FKT Earnings Stay Stable

The Indonesian light vehicle market recorded a 9 increase in January compared to the same month last year, it added. LMC is a global automotive market intelligence company based in the United Kingdom.

In February, FKT announced that it had restructured its lubes segment, resulting in a 67 percent increase in capacity, or around 100 million liters per year.
