved for use in multiple heavy-duty, medium-duty and light-duty engine types, providing extended drain intervals for both diesel and natural gas engine platforms.

Satterthwaite added, “We have an extended partnership in the form of joint ventures to sell and market our products together in emerging markets, delivering fantastic results while supporting customers. Our Cummins-Valvoline joint venture in India just celebrated their own 25th Anniversary in 2023.”

With a steadfast commitment to excellence and a vision for continued growth, Valvoline Global and Cummins are poised to make an even greater impact on global communities, including automotive and industrial sectors in the years ahead.
