Singapore-based Puma Energy Holdings acquired Pakistans Admore Gas Pvt. and plans to rebrand its 470 retail outlets to market lubricants, the company told Lube Report Asia.
Over time, the [Admore] sites will be rebranded and will offer Puma-branded lubricants along with allied products including coolants and brake fluids, said a company spokesman. The fuels, oil products, and lubricants distribution company said the outlets will market its automotive and motorcycle oils as well as its industrial and marine lubricants.
